And maybe your 3 most disappointing or just plain bad.
You can set your own parameters but I'm saying 3 most memerable meals, which puts it past just the food to the whole dining experience.
My most memorable:
Dominica: Excellant table, great service, great food and drinks.
NOLA: X 2 Both were meals off of the days special menu. I have heard that Tab, the executive sous that won on Chopped, often does the specials.
MiLA: A meal of nothing but apps.
The dissapointments...maybe it is a matter of expectations
August; Great service acceptable meal. Not the ROI I was expecting but will try again
Herbsaint: Amateur service but assume the server was new. Had to read the specials off his sheet and forgot a drink order. Food was OK. I was not wowed by dishes others have raved about. Will try again.
Patois: We dine 3-4 times a year with this same group of 8. No one was impressed. The only dish that got thumbs up was the porkbelly app that I and my daughter ordered. May try again.
I'm not saying these last three were bad meals but they were meals that didn't stand out except, that by current N.O. standards, they were ordinary.
One thing about restaurant opinions, when we return to August or Hebsaint I hope I can happily eat my words. :-)
