Looking for ideas where to take my wife and our friends for my wife's 50th birthday mid April. Ideal is excellent regional food (innovative)and very nice atmosphere (with character .. not necessarially formal) and must take reservations for 4. Not too touristy or loud. Want to try somewhere new .. previously been to Brigstens, Bayona, Commander's Palace.
Places that sounded interesting from other posts include Peristyle, Upperline, Stella!, Gautreau's, Galatories's, Bistro at Maison de Ville.
Apprecciate any advise on above or ANY OTHERS. THanks
