Thanks, chowhounds, for helping me recover my memory... (post below). I will definitely go to Frankie & Johnny's. Now the other big question is this: it will be my husband's 40th on the Friday we're there and I want to take him for a big deal lunch. After reading up, including many posts here, I've pretty much decided to head for Galatoire's. Any last-minute input? Should I be considering Commander's Palace instead? I want something really "New Orleans" and he loves old places with character. This will be our only fancy meal...otherwise we'll be going downmarket.
