Taxi worthy restaurants? Help with trip planning!

Hi all,
We are heading back to New Orleans later this month, and I need your help!
I think we should take a taxi outside of the quarter for dinner one night, but I can't decide which place we should go to. I'm thinking either Dante's Kitchen, Brigtsen's or Upperline. Which would be best? Or something else?

Also, my husband is obsessed with finally trying Willie Mae's. In your opinions, is it worth it to go there? We'd have to take a taxi. I've heard mixed reviews. Either people love it, it's the best chicken EVER, or they think it's just totally overrated.

And...should we also take a taxi to Angelo Brocato's? I know it's winter, but I keep hearing how awesome they are.

And how is Green Goddess? I've been wanting to try it. And Bayona? And what do you think for breakfast our last day? We thought we'd give Johnny's Po Boys a shot.

Here is our plan for restaurants so far-
Dinner at K-Pauls
Galatoire's for lunch (how early do we have to get there again? 10:30 or 11?)
No set dinner plans. Probably hit Three Graces and Hermes bar for apps and drinks!
Casamento's just for oysters!
Commander's Palace for lunch
Dinner- ? We were thinking of just going to Verti Marte
Brunch at Mr. B's bistro
Dinner- either Remoulade or Green Goddess
Breakfast at Johnny's Po Boys?

For breakfast most days, we'll just get coffee and a croissant at Croissant d'or. Has that really gone downhill? It was fabulous last time we went.

Lots of questions! Thanks for your help!
