We're looking to spend New Year's weekend in town to celebrate my brother in law's 30th birthday. We plan on going to Galatoire's on the 31st for lunch, but his actual birthday is the 30th. So, we were thinking a casual, but great tasting/fun dinner might be just the ticket for Thursday night. I looked into Stella, but it seems a bit more formal then what I'm thinking. They also can fit 7 people at the most and we would probably need 8. The food sounds great though, so if anything else is similar I'd love to hear about it. We usually do Cochon for this type of meal, but if there is something new along those same lines that would be great.
