Reviews For Mizado Cocina, Amici, and Marti's

Scott Gold reviews new Mid City/Old Metairie ceviche hot spot Mizado Cocina, opened by the folks behind Zea and Semolina. At this loud but slick restaurant he finds affordable Mexican-meets-South-American cuisine with an exceptional tamale, tacos that are a solid bet, well-executed ceviche, fanciful margaritas, a range of classy salsas, but a guacamole that's "crafted tableside" and rather bland. [Gambit]

Ian McNulty heads over to Amici, the casual coal-fired pizzeria on Magazine in the former Byblos space: "Pizza is the high point for a menu that covers a lot of ground but does so unevenly," ie. bland crab and lobster ravioli. "Simple is generally better, like the cool calamari salad... Pastas are served in portions so large they should really be ordered for the table." [Advocate]

Robert Peyton reviews Marti's this week, the once iconic restaurant on Rampart in the Quarter that's been restored and reopened by Patrick Singley. While the art deco revamp leaves Peyton "a little cold," the food is excellent "judging by the Marcona almonds we had with a cocktail and the fried octopus and roasted oysters ... The scallops in a Cioppino-style broth were another hit, as was the grilled quail I chose as an entree." [HautePlates]
