    Will let you know about Bayona when I return next week. We will be there Thursday. Full menu is available for lunch-not limited and 20 cent martinis to boot.

      Pelican Club is still my fav. this year i tried the lobster/scallops/shrimp dish, which is the $35 + 8 = $43. this dish is on the regular menu at $37 by itself. add in the seafood martini and the excellent bread pudding, and it's a bargain. place was packed on a saturday nite, tho unfortunately our waiter was weak (again) and the meal very rushed.

      we also tried the Sazerac Restaurant for the first time -- excellent offering that really surprised me with how well executed it was. i had the veal check app and the the salmon w/ crab entree, both of which really impressed me. the bread was also excellent, the hotel's pastry chef bakes it. service was perfect, too. only thing -- we were the only customers, place was dead as a doornail on a Thurs at 7pm. bummer. i really hope they can pick it up somehow. they were a nice surprise.

        Pelican Club. I never miss it. That is one outstanding value. The menu at Meson 923 looks interesting too, but I have not eaten there.

          " i had the veal check app" maybe they would have more customers if they didn't serve the check as an app.

          Went to Bayona on Thursday for a wonderful lunch. Service and food was wonderful. The room was filled (nice to see in August). You can get any entree which is a great option since most other menus were restricted. Appetizer salad is more than enough for two and the soup was a wonderful lentil puree. We had the mixed grill and I had a shrimp and pasta dish which I can highly recommended. Peanut butter ice cream was the real deal and Mango sorbet was crisp and fresh. Tiniest nit pick was the 20 cent martinis were served in tiny glasses so you pretty easily needed to order a couple- charge me 50 cents and fill the glass.
