If we can only afford one "high-end" spot on our trip, WHICH?

The ones we're parsing are:

- August
- Bayone
- Stella!
- Mila
- Emeril

I realize that these have somewhat ranging price ranges, but they're probably all in the upscale price-range for us, and we're hoping to splurge only once! '

Just for some context, we love Dick & Jenny's, weren't super impressed by Upperline nor Acme.

On this trip we plan to hit 3 of the following: Cochon, Boucherie, Patois, Herbsaint, Lillette. If any of you have favorites among those, please advise! They are all highly recommended on the various threads here.

Thanks NOLA! See you soon

p.s. also curious, is there any noticeable effect on prices/availability of oysters yet? we were so thrilled to discover the 25c oyster special at Luke's for happy hour, and then realized it probably won't be in existence when we are there next week. Sad, of course more so for all the obvious reasons that are far more significant than our petty culinary interests. But, just curious since NOLA is obviously a food destination, and oysters play a big part. I read a lot last week that there were fears, but haven't heard anything more recent.
