Help with an Anniversary Dinner

Cuisinescene | Sep 21, 2011 07:54 AM

Hi, CHers,

My husband and I are headed to NOLA this weekend for our one-year anniversary. Right now we have dinner reservations at both Commander's and August. Commander's was the first place that occurred to me, since I had a birthday dinner at Commander's several years ago and remember that it was superb, both the food and service. I have been reading through the posts and see that some people feel that it has gone downhill in the past years, but that August is a favorite these days.

My husband and I are New Yorkers and appreciate excellent restaurants. To give you an idea, Gramercy Tavern is a favorite, as much for the service as for the food. In other words, we are looking less for trendy/minimalist and more for classic/elegant.

The question now is are we going to be disappointed if we go to Commander's? They certainly pulled out all the stops for my birthday dinner (albeit a long time ago)- would they do the same for an anniversary? Honestly, for this occasion, we might we willing to trade a little bit in the food category for a superior atmosphere and experience.

Should we stick with Commander's or go to August? I would appreciate all your thoughts!
