Strange experience at Galatoires

Visited New Orleans last week and had a wonderful dinner at Galatoires. The waiter asked us if this was our first visit. It was, and he offered suggestions which we gladly accepted. All the suggestons from the wine to the food were excellent, especially the stuffed eggplant. Another member of our group asked for a cup of gumbo, the waiter said: "no, you have enough already". After dinner another member of our party asked for cafe brulot, the waiter replied: "don't waste your money, that is for tourists." My friend wanted the cafe brulot, so when the waiter came back, I asked again for it, the waiter refused again. We all thought it was funny, and I did not want to cause a scene, what would you have done? Despite the glitch, we all thought Galatoires rocked.
