If You Had Just One Night in the French Quarter . . .

Bruce | Feb 9, 2003 02:01 PM

My wife and I are rendezvousing with her parents in New Orleans for one night this coming May, before driving east the next day. We're staying in a hotel in the French Quarter, and are looking for suggestions for dinner that night. I haven't been to N.O. since the 70s, and my wife and her parents have never been there. So where should we eat? Recommendations from friends include Peristyle and Commanders, but I know there must be others for a "representative" N.O. experience. We're not too worried about the price; I'm more concerned with making the most of it, culinarily and atmospherically. Any ideas out there?

Many Thanks,

Bruce Farr
