      Love that place- the frog legs in Jalapeno Hollandaise sauce is great! Also the chef's feed me menu. He makes excellent sauces!

      I know I'm not a native, and have only been once, but this was easy for me even considering all the great food we had in NOLA.

      1. BBQ Shrimp at Mr. B's
      2. Vanilla Scented Duck at Luke
      3. Muffaletta at Central Grocery

          1. The prosciutto wrapped scallop salad at Mat and Naddie's (followed by the chargrilled oysters which are the best in town imo)

          2. I just had an amazing piece of cobia at Coquette. The simple green salad is also perfection.

          3. flourless chocolate cake at One. This is your basic flourless but it is close to my house and the perfect dessert for a chocolate fiend like me. I am always so sad when I am too full to get it. Which happens alot since I always gorge on their homemade sourdough.

          Sorry I just couldn't limit myself to entrees - I'm always daydreaming about my perfect meal as a whole.

            I will chime in with my 3 favorite things:

            BBQ Shrimp at Mr.B's

            Muffaletta at Central Grocery

            Bread Pudding with Whiskey Sause at Bon Ton Cafe


            I realize these arent entrees but I just had to play.

              We had dinner at Dante's last night. We agreed the chicken under a brick is the best chicken we ever had, even better than any of our home-cooked chicken, which is saying a lot. The panna cotta and shrimp & grits was wonderful as well.
