Commanders post Katrina

Heading back to New Orleans for the third time since Katrina (trying to do my part). We've been to most of our old favorites post-storm except Commanders. I know they were late to re-open. Are they back to close to 100% with quality of food? It doesn't seem to be a restaruant that is getting much discussion anymore.

  1. We went there for brunch on a Sunday in April and the food has never been better. It was outstanding.

    1. ditto from jfood. family dinner there in April, absolutely perfect. already have resos for end of august for next trip.

      1. Went recently, they're back and stronger than ever. Fantastic service and even better food.

        1. I had an extraordinary meal there in May, but I was there with a local who is a regular, so they fawned all over us. I had never enjoyed the place as a tourist; going with a local is the way to do it.

            Was there on a JazzFest Saturday in May. Happy happy! Great food, spectacular service and everyone even friendlier (if that is possible!) than ever. Can't imagine a trip to New Orleans without a stop at Commander's.

              I agree that Commander's is better than it ever was post-Katrina. Had an outstanding lunch there not too long ago and am looking forward to a return visit.
