Graduation Dinner in NOLA- Prix Fixe perhaps?

So, I'm graduating from LSU, skipping out on walking and my folks and I are going to dinner in New Orleans. It'll be a Friday night. My parents recently went to Stella and August, so I was looking for something similar to that. Cochon and Boucherie are on my list, but since this is a special occasion, I don't mind dressing up and going all out.

I'd also like to do some sort of tasting menu, perhaps. I've never done a food/drink pairing.

I was thinking MiLa or Commanders, but was going to get the board's opinion on where to go on a fine night like this. Any and all suggestions are very welcome.

  1. I'd go back to Stella and order the tasting menu.

    1. Le Meritage in the Maison Dupuy Hotel has a wonderul menu with wine pairings. You can also order small plates or large plates. I love this place.

      1. You only graduate once.

          1. Le Foret is a really nice fine dining experience. Food and service are excellent. They have a tasting menu as well. The one listed on their website might not be what's being served right now, they seem to switch it up a lot.
