NEW ORLEANS – Because of the beef short ribs on the menu, TIME Magazine says this restaurant is the best in Louisiana.
So, WGNO News with a Twist features guy Wild Bill Wood is on the way to order from the menu.
The Chef there is Donald Link.
He says the ribs start with quality beef and they’re cooked on the bone.
Then they’re cooked over red wine with onions, thyme, garlic, the traditional French method.
They’re slow roasted for about ten hours. And that’s in the oven.
That’s how Herbsaint got named best restaurant in Louisiana by TIME Magazine.
Here’s what you’ll find about Herbsaint on the restaurant’s website:
Chef Donald Link’s Herbsaint Bar and Restaurant, established in 2000 on historic St. Charles Avenue, is the flagship of the Link Restaurant Group. Herbsaint works closely with local farmers and fishermen, offering contemporary, seasonal French-Southern cuisine with elements of rustic Italian cooking. An eclectic wine list and a knowledgeable staff make for perfect pairings.

Herbsaint is proud to be the only restaurant to have been included on the Times-Picayune’s annual list of New Orleans 10 Best Restaurants since the list began, in 2003.
