Greetings, fellow foodies/Chowers! I am entertaining between 14-18 University Presidents and Law Library directors in July at a conference. I have been to town several times, but not in a few years, so I am way out of the foodie scene there. Where would be a good place to take a group of 'Educated Tourists' for a really bang-out 'OPP' (Other Peoples Money) dinner in town? I know there are LOTS of places, but I want something really stand-out.
I am looking to, if possible (and it should be, considering the place), stick to a quintessentially Creole/Cajun theme to the cuisine. Anyone can get a good steak anywhere, and these folks I am sure have had many. Atmosphere and ambience are both important, and the abililty to handle a medium-large group is as well. Money is (virtually) no object.
Suggestions? Thoughts? Places to consider? I want and need this night to really shine!
