Quick Galatoire's Question
You're such a valuable resource. I'm going to New Orleans over Thanksgiving weekend, and I'm planning on finally going to Galatoire's. The experience seems a little daunting. I'm just wondering if I could walk up on a Sunday afternoon, say, four o'clock, and expect to get seated. I realize it's a potential crap shoot, but I've always wanted to go, and I don't need the whole Friday carnival. I just want to roll in and have a good time.
Possible? Any pointers on a potential time I could avoid making a hassle out of what I hope to be a relaxed, enjoyable time?
Thanks all. Always great to hear from you.

that weekend beside Thanksgiving is Bayou Classic and also MNF Saints against the Patriots, so should be crowded in town. having said that, 4pm on a Sunday may just be the best time for a walk-in. otherwise, get a reservation for upstairs. if downstairs is available when you get there, then ask to be seated there instead.
re: Ross B
I have heard people declaim that it is "stuffy" and "conceited" and various other terms to suggest that the person was ill-at-ease. These comments are usually coupled with remarks that the food (often called "cuisine") is not innovative & not "knock your socks off." Ain't supposed to be. It is, in fact, a neighborhood restaurant and anyone is welcome to come and play
