7 dinners, how did I do with my choices?

jimswside | Dec 28, 201012:07 PM

I am heading to NOLA in January for 7 nights, and basically 8 days with my wife and 4 year old daughter(well behaved, and an adventurous eater for her or any age). I made the following reservations with that in mind choosing early dinner reservations for the 6 nights I will be dining with them. One night I will be dining solo @ Commanders Palace (doing the chefs tasting menu).

We are staying a couple blocks from the quarter on Magazine street, and will be depending on street cars, and cabs for transportation. I am not interested in breakfast options(I dont eat breakfast, and the hotel provides a continental breakfast for my wife and daughter). Lunches will be ad-hoc, alot of po-boys, muffaletta's and oysters. I am a big fan of seafood, and raw oysters so they will make up a large portion of the lunch options.

Here are my reservations, let me know what you think.

Saturday: Cochon
Sunday: Domenica
Monday: Commanders Palace - solo
Tuesday: Boucherie - I still need to make this reservation
Wednesday: Luke
Thursday: Open
Friday: Galatoire's

The places I am most excited about in order are: Cochon, Commanders, Galatoire's, Boucherie, & Luke.

Thursday night dinner is open right now, looking for a wild card to put in there.

I think I have about 50 menu's for lunch oyster options(the usual suspects - Acme, Felix, etc.) so we should be covered, K-Paul will be lunch one day, as well as Green Goddess. Other suggestions are appreciated

Thanks for any feedback.
