nice restaurants

I have been living in New Orleans for about a year now and recently married. My wife and I are looking for some nice romantic restaurants off the beaten path to try. We've done Galatoire's and Clancy's. I'm sure there are a lot that we are missing. Does anybody have any suggestions? We looked at the John Besh restaurants but those menus didn't sound too appealing to us. Please help and thanks.

    1. Eleven79, Cuvee. Not terribly romantic but very good: Irene's, Herbsaint, Patois.

      1. brigtsen's, near the riverbend, is a terrific restaurant. an added bonus is you can take the st. charles streetcar there.

        1. Cafe Degas on Esplanade, Martinique Bistro on Magazine St...

          1. Stella, Brigtsen's - also, there are a few restaurants outside of the city on the North Shore that may very well fit that description.

              Yes, La Provence definitely fits the bill, imho.
