West Bank fine dining?

sanglier Dec 17, 2012 09:05 AM

I'm not being a wise-acre, but someone needs a fine dining restaurant for a group on the West Bank, and I literally could not think of one. Then again, I rarely travel to the WB so I am of no help.

    It all depends on what you mean by "fine dining"....but here are a few of the slightly more upscale efforts on Da Best Bank:
    O'Brien's Grill on belle chasse hwy
    Is the Royal Palm still open as a restaurant, or is it just a catering venue these days? http://www.royalpalmfpc.com/
    Cafe Etienne, on 10th St in Gretna: http://cafeetienne.com/
    Tony Mandina's, Pratt St, Gretna

      Once the dearth of choices is understood, I think they'll be in the mix.

        I suggested both, was told "that's not what I mean by fine dining". Hence this post, I was out of ammo!

          So I suppose Nine Roses or Saffron would be out as well.

          Maybe Red Maple. Or is Mosca's fine dining enough?
