Lillette or Herbsaint?

erk313 | Dec 22, 201108:29 AM

As you all know, planning meals for a trip to New Orleans can be daunting. This will be our fourth visit, and we're trying to hit some new spots. I've narrowed down our options, researched who's open on Sunday and/or Monday, and feel I'm pretty close to a solid list. My primary dilema remaining comes down to Lillette or Herbsaint. I've read lots on these boards about each, and I'm expecting someone to recommend Coquette instead. However, if it came down to these two, which would you choose and why? For perspective, this trip will include breakfast/brunch at Elizabeth's, Patois, and Mother's (unless someone has a better option for a Monday b'fast); lunch at Mr. B's, Willie-Mae's, and a yet-to-be-determined po boy; and dinner at Stella! and Jaques-Imo's. Favorites from past trips have included Cochon, Butcher, Nola, Commander's (brunch), Slim Goodies, Cooter Brown's (great time watching games there), and Parkway. Past disappointments include August (probably due to really high expectations), Brennan's, Court of the Two Sisters. Thanks.
