We had a delightful lunch at Zea's in Metairie today. This being a mall location I did not expect too much, but we were totally won over by delightful service and great food. Our waitress was so enthusiastic it was a real pleasure to watch her work. She was not one of those falsely cheerful types ("Hi, my name is Gorgeous and I'll be serving you today"...), but a truly, genuinely warm and cheerful girl. She made some excellent recommendations as far as the food was concerned. We could not help but to see the manager - he was allover the place and the restaurant showed it - it ran as a well oiled machine ;-)
The food was wonderful, seasoned to perfection and the portions were extremely generous - even for New Orleans. Their rotisserie meats are all fabulous and the ribs are to die for. Even the chicken is nothing to sneeze at.
Their beer list is extensive, but not being a beer drinker I can not comment on their quality. Better come out and check them for yourself.
Overall a great experience and I know we will be back soon (any restaurant where I have enough leftovers for two or three lunches during the week gets an extra start in my book - no cooking lunches!!!).
