if you were to give a friend

a $100 gift certificate to dine at a French Quarter restaurant, which one would you choose?

  1. I'm not a local, but I just went to Galatoire's last week and it was outstanding. Excellent service and my lamb chops were cooked perfectly. It will probably be more than $100 after wine and cocktails though so that's something to consider.

    1. Not in FQ, but either August or Emeril's.

        i would give a 250 gift certificate to galatoire's! you will ned the extra $ for booze! kidding, i think on $100 mr. b's would be a great choice in the french quarter. irene's cuisine is always wonderful as well.
        outside of the quarter, i have had a really amazing dinner at emeril's (chef's table) but i also had two dinners there that were really average at best. august tends to use way too much salt IMHO.

      2. Galatoire's or Stella! (It would certainly cover one person but not 2 I'm sure)
