Tujaques. Yes, bad meal is possible in N.O.

BerkeleySQ | Jun 23, 201509:00 PM

Finally made it to Tujaques to experience the "new incarnation". We both wanted to try the off menu sensation "chicken bonne femme". Arrived to a small loud unairconditioned room. OK. We felt really out of place wearing jackets. ( Tattoos and Daisy Dukes were the norm ). So what, we plowed on. After a couple of drinks, a bachelorette party entered and things really went south. These hyenas seemed intent on playing out a women's prison riot. After calling attention to the "general manager" ( the wait staff said there wa no management on duty ). His apology wa only an insult to us. This *ickless wonder would not and could not take responsibility.Had he been able to control the situation things might not have been so terrible. Our entree arrived by now. We immediately requested "go boxes"as the meal was ruined. This took about 20 minutes. Turned out the famous chicken bonne femme was just an old legend. After posting on FB, I was flooded with similar replies. My B&B owner friends have quit recommending this place as all of their clients seem to agree that Tujaques is just an A #1 TOURIST TRAP ! If you're considering a fine dining meal in New Orleans, please do your homework ( this place is a mediocre, c-list, atrocity). Don't waste a meal here. Galatoire's is the REAL THING .
