              Forget my post. Apparently Chef Chris is no longer there!

            2. Vega Tapas starts its Tour of the Mediterranean Tasting menus on July 14th. Each country lasts a week, with Morocco being the first up. Tasting menu is $27 with an optional wine pairing for $16.


              1. I'm not a huge fan of Delmonico's but Emeril is doing a 10 year anniversary special thru this weekend. 10 small plates each $10. sounds interesting: here's the link:

                1. MiLA - 3 course lunch for 20 bucks.

                    They always have that. Cuvee always has 3 courses for $24..(W-Thur only).

                    1. re: N.O.Food

                      There should be a whole bunch of menus on the above website but I guess all the chefs/managers are too busy in this slack season to come up with a menu. Over half the places have coming soon on their sites and the specials are supposed to begin today. Typical New Orleans timing

                    2. Just got a note from Morton's Steakhouse about their 3 course dinner for 2 for $99 thru Sept. 30th.
                      You may have to go online to print the coupon or mention the special when booking.

                        Morton's has been offering this since before Valentine's Day. Be forewarned re: COOLinary menus. Check each rest. restrictions. Some are valid only a few days per week, many not on Sat.

                        1. re: JazzyB

                          Morton's must have just extended it, as they previously advertised that it ended 6/30/08.

                      2. Maximo's ad for their July special is for Mon, Wed, Thurs, $29.99 for glass of wine, house salad, veal saltimbocca, and choice of chocolate or lemon tortufo.

                          edible, have you been to Melange? Their COOLinary menu looks good.

                          1. re: JazzyB

                            just looked at their menu and it does look good. but I think they may have it listed backwards; the site I looked at reported lunch $30 and dinner $20, hmmm.
                            had dinner there one night and thoroughly enjoyed it. Chef Matt Murphy was cooking then and was quite delightful. he may still be there (thought I read so) the cheeses for desert with the Edmeades Petite Syrah were the most memorable.
                            we closed the place down and then went to hear Jeremy Davenport. great evening.

                              i thought the same so i went in one nite to ask for it, but the hostess had never heard of it. did not stay.

                            Galatoire’s is pleased to announce a new three-course summer Business Lunch Menu for $23. The three-course menu will be available Tuesday through Thursday from 11:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., and is designed to showcase the talents of Chef Brian Landry as well as the area’s bounty of seasonal foods.

                            “While the items offered on the Business Lunch Menu are inspired by Galatoire’s classic French Creole cuisine, this menu is a new and exciting way for patrons to sample some of Chef Landry’s original recipes,“ said General Manager Chris Ycaza.

                            Choice of Soup of Salad

                            Avocado Vichyssoise: Chilled potato and leek soup pureed with fresh avocado

                            Watermelon and Tomato Salad: Chopped watermelon and vine-ripe tomatoes, tossed with fresh basil, olive oil and dandelion vinaigrette

                            Romaine Salad: Romaine lettuce and grape tomatoes with Creole mustard vinaigrette, bleu cheese and spiced pecans

                            Choice of Entrée

                            Steak & Frites: 10 oz. top sirloin steak served with herb butter and fries

                            Grilled Gulf Fish: Grilled Gulf fish over smothered okra with Creole butter

                            Croque Monsieur: Grilled ham and cheese on sourdough topped with a gruyere custard

                            Soft Shell Crab: A single soft shell crab served over summer corn maque choux
                            Caramel Cup Custard

                            1. While the COOLinary menus seem like a bargain, many selections don't appeal to me. I'd prefer to order from the regular menu and pay a bit more for something I'm more apt to enjoy.

                                I'm coming down next week and love some of the coolinary menus. We'll be trying Bacco and Pelican Club for dinner and Cuvee and 7 on fulton for lunch! I loooove bbq shrimps!

                                1. re: funkkjunkie

                                  I am not a fan of 7 on Fulton and find Bacco to be a second tier rest, merely ok foodwise. Cuvee is a treat. Don't miss the shrimp remoulade napoleon app. Baccos' bbque shrimp is good, not great. Just my 2 cents.

                              2. Ralph's is offering their 3 appies and a glass of wine for $28 again.

                                  Wife and I ate at Ralphs this weekend,another outstanding meal. We sat downstairs in the bar looking out onto City Park.
