IMHO, No one restaurant has it all - Your best menu items in Nola


1. Garlic Crusted Texas Redfish w/ Bacon Butter sauce - NOLAs

2. 3 Mini Filet Mignons with three different sauces - DANTE's KITCHEN

3. Cream of Garlic Soup - LUIZZA's by the TRACK

4. Fried Shrimp with creole potatoes - FRENCH MARKET RESTAURANT ON DECATUR

5. Filet Mignon with Crawfish Butter Sauce - LOUISIANA BISTRO ON DAUPHINE

  1. Years ago we would go to antoine's for a French '75, have a dozen Rokerfeller and the turtle (later alligator) soup, then go to Galatoire's for trout meuniere and remoulade and gin and tonic when they still had the little tonic bottles instead of tht crap that comes out of the bar gun.. Sometimes we'd vary a little bit and go to Maylie's. Last time I did it we wewnt to Clancy's--they had swordfish that night & it was great

          OMG - a couple weeks ago had the absolute best soup in years at Matt and Naddies - curried smoked squash. would pay big bucks for the recipe -- You are saying the potato fritter is sadly departed not Nola - right?

      2. Galatoire's Trout Meuniere, for sure.

        1. 1. Oysters en Brochette from Christians or from Bourbon Oyster House (when they first opened)

          2. Chargrilled oysters. Drago's does a great job but Acme is satisfactory if they are easy on the cheese.

          3. BBQ Shrimp from Mr. B's

          4. The Godzilla crab dish at Jacque-Imo's goes over very well with my children

          5. Cochon De Lait Po Boy from Walkers

            tell me about the coucon de lait po boy from walkers - sounds interesting.

            1. Charcroute at Luke; risotto at Domenica; panzanella at MiLa; gumbo at Mandina's.
              Haven't tried the BBQ shrimp at Mr. B's--do you think they're the city's best?
