Ok all I know the posts about Galatoire's are a dime a dozen. However, I wanted to open one up for everyone to post their ideal meal there. From appetizers to desserts. Soup to nuts give it all. I am going for the first time this Thursday night and am totally psyched! I have a 6pm reservation (I know downstairs in the way to go but I wanted to make sure I had a res as a backup). Think if we get there around 5:20 or so and ask for downstairs we may get seated by 6-6:30? It is a Thursday night and I don't think anything is going on. If so, I will just tell them to disregard to reservation and we will wait for downstairs because I really do want that whole experience of Gal's that everyone screams about! Anyway here is what I am considering based on reading reviews and my personal preferences from studying the menu haha:
Appetizers: Fried eggplant and souffle potatoes, duck breast, and oysters en brochette all sound great,
Entrees- I definitely know what I am getting. The fried soft shell crabs amandine with sauteed crabmeat on top =). I was nervous that maybe soft shell crabs are out of season in Oct but I called the restaurant earlier this week and they confirmed that they still got em yessss... The fried/sauteed trout also soudns delicious. My father will probably go for a meat dish and I have heard the lamb chops are the way to go. The ribeye also sounds very interesting, if it is bone-in which I seriously doubt.
Desserts- Wow I have a huge sweet tooth and they all sound delicious. We are definitely gunna try the banana bread pudding, The chocolate pecan pie and sweet potato cheesecake also sound to die for but we will be eating lotssss of heavy meals over our 5 day stay so if they are not must eats we will just stick to the bread pudding and save the calories and stomach space for the next day,
So how did I do? I would love to hear some more recommendations and please all respond with your own ideal meal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ty.
