You New Orleans folk are all so friendly on this board! I enjoyed reading a couple of recent threads on where to go and will definitely follow some of these suggestions during an upcoming trip. My question is about the big-deal restaurants. We will also be with a child (age 10, non-Chowhound but figure we can ply her with desserts). We'd like to go out for at least one truly great and memorable dinner. Which restaurants best fit the bill? We are looking for a place that won't be filled with tourists, has inventive and excellent food,and a comfortable and/or lively atmosphere. Price is no object. Thank you!
