From a New Orleans twist on duck a l'orange to hickory-smoked oysters, here are some must-try highlights that show off the fine-dining restaurant's flair for Creole cooking.

To form this mouthwatering plate, crisp-skinned duck slices are served with crawfish fried rice, chayote squash, orange duck sauce and a quail egg (pictured at top).

Jalapeno cornbread crumbs add a finishing kick to hickory-smoked oysters, which are topped with seaweed flakes and presented in a cast-iron skillet.
