New Orleans Trip Day 4

The wedding was Sunday afternoon at Louis the XVI (I think) and it was a buffet style lunch. It surprised me how good it was. Etouffee and gumbo and such. We decided to go to dinner that night and decided on Emeril's. My vote was heartily against it since it just seems like a place tourists would flock but then called some friends and checked this board and the reviews for the Flagship seemed positive. I started with the 17 dollar fois gras salad and it was terrible. Absolutely plain awful. The field greens were browned and turning and completely overdressed and had a couple of slices of absolutely lifeless liver on it. I understand it was Sunday but how do you have bad greens for a 17 dollar small salad? My entree was my own fault so I won't fault them: I ordered the rib eye steak. I just had so much seafood and was craving beef. It was fine. Cooked rare-plus to my liking but rather bland. I had thought it would have had some cajun seasoning and maybe some lump crab on it or something. Again, not what I would have ordered normally so I am not going to make a big deal about it or anything. Service was just iffy. I could have been at any of the Emeril outposts around the country. I certainly did not feel I was at the flagship.

Next afternoon was the flight out so had to make the obligatory stop at Café Du Monde. Good as always.

Thank you to everyone on this board who was so helpful in recommending places for us to try. This is a fantastic resource describing a fantastic city We can’t wait to come back! Thanks to all!
