New Year's Eve question

How far in advance would you recommend that I make reservations for New Year's Eve? My husband mentioned wanting to go to Antoine's. Am I too late?

  1. Most places aren't even taking reservations yet. And we have no precedent for predicting what the crowds will be like, so your best bet is just to call and ask. I know that lately, uptown restaurants have had no last minute availability, while every FQ restaurant we've gone to has been half empty. Could be different on a holiday, though.

    1. Holidays in New Orleans tend to pack the restaurants, even post-Katrina. Call now and see if you can make a reservation.

      1. Thanks for the advice. I'll call!
