        Thank you but where is the tasting menu, menu?

        1. re: sockster

          Previous NOLA Chowhound posts have alluded to the tasting menus of both of the places I mentioned, which is why I was asking Edible Complex about his/her opinion.

          Went to La Meritage for NYE - GREAT! would recommend to anyone. The food was lovely, and the wine pairings were brilliant.

        3. a friend had the degustation meal at August (10 or 11 courses) and said it was the best mean of his life. i believe it is a separate entity than the normal tasting menu (5 courses).

          Green Goddess also does a chef's tasting menu dinner, which he does personally and with great care.

          1. Just cam back from New Orleans. We had the 7 Course Degustation at August. It was $85/person without wine pairings and worth every penny. We ate for nearly 3 hours and every dish was amazing. Highlights were a sear scallop studded with bacon over lentils, a petite filet with a sauce made from reduced oxtail and red wine, and pork belly with black eyed peas with a broth that almost made me slurp from my bowl. It may have been the best meal I've ever had.
