Help - Herbsaint vs. Brigsten's

Confused and soon to be hungry. We will be intown for Jazz Fest this weekend and I made a reservations at Herbsaint while our companions made a reservation at Brigsten's. We have never been to either but this is causing quite the argument. Can anyone weigh in and settle this. Thank you in advance for any opinions

    1. I'd go with Brigtsen's, but Herbsaint is good, too.

            Brigtsen's. Herbsaint is inconsistent.

          2. While chef Donald Link and Herbsaint is a high quality establishment, I would have to say that Brigtsen's is probably one of the best restaurants in the city. If I had to choose out of the two, Brigtsen's would be an easy choice. Chef Frank Brigtsen has been whipping out some of the city's finest cuisine at his riverbend restaurant for quite some time. This is not to knock Herbsaint by any means as I would take Brigtsen's over just about any place in the city. Also, check out chef Donald Link's other restaurant, Cochon in the Warehouse District for authentic Cajun cuisine.
