My wife and I are going to host my son and daughter in law in New Orleans for about three or four days this year, including Thanksgiving. Gives us all a chance to get away from home (DC for them and San Jose for us) and enjoy some of this country's great regional food. We haven't been there for years, and the "kids" have never been there. We're looking for something extra special among the special in asking for your help in chosing a restaurant for our Thanksgiving day main meal- either lunch or dinner. Quality and style, ambience and service are what we're after- sort of a cross between the Inn at Little Washington and the French Laundry! We'll be staying in the French Quarter. Suggestions for the day before the holiday and the weekend after also appreciated.
Thanks so much,

PS: If you're in Silicon Valley in the near future, try Manresa in the Los Gatos area. Eclectic and terrific!
