I'm trying to find a good (good enough for a memorable evening) restaurant real close to the Ritz Carlton so that my party of four will not have to skip dinner before a small reception at 8:00 pm. I know Galatoire's is close, but they don't take reservations. We may not be in the mood for steak, so scratch Dickie Brennan's. Palace Cafe? Haven't been there, but is it a white linen restaurant or a large cafe? Stella! is too far away, we would have to hoof it or repark. How close is Bayonna? Is the restaurant in the Ritz Carlton worthy of its rivals nearby? Maybe Herbsaint, where parking won't be too difficult and then we can drive to the hotel and use their parking.
