need your advice re: 40th B'day trip to N.O!

KathyinNYC | Dec 23, 200401:46 PM

Hi there!! I've been lurking here a bit as I'm getting ready to travel to NO's for my (gasp) 40th, which is January 4th. I've never been before but wanted to go for years and the eating, of course, is 3/4 of my reason for this trip! LOL!....Do any of you have advice for me as to where the best place to go for my B'day dinner might be?? I am open to anything, my major requirements are good service, good food and a nice atmosphere. It does not have to be fancy or really expensive for me to like it but I would like to save the charming dive's for other days while I'm there. I live in NYC so I have access to many fab places here so I would like where ever I go for my B'day in NO to be ,well, really NO's! . I have a book that I've checked off some places that sound yummy...(the book is a couple of years old though)....some were Galatoires, Girods, Johnny's Po-Boys,Mr. B's, Napolean house,Oliviers,Rita's,Uglesich's,Casamento's, Dooky Chase. Any I should avoid?? Any others that would be a great celebratory place?? Thank you so much for any input!
