A Prodigal Son Returns........

Mountaindog | Aug 7, 2012 11:45 AM

I grew up in NO during the late 60' only child, and fortunate that my parents included me in fine dining from a young age. Our favorites back then were Gals, CP and Moran's La Louisianne downtown, and Barts, Brunings, Hong Kong and Masson's Beach House towards the West End.

I have been back 3 or 4 times over the years, but my wife and I are spending a week in early October for the first time in some years.

Our eating wishes are a blend of old and new, and I would appreciate any comments or alternatives that any of the members might care to make....

Friday night: Emeril's. We are staying in the Quarter and this seems a good place to start.

Saturday lunch: Casamento's for raw oysters, oyster loaf, maybe soft shelled crab.

Saturday dinner: Upperline or Clancy's. Help here, please.

Sunday brunch: CP, hopefully in the Garden Room.

Sunday dinner: Not hungry probably, maybe horse some oysters standing at the bar at Felix' if they have their liquor license back by then.

Monday lunch: Poche's at Breaux Bridge during a driving look through Cajun country.

Monday dinner: Drago's in Metarie on the way back into town. Roasted oysters for sure.

Tuesday lunch: Parkway, for roast beef or shrimp poorboys.

Tuesday dinner: Brightsen's

Wednesday lunch: B&C Seafood on the way down River Rd. to visit the mansions.

Wednesday dinner: Gals, probably.....unless we want a change from Creole, then maybe Cafe Minh.

Thursday lunch: August for the prix fixe lunch, or Mr. B's for BBQ shrimp. Thoughts?

Thursday dinner: Herbsaint.

This is all predicated on being able to handle this much food.

How does this program look?
