Prix Fixe menus?
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.

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.
