I am going with my mother to a convention in New Orleans in October. My mother and father(deceased) ate at Antoines on their honeymoon 45 years ago.Mom would like to go there again. She doesn't mind what part of the restaraunt we go to. She remembers being seated in the first area.I read in some travel guides that the service at Antoines could be bad if you are not a regular customer. I also read that there are about ten different dinning areas. So,chowhounds, please help! What dining area should I ask for and what other tips can you give. Thanks!!
