    1. Brigtsen's and Stella are both great but offer VERY different experiences. For visitors looking for a uniquely New Orleans experience, I would rank Brigtsen's over Stella. For those who want the most creative push-the-envelope experience, Stella wins out. I've only been to Gautreaus once, and it was lovely, but comes in third for me.

      1. I had absolutely one of the best meals of my life last week at Stella. Our party of four had the tasting menu with the wine parings. Simply outstanding!

        I ate at Brigtsens a year ago and was not soo impressed.

        1. re: mjpd

          I've been to both places during the past 6 months. I have to agree with jfood...two very different experiences two unbelievable meals. Too close to call!

        2. Went to Gautreau's last week. Great meal! I was impressed with the delicious celery soup - very silky. Also, shrimp salad was terrific. New - (ish?) chef. I understand she is about to be named to Food & Wine's top new chefs this year. Room can be a bit noisy - it must have been the table with all the Spur's coaches...
