Which One?

Am coming to New Orleans next week for nine days, my first visit in five years, can't wait. Am planning to hit some old favorites (Galatoire's, Brigtsen's), some new places (Cochon, Vizard's), and some just new to me (Fury's, Nor-Joe). But I need the board's two cents on one question (so far): If there's room for just one dinner at one of these three, which should it be -- Dick and Jenny's, Herbsaint, or Upperline? Thanks!

      3 tough choices. I like them all. Does Dick and Jenny's offer reservations? If not and you would like one then that knocks out one of the 3.

    2. Of those 3, Dick & Jenny's would be my choice. I have never had a bad meal there, something which I cannot say for the other 2.

      1. Herbsaint. Lilette and Iris are better, though.

        1. If time is potentially unimportant, and thereforere reservations are not an issue, I would chose D&J's. Otherwise, Herbsaint.

            Dick & Jenny's does not offer reservations, so be ready to wait. You can enjoy a nice bottle of wine while you wait, I still love Upperline.
