MY 50th B-DAY IN NEW ORLEANS...WHERE SHOULD I EAT?
Hi...I love New Orleans, so we plan on celebrating my 50th there. What's important to us is excellent unpretentious food and service, and a fun cool New Orleans ambiance.
I'm thinking of Bayona or Stella for example...but I seem to love every place I eat in this town.
Any advice would be appreciated!
Leaving tomorrow for a Stella!, Broussard's and Bayona experience. Unfortuantely, I have not dined at two, and the other was 25 years ago.
For me, I'd choose Restaurant August, Brigtsen's or Galatorie's, in that order. Now, my tune may change in four days, but I am answering your question tonight from PHX. If I find that I'd change my mind, based on the next few days, I'll post back. Full reports will be up by next Wednesday - I promise. Also, Broussard's is an "event," so the report will reflect that aspect. It is not the same as when dining as a couple.
of those two I would chose Bayona - the courtyard is supremely New Orleansy and the food is very good-
I'm doing a tour of my favorite courtyards for my birthday next month and Bayona is on my list (along with Pat O's, Cafe Amelie and the W French Quarter)
