Help! Want to Try Something New for Anniversary

kkak | Jul 5, 2007 06:38 PM

Hello all New Orleans Chowhounds.

We'll be celebrating our 10 year anniversary next month in New Orleans. We visit at least
twice a year, but lately some of our favorites have just not been the same.

We visited Upperline in January, and all I can say is that is was sub par at best. The food was overdone with garlic, and everything seemed to be overcooked, too. Most disappointing was the elimination of the wonderful tasting menu we used to enjoy so much.

I hate NOLA's and wouldn't eat there again- even if someone else paid. Galatoires was
a good experience, but not fantastic. I've heard Commander's isn't quite the same anymore...another one of our old favorites. Herbsaint was just okay.

So, this is what I want: I want us to have that "WOW" factor when we have our dinners.
I want the meals to be romantic and memorable. Somewhere I need to sing from the top
of buildings about. It seems I've missed that recently when in New Orleans.

Some I've thought about are Brigstens and Clancy's. Any other suggestions are most
welcome. Oh, and I'd love to hear your "WOW" story!

Thanks, again.
