We are planning a New Orleans trip from 12/25 to 1/1. Last time we were in NOLA for 2 nights, we ate at Cochon and Luke and loved both. This time we were thinking of Commander’s Palace, August, Peche, Brigtsen’s, and K-Paul in addition to Cochon and Luke.
We are guessing since executive chefs take their vacation during that time, are any of these places not worth going to, or are our fears unfounded? (We once had a not-so-great experience in NYC couple of Christmas’ ago but had a wonderful time in Chicago last Christmas).
We are also looking for more restaurant suggestions. Although Cochon is well regarded in NOLA, I think Luke is overlooked. I wonder why considering we had a wonderful dinner at Luke (we are big pork lovers and the mangalitsa pork dish on the menu at Luke was oh so good).
