We named our restaurant Bistro Nolah, an acronym for New Orleans, out of a love for the style
of comfort food they serve down south. This style of food is the inspiration behind some of the dishes we serve at Nolah

My wife is a huge fan of New Orleans cuisine, and this was a night out to treat her (along with my parents). Our expectations were surpassed in every regard.

Nolah’s location isn’t fancy - in a strip mall off of busy St-Jean Blvd north of the 40 - but the reason this restaurant is solidly booked for every service is the food. This chef-owned bistro has a tightly edited menu, a carefully curated wine list, well-crafted cocktails, and house-made desserts — and they excel at every turn.

We shared appetizers - crab cakes, fried oysters, sweet potato fritters (our fave), and buttermilk fried chicken. Everything was melt-in-your-mouth tender, flavourful, rich; subtle spice heat was matched with creamy sauces.

Fresh-baked bread was paired with small swirls of chipotle-infused butter - an early hint of the attention to detail this team puts into the experience.

Mains were a blackened catfish topped with caviar over a warm sweet potato puree (unctuous, tender, cooked to perfection) with micro greens, a red pepper coulis and dabs of green pea puree; hearty shrimp Creole with jambalaya rice, and pan-seared scallops (on the same sweet potato puree as the catfish).

Echoing Lesley Chesterman’s review from 2017, the caviar doesn’t seem to add much to the catfish, but it doesn’t subtract anything either. The crab cakes are generous arancini-sized balls rather than flattened patties; the texture of the crab meat is somewhat lost but the flavours are superb. We wished for something a little bright and acidic to pair with the fried oysters (a dash of lemon juice?). That said, all these are minor quibbles, and nothing really detracted from our meal.

Desserts - the outstanding choice is the bread pudding and the Mississippi mud pie a close second. A special, the bananas foster cheesecake, could have been more caramelized (maybe a tableside flambé?)

Staff are knowledgeable and made great cocktail suggestions (try the Sazerac).

We reserved a table for 5 but my husband had to sit at the end of a table for 4 and had to put things on the floor I.e.utensils salt and pepper, in order to have room for his plate on the table.

Really enjoyed the Blackened Catfish and my Mum said the Crab Cakes were the best she ever had!
Service was very good and attentive. Found the lighting a bit too dark as I actually would have liked to have seen more of what was on my plate!
