Finally, went across the pond to try out the new garde. We had a fabulous experience. They have an "express" 3 course that one person had and was great! The bread pudding was like a custard (thats a good thing). And the wine list was balanced in price and selection (had a great bottle for $45). The mini farm out back was pretty cool to see too. The only thing i really missed was seeing Chef Chris charm the dining room.

      This is one of those places that I've been meaning to try for 20 years -- I've driven by it many times on my way to Sal & Judy's -- and never have. Is it worth the drive from New Orleans? (And speaking of Sal & Judy's, are they still chugging along?)

        Yea - you should def go. But Chef Chris past away recently...he made it very special. John Besh of August has taken it over...and from what I understand...not much has changed. Still getting rave reviews. Maybe "iknowwhatitmeans " can expand on menu items, decor, etc.
        Sal & Judy's...pretty sure they are alive and kicking.
