hi, have decided to stop threadjacking and start my own!
hubby and i are going to be in nola for ONE dinner next week...it's his first time, and he's a serious foodie, really wants to try 'great, local, creole' cuisine. we eat anything, and i had planned to go into the quarter or cbd, but the local friends we're meeting want to stick with metairie. (they're more steak and potatoes types, but they'll humor us on the venue, as long as they don't have to go into new orleans proper.) price doesn't matter, although i realize in metairie dinner will be cheaper regardless.
i've pretty much ruled out drago's, as while we love oysters, it sounds like they don't do anything else really well, and hubby specifically requested creole. i realize it would be best to go into the city, but that's not an option...so where does a creole-loving foodie go in metairie post katrina? thanks!
