This is a great board. I've just started looking at the posts (didn't know the post existed). I've been asking questions at another food inquiry board and they've been very helpful. However, I'd like some advice from you local folks. My family and I are returnig to NO in July (I know it's hot....) and we'd like to try the following restaurants. What do you think, good/bad??? - Mandina's, Galatoires, Cafe Sbisa,
Praline Connection, and the Royal Cafe. We have one night open - any suggestions. One problem, I really don't like to go to restaurants who don't take reservations (I know about Mandina's), because it's too hot to wait outside or inside. Thanks for any advice. If you need to know about Manhattan restaurants, let me know. We live about 35 minutes from the city.
