Ian McNulty reviews Desi Vega's Steakhouse this week, and deems it a "notable" addition to the CBD: "The menu here is basically the same as at Mr. John's," with lots of "poised, plump" steaks, "but the setting is so different that the two restaurants feel worlds apart... Desi Vega's is sweeping, open and white, with huge windows framing views of passing streetcars and the oaks of Lafayette Square." [Advocate]

Brett Anderson has a Two Bean (meaning good) experience at "game-changing" Cane & Table this week. Several of Adam Biderman and Ean Bancroft's dishes highly impress, including "peas and rice, so rich with andouille and pickled pork, and so good because of it." but Anderson finds that "competing as a restaurant may not be Cane & Table's primary goal."

Scott Gold heads to Yuki Izakaya, and finds "excellent" small plates, sake and shochu: "Visiting Yuki for the first time is like being transported from Frenchmen Street to a bustling tavern in Tokyo or Osaka...Diners looking for familiar Japanese items will not be disappointed," but "fortune favors the brave, and it's worth a step outside of your comfort zone," like the "mentai oroshi: spicy cod roe atop finely grated daikon," which is not to be missed. [Gambit]

Robert Peyton reviews Atchafalaya, which is having a moment thanks to the addition of new chef Chris Lynch: "Fried green tomatoes aren't exactly cutting edge, but when you top perfectly executed slices of unripe tomato with lump crab and a spot-on remoulade, you've got a classic."[HautePlates]
