Tasting/Degustation Menus

I'm going to be in NOLA from August 10th-14th. I'm flying in Friday very early and leaving mid-day Tuesday. I basically need to plan lunch/dinner for Friday - Monday which is 8 meals in total and am looking for recommendations. I love tasting/degustation menus, especially paired with wine. Cost isn't really a factor either.

This is the list of the restaurants that I have been to in past trips. While I know that most of these restaurants have rotating/daily changing menus, I would like to try new places if possible.
Restaurant August - good food, okay service
Besh Steakhouse - okay food, good service
Bayona - good food, good service
Commander's Palace - okay/good food, good service
Antoines - bad service/bad food
Court of Two Sisters - was overrated
Emeril's - good food/slow service
Delmonico - good food/good service

The list as of right now is:
Friday - Galatoire's
Saturday - Bayona "light lunch" - I'm only going to go here again if someone can't recommend another restaurant
Sunday - Bacco Tasting Lunch
Monday - Herbsaint

Friday - Cafe Giovanni - let Chef Duke feed you
Saturday - Brigsten's (do they do a tasting or degustation menu?)
Sunday - Riche by Todd English ??? (would it be better to do this for sunday breakfast/bruch and do bacco tasting dinner instead?)
Monday - Cuvee Degustation

Anything that I'm missing or anything that people would recommend I change in the line-up?
