Galatoire's - First time...Hazlehurst, you listening?

Monch | May 5, 2009 08:16 PM

Howdy all,

My dear wife and I have not been to our dear NOLA since 2007.

She has surprised me by setting up a trip, from Wisconsin, for the third weekend of June. She is calling this my birthday present and has given me free rein to make ALL decisions about dining.

When last we went, we put together a breakdown of our NOLA experiences, for our friends, that was subsequently vetted by the sages on CH. Hazelhurst, you stressed our need to visit Galatoire's and we are heeding your advice.

We are listening and have taken the suggestion of a dinner at Galatoire's. We'll be there at 6:00 on 6/21 (Sunday).

I have read some interesting posts about the eccentricities of the service and am NOT daunted.

My question, and my point, is: What must not be missed at Galatoire's?

Please give this initiate as much guidance on enjoying this bastion of dining as is needed to enjoy and understand.

Your advice and patience is appreciated.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
