Here in San Francisco alone, there are 165 restaurants on Opentable.com, including many top restaurants (Boulevard, Fifth Floor, Masas, Michael Mina, etc.). In New Orleans there are only 15. I would love to get points for dining at one of these restaurants, and Im wondering which of these would be the best choice. I will be in town starting on a Wed. night through late Sunday afternoon, and plan to go to only one of these, unless there is a great Sunday brunch that I shouldnt miss, then I would go to two.
If it helps, Ive noted where Ive already been on the OpenTable list, plus noted restaurants Ive also been to during my previous trips, including when, since things change.
Arnaud's - been twice (1998 & 2001)
Cuvee was thinking about this based on Chow reviews, but is it appropriate for a single woman? Often mentioned as romantic would I be out of place?
Emeril's Restaurant ate at the food bar in 1998; thought it was great, but should I go back instead of going elsewhere?
MIDI South of France
Morton's, The Steakhouse - we have one here, so don't need to go in NO
The Veranda Restaurant
The Windsor Court Hotel - New Orleans Grill
Windsor Court Hotel - Le Salon
Where else Ive been:
Bayona dinner 2001; lunch 2003
Brennans brunch 1998
Brigtsens dinner 2003
Commanders Palace jazz brunch 1998 & 2001
Gabrielle dinner 2003
Mr. Bs Bistro dinner 2001
Stella! dinner 2003
Any comments or recommendations on the OpenTable restaurants would be greatly appreciated. Also, I would be interested to know why there are so few restaurants on OpenTable in NOLA.
Thanks in advance - this board was a great help when I was there last year!
