Best Raw Bar

Thanks for the recommendations, and I plan on eating at many of these restaurants. What is Luke's Happy Hour all about. A friend of mine told me it is the best deal in town.

Tasso Ham and Boudin Sausage

Does anyone know where you can get Tasso Ham and Boudin Sausage? I have been looking all over the Chicagoland area can not find either.

Thanks everyone I have been craving meat pies since my recent trip to New Orleans. The French Quarter Market I thought I had a great meat.

Louisiana/Natchitoches Meat Pie Recipe

I want to make a traditional Louisiana meat pie and wanted to know if any one has great recipe for this. Is there a difference between Natchitoches meat pies to other areas of Louisiana? Thanks.

Meat Pies

Is it possible to get a terrific meat pie in the FQ, the CBD, Warehouse District? Heard great things about "French Quarter Deli and Grocery", are they anything like the real deal in Natchitoches?

Marchand De Vin Sauce?

I have heard Antoine's has went down hill from there glory days. My brother dined there a couple of months ago and said it was an unbelievable experience. I told him i will dine here and give my own opinion on Antoine's.

Any other recommendations for the Marchand De Vin Sauce.

Marchand De Vin Sauce?

Some of you might know I will be down in New Orleans later this month, and I wanted to know which "old guard" restaurant has the best Marchand De Vin Sauce. I have not had this sauce since culinary school and am looking forward to trying this divine sauce once again. Thanks for all the info about the BBQ Shrimp as well.

Crazy Oysters 3 Part Question

I have to agree all that matters to us is the hotel is clean and in a good location, and we will not be spending to much time in the hotel anyway. I will make sure to hit Casamento's this trip, and I try both Mr B's Bistro and Pascal's Manale for BBQ Shrimp. Maybe B's for lunch at the bar, and the next day Pascal's Manale for dinner. The one dining experience I will not be missing this trip is going to be Galatoire's.

On another note has anyone been on the New Orleans Culinary Tour? Is this a must thing to do, or should we save our money and dine at another restaurant.

Thanks for all the help and if you have any more info to share please let me know.

Crazy Oysters 3 Part Question

We will be in New Orleans Sept. 17th - 20th and I wanted to know who has the best BBQ Shrimp. On a trip down to New Orleans earlier this spring I ate at Deanie's in Bucktown and thought these were outstanding, but I have heard through the grapevine Mr B's Bistro, and Pascal's Manale are much better. My Brother. a regular visitor to New Orleans, also did not like Deanie's and much preferred Pascal's Manale BBQ Shrimp. I will be visiting from Chicago and cannot wait to eat in the food mecca of the world, New Orleans.

Also, with Oyster season starting, is Casamentos worth the trip for Oysters? I will not have a car for this trip, but is it far from the streetcar? Do they own there own oyster beds, or do they get there oysters from P&J Oyster Co? I have not dined here but have read and heard great things, what are your thoughts?

Finally, I wanted to know if anyone has stayed at Hotel St. Ann Marie Antoinette. We will be staying here on this visit and cannot find too many reviews. Is it kind of like the Monteleone?

Thanks

Glenn's Diner

Again, I do love the food. I Just wish they were a bit more accommodating. Each time I was turned away, I think they could have offered us to be put on a wait list. Instead they just told me they were booked and goodbye. Thanks for the feedback.

Glenn's Diner

I have eaten here three times and every one of them has been great, especially on Tuesday with the all you can eat King Crab. But, the past few times we have tried to go, they have asked if we had a reservation, and if we did not they would not be able to seat us for the entire night. Even though the dining room and patio were half empty and each time we went it was around 5PM. One time we were lucky and talked the hostess into sitting outside, and the entire time we were there, the patio and dining room remained half full. After learning are lesson the hard way a few times we called to make reservations they said they were booked for the night and do not take reservations for times within two hours. The man who answered the phone even acted like we were crazy that we were calling to make a reservation. I understand the restaurant is small but I feel they are doing a poor job and are turning customers away. Wondered if any others have had problems with this issue. I think they have good consistent food, but do not know if I will go back if this issue continues.
