Modern American

  • 87
Overview

In a historic, three-story carriage house on Chartres Street, Sylvain serves modern American cuisine like pan-fried pork shoulder with Coosa valley grits from chef Martha Wiggins. Named after Jean-Francois Marmontel and Andre Getry’s one-act comic opera performed in the French Quarter during 1796, this cozy restaurant shakes up cocktails like No Fun (Buffalo Trace bourbon, Green Chartreuse, strawberry balsamic shrub, lemon).
