More fuel for the fire: Dinner @ Antoine's, Sat., 12/27

re: fuel -- see


Meeting for dinner with our friends from Texas, we were once again a party of nine, and seated immediately in what is known as the "Large Annex Room."

The short of it is that, while the food was nowhere near as bad (IMHO) as "Louisiana Mouth" seemed to experience (see the above link). Service was good, not superb; food was good, neither great nor easily dismissed (as one might conclude from the comments in the other thread).

I *do* think the food is better at Galatoire's and Commander's, insofar as "The Great Dames of New Orleans" are concerned, and significantly better at some of the newer (and smaller) places throughout the city. And were it just my wife and I, I doubt we'd return anytime soon. HOWEVER, we *did* enjoy our meal, and I can certainly see us returning with a party large enough to have dinner in one of their nine (or 11, depending upon how you count) private rooms. Indeed, we'll be back at Antoine's in March for precisely such a dinner . . . .
