Saturday Night Dinner with great dessert

sunsuze May 18, 2010 01:53 PM

Coming to NOLA (thrid time) for F&W. Starting out with the stroll on Thursday night and then heading over to Delachaise for pomme frites and frog legs.

Friday have reservation at 11:30 at Mr. B's for BBQ shrimp. Friday evening dinner at Cochon.

Saturday brunch at Luke.

Sunday morning at the Coffee Pot for Callas.

Sunday dinner at Domenica.

Somewhere in the schedule I am finding the gas station on North Rampart Street that has that great fried chicken.

Saturday night is wide open. Would consider just about anything. Might try Bayona but am open to what my fellow hounds suggest. Would love a place that does a really excellent dessert. Also interested in what other hounds think of my current list.

Thanks!

    Saturday dinner, my choice would be Stella! posh dessert as well as cuisine.

    I think Domenica is a very good choice (obviously it's not "N.O." style food) and you could have a drink at the Sazerac Bar.

    I'm not a fan of Mr B's, but I see you have a certain dish in mind. As this is your 3rd? trip, have you tried Galatoire's?

    If you're able try Sucre on Magazine St for a truly exquisite dessert, french macaroons and gelato. http://www.shopsucre.com/

    I'm sure you'll have a quick moving fun time whatever you choose...

      Thank you for your recs. I have been to Stella and don't plan a return. It was average and the waiter was a brat. Plus there was an arguement between some of the staff in front of the patrons which was a big turn off.

      I have read so many mixed reviews of Galatoire's. But may try it on this trip. Will consider Sucre - sounds like a great dessert!

        If you go to galatoires find out the name of a waiter(I use Robert) and ask for him. That way they will assume you have been there before and will take good care of you. The waiter will also be flattered and make believe He remembers you and take good care of you also.

      Looks great to me. Are you interested in Emeril's. They have great atmosphere, good food, wine, deserts, you name it. I love that place.

        I'm not a breakfast person, so no help there. I'm w/Littleman regarding Emeril's. Don't know what type of dining you have in mind, but neither Cochon nor Domenica wouldn be my choices for a meal. IMO, they're better for off hour snacks. Here's my 2 cents:

        August ...tasting menu w/ wine pairing

        Coquette...great cocktails, split the very light beignets w/chocolate sabyon for dessert

        Lilette...make your own tasting menu from about 5-6 different apps/salad.. The mushroom toast is a must. We also add a split entree and dessert. They will serve them in courses.

          I looked at the menus and it looks wonderful! A consideration for sure.
