    1. re: edible complex

      Gal's is closed on Monday. Mandina's is open.

      1. re: N.O.Food

        I don't get the appeal of Mandina' Lilette open on Monday? I'd go there if it's open. I like Luke too.

    2. Try Coquette for Sat. dinner. Excellent cocktails, delicious food. You will need a resv. Cochon is open Monday as is Herbsaint (IMO a far better all round diniing experience). August's tasting menu w/wine pairing is wonderful.

      1. Just got back from a week stay in NOLA and went to Domenica for the first time. I can't say enough good things about it.
        I also ate at :
        August, Gautreau's, Cochon Butcher, Cochon, Gautreau's, Lilette, Rio Mar, Herbsaint, Parasols, Luke, Green Goddess, and others I cannot recall right now.
        Domenica was our favorite meal this time around. There were some very close seconds but Domenica's spicy pizza, the chicken livers and the charcuterie with the lardo just delighted me. We tasted damn near everything on the menu (I kid you not) and there was nothing that disappointed. Alon Shaya is not only a extremely talented chef but he is also exceptionally welcoming and gracious.
        I would absolutely make Domenica my Monday night pick.
