Three Dinners- R'evolution, Root and ??

I've been going to New Orleans for the past 20 or so years but have not been back since 2007. I'm very familiar with the traditional/classic spots and have decided to try new places this go round. Thus, I'm set on R'evolution and Root and excited to try both. I still need one more spot for dinner which will be my first meal and on a weeknight (not that it matters).

I've narrowed the lost down to the following:

Patois
Coquette
Herbsaint
Bistro Daisy
La Petit Grocery

Which one gets the nod? Great food is most important. Service/setting secondary.
If close, how would you rank them?
Missing any I should seriously consider?

Thanks for your help.

  1. You can't go wrong with either of your 5 choices. I would choose Patois. It's down the street from Clancy's which is one of my favorites if you want to consider them. Enjoy your visit.

    1. As this request is for dinner, I would, too, suggest Patois - were this a request for lunch, I would lean toward Coquette, but each of these are nice choices

      1. A couple of additional casual/modern/funky spots are Green Goddess or Maurepas Foods were great, though it is 6 months or since I have been to NOLA.

        1. All of your choices are very good....can't really go wrong. But I gotta say, La Petite's been rockin' it lately.

          1. I wouldn't consider Bistro Daisy. Other choices are all fine. Look at sample menus and go with the one you like best. Or just flip a coin.

              Patois was my initial gut call and I'm leaning heavily toward doing that the first night and then shooting over to Cure for a drink or two.

              Thanks guys for your input. Wish I had time for more meals.
