Best Restaurant in New Orleans -- Money No Object

I am going to be in NO on business and will be taking clients to dinner. If money were not an object, where would you eat?

        1. You might spend the most money at August and the space is indeed beautiful...but I'm having way better meals at KPauls recently- that place is on fire lately...depends on what you're really looking for- just my opinion

            I would stay away from k-pauls the food is extremly heavy and everything has think sauces. The atmosphere is not where I would want to take clients either. If you are trying to impress them with a total package August is the way to go. Their wine list is impressive and the menu is incredible. The new tasting menu is out of this world .

              Yeah, I just went to K-Pauls for the first time since Katrina...I did not remember it being so heavy! I just wanted to pass out after eating, and I woke up at 4 am and had to throw it up because it was just making me feel awful.

                Kpaul's in that humidty doesn't quite work, i think

                maybe that's why galatoire's and other joints are closed across town during july or august and sometimes both months.

                  Galatoire's isn't closed during July/August. It was closed 4th of July. The ONLY place I know of with a complete August closure used to be Mosca's, and last year they remained open through their traditional vacation month. Some places close for a week or so, but most everything is open through our long, hot summer: there is no mass exodus or near-complete summer shutdown like some parts of Europe.

                    thanks for the correction and that is more than good to hear.
