Prix Fixe menus?

mbc1217 Aug 12, 2008 06:21 PM

Hi everyone, I just discovered this board, so please forgive me if this topic has been addressed before. My husband and I will be in New Orleans the first weekend of September, and I'm looking for suggestions for good prix fixe menus. Unfortunately we're missing the "COOL" menus : (. Lunch or dinner suggestions are welcome, but we're mainly looking for dinner Saturday night.

      I will second Restaurant August, for a "tasting menu." I was disappointed with the wine pairings, but that was covered in my review of the meal. For the food, it would be hard to beat, though Stella! was right up there. Plus, their wine parings were excellent. Also reviewed.


      Restaurant August
      301 Tchoupitoulas Street, New Orleans, LA 70130

      Stella Restaurant
      1032 Chartres Street, New Orleans, LA 70116

          Thanks for the suggestions. My parents really like Stella too. Could you tell me how to get to your review? When I click on that link it takes me to a form to write a review, and I can't figure out how to get to the actual reviews!

              I did enjoy, greatly. We loved Bayona, too. It was one of the best meals we have ever had. And it's so nice to have some breakfast ideas - we have had the worst luck Sunday mornings. I am looking forward to trying the Coffee Pot! But I didn't see the August review?

                Sorry, I missed that review. Here is that one. It's mixed in, as usual, but you can find it easily.

        many of the Brennan-family restaurants offer fixed price menus, from Palace Cafe to Commander's Palace.

          Thank you and JazzyB. The only Prix Fixe/Tasting menus that I "remembered" for the Brennan restaurants was the Brunch at Brennans. Maybe I missed them, or they have come about since our last visits, or I have just forgotten... what were we talking about again?

            if we're talking about fixed price menu options (3 courses for $xx), then yes, many of the brennan restaurants have them for dinner on a regular basis. Mr. B's changes every week. check em out.

          I've really enjoyed the prix fixe meals at Slice.

          Now, I know what you're thinking - why would you order a prix fixe at a pizza joint?

          Slice just might surprise you - and the prices are very, very reasonable.

            The first page of Tony Angelo's menu is all in the prix fixe style. If you go there, order something that comes with the spinach salad. There is something about that salad, perhaps a lot of anchovy in the dressing?, that is really amazing. The eggplant named after a woman is really great too.

              GW Fins on Bienville in the French Quarter is doing a $30 3 course dinner for the month of September. The choices looked pretty good.
