R’evolution Question

Going for first time for wife’s birthday with 3 other couples. I am hard-of-hearing and was wondering if anyone had a recommendation for which room we should dine in?

  1. We dined at a corner booth in the Louisiana Parlor Room, and it was very quiet (and beautiful).

    1. The first question that I would have is, what do YOU like?

      Good luck, and enjoy,


      1. I'm heading there is a few weeks and considering doing the tasting menu at the chef's table. Has anyone down the tasting? Worth it? Thx

          They weren't doing it either time I've been, so you might check ahead of time to make sure it's an option. They need to do a tasting menu throughout the restaurant.

            It was also not yet an option, when we dined there at the end of July.

              They told me it is available at the chef's table only right now and you need to book in advance.

              We dined there for the third time Fri. hoping to try the tasting menu. Alas, it has not yet materialized. Our waiter said it has been discussed but may be months before one is set. However, he said that they would be happy to let us create our own and they would split our selections serving them as a tasting. We plan to do exactly that next week. We shared the 40oz tomahawk ribeye with a side of marrow sauce. It was superb, extrememly tender and flavorful sans sauce. The sauce just gilded the lilly. Once again the crab beignets outshone my appetizer (corn/ crab capuccino). We split the sizzling oysters which were tasty although the bacon overpowered the delicate oysters. Dessert:: I had the vanilla souffle with rum fosters sauce. My husband chose the (deconstructed) banana cream pie. This was hands down the better choice.

            3. Just a guess on my part, but I think that the OP was asking something more along the lines of if any one dining room is generally quieter than the others, rather than recommendations about what to order.

                  My response was to "The Chowfather". I guess neither you nor Fydeaux were paying attention.

                    Actually I have been paying attention. My agreement was not aimed at any single comment here. Obviously this entire thread immediately went off the topic set forth in the original post, after I offered shanefink an initial suggestion.
