Ideas for a Sunday?

zin1953 Mar 16, 2009 07:42 AM

Sundays in Louisiana can be difficult . . . an amazing array of great restaurants, and far too many are CLOSED on Sundays.

So far we've got dinner reservations at Cochon, Restaurant Patois, and Rambla, with Gallatoire's (our traditional Friday Lunch), Commander's Palace (our traditional Monday "get-away" lunch -- hard to go wrong with 25¢ martinis at lunch!) already booked. But we have way too many options for Saturday, and very few for Sunday . . .

Any suggestions for Sunday dinner?

    If the weather is nice and you are interested in experiencing some local color, hop in a cab and go to Bacchanal in the Bywater (600 Poland) for a casual supper in the courtyard. You can pick up your wine in the shop in front (without a restaurant mark-up) and head out back for some tasty and very reasonably priced fare. I was there with a group last week and we all had a blast. There was a band playing from about 6:30 to 9:00 and if I am not mistaken there is live music most Sunday evenings. The food is not high-end by any means, so if your heart is set on adding another fine dining establishment to your list this may not be for you, but if you’re looking for an “only in NOLA” experience give it shot!

        I think Stella is the best choice in New Orleans right now on any night, so therefore a no-brainer on Sunday. I've found it worthy of the hype every time.

        Stella is open on sunday nights. We were there just last night. If you go, get the venison. It's the first dish I've had there that I though was worthy of the hype. Excellent dish...excellent.

            True, but we're going to a concert on Friday night and -- since we're staying at the IHouse -- we thought it would be a perfect place for light dinner . . . still, we might have to re-think that . . .

              Swap your Friday lunch at Galatoire's for a Sunday supper....

                But, Celeste, you know Firday lunch at Gallatoire's -- even though it may be noisy -- is a tradition! ;^)

                  Not to me: it's a noisy show full of arrivistes.
