We're going to spend five days and nights next week doing some serious eating in NO, partly for pleasure and partly for the taste memories (one of my traveling companions is opening a new restaurant in northern California and we're doing research for his menu - work, work, work...)
So far we have dinner reservations at K Paul's, Tujaques (I'm a sucker for the bonne femme), Brightsen's, and Commander's Palace. We need one more dinner reservation (for Thursday, St. Paddy's day). We could care less about partying with the amateur drinkers, but the food should be, well, anything that's local and good.
I was just reading about Pampy's - is Austin Leslie still there, and is it worth a try? What's your local can't miss fave?
Thanks in advance...
