As a grad student, I'm forced to be pretty tight with money, so I like to take the girlfriend out for a nice meal in the city when I come across some extra cash. This weekend, I was able to make a little money that wasn't in my budget ($180 to be exact), and I want to put it to good use!
My question is, do I take her out to 1 top of the line place and blow the whole sum of money, or do I maybe break it down into 2 very nice meals of around $90-$100 each.
We've been to many places in NOLA, but there are a ton we haven't been to that I want to try.
For the one meal, I'm considering August, Galatoires, or Bayona
For the 2, I'm considering Cochon, Herbsaint, Jaques Imos, and Bon Ton.
VERY open to suggestions about places I left off, and love hearing about specific dishes at suggested places.
By the way, went to Brigtsens a few weeks ago (mainly b/c of all the great things said about it on this board), so that's out. Loved it though!
