Lonely Planet review

Formerly Peristyle’s, Wolfe’s is now named for its chef, Tom Wolfe, an alumnus of Emeril’s kitchens and popular stalwart of the New Orleans eating scene. The space is wonderful, all warm lighting and cozy accents, and has served as a restaurant space in one form or another for over 130 years. The food’s great, too; the lamb T-bones with lavender demi-glace are gorgeous, and while the menu isn’t as adventurous as we might have hoped, this is a dependable place for a sumptuous meal. If you want to push the limit of the kitchen’s skill, we recommend opting for the tasting menu (from $35 for three courses).
