Steak on Sunday?

I'm looking for a steak rec that's open for dinner on Sundays. Unfortunately Dr. John's and La Boca are both closed Sundays. What's up with that anyway?

What's are my best options outside of those two?

  1. Huh, I never noticed that many local steakhouses are closed on Sunday. Desi Vega's (owned by the same ppl as Mr. John's) is also closed on Sunday, as is Charlie's uptown.

    Crescent City Steakhouse is open on Sundays:
    So is Delmonico, which would be my choice:

      I saw a couple reviews that said the Crescent City ribeyes were quite thin. Did you happen to notice that? Thin cuts are a huge pet peeve of mine.

    2. Restaurant R'evolution is worth your consideration.

      1. Galatoires 33 is open. And very good.

          i understand jackets are required at Galatoires? Haven't heard that one in about 20 years. Can I at least wear jeans in there?

            If you are not comfortable being nicely dressed, and being surrounded by others who are also nicely dressed, you should consider dining elsewhere. Although you may find it antiquated, for many of us a dress code in a top tier New Orleans restaurant is "a feature, not a bug." And I say that as a visitor, rather than a native.

            If want to know what you "can" wear, call Galatoire's and ask. But the question should instead be what you "ought" to wear, and how best to respect the tradition of the restaurant in which you will dine.
