Food itinerary for a former Nola resident taking a first timer

Hi all,

I am taking my girlfriend for her first visit to New Orleans in a few weeks and wanted to get everyone's input for the meal agenda. We get in on Friday and leave on Monday. Here is what I have slotted in so far...

Dinner - Brigtsens as a refined but still local type of restaurant, and one you cannot really find outside of NOLA. Always was one of my favorites.

Breakfast - Surrey's
Lunch - somewhere on Magazine and lighter fare
Dinner - someplace that is fun for a group and that would complement the other two dinners.

Brunch - Patois? Commanders? Green Goddess?
Dinner - Le Foret

I think that Sunday doing both Commanders and Le Foret may be a bit much. Have read great things about Green Goddess, so that could definitely be a fun way to start a day of walking around the quarter, since we will be walking Magazine St on Saturday. I definitely want to get to Le Foret based on all of the reviews. So really I guess that Dinner on Saturday is the one I am having a hard time settling on. Thank you for any help or advice.

723 Dante St, New Orleans, LA 70118

Green Goddess
