I need my fellow 'Hounders to unearth the answer to my question:
About once a year a friend of mine and I take an out-of-town friend to a New Orleans restaurant that does a nice job with sweetbreads and/or foie gras (seared, not a terrine). So far, off the top of my head, we've satisfied his taste for said with visits to August, Herbsaint, Bayona, Gautreau's, MiLa, Bistro in the Maison de Ville, and the now-shuttered Cuvee. Some new candidate selections would be appreciated (side note: he's only in for one night and Stella is booked).

The best sweetbreads I ever had in New Orleans were at the erstwhile Christian's. I wonder if the new Redemption would have them?
I had sweetbreads at Le Crepe Nanou a couple years ago that I really enjoyed. I haven't been back since, but since it's a neighborhood mainstay I doubt they have changed much. I am not well versed in sweetbreads FWIW, but that meals sticks out in my mind when I think sweetbreads.
