Thanks to both of you.....so if I were going to drop one, would you agree to drop Buger Bar in favor of either Sage or Raku?

I have been scouring this forum and Zagat’s to find great eats for the week. We will be staying at a condo, so breakfast and lunch are covered. According to our tastes these are our choices so far:

Lotus of Siam
Jaleo
Todd’s Unique
Bellagio Buffet
Cut
And Burger Bar.

Any suggestions? Anything a must eat that I have over looked??

Thanksgiving at the Fairgrounds.

Thanksgiving at the Fairgrounds.

Hi Everyone,

I have made reservations at the Fairgrounds for Thanksgiving Day. It is 85 dollars per person (4 of us) for a table three off from the windows. We get admission, the buffet, all non- alcoholic beverages, a bottle of champagne, and the table for the whole day. I can cancel by the 12th if I want to so, my questions are;

1. Eighty five dollars per person seems worth it, is it??
2. Is the food good?
3. Is the third row off the windows a decent table?

Thanks in advance!!

Oh and one more thing.........I read there will be a Po-Boy festival on the 22nd, has any one been before? Is it fun? Is there music?

I have been researching restaurants and things to do in NOLA for days and my head is spinning!! My husband and I are flying down from Buffalo, my eldest son (22) from DC and my youngest son (20) from Johnson and Wales Culinary School in RI on the 20th of November for a week. Obviously, we will be there for Thanksgiving and that is my biggest dilemma. Should we do the Fair grounds? I hear it is a tradition to watch the race on Thanksgiving. If not, what is the best place for holiday dinners? Do we attempt Turducken? I doubt if my sons will be packing a jacket or anything but jeans, and I understand that maybe a limitation for some restaurants. The list we have going so far for the rest of the week is:

Herbsaint ……dinner
Galatoire’s… dinner
Luke…………dinner
Stanley!.......breakfast
Banyon……lunch
Acme……..oysters

Whaddya think?

Also we were all looking forward to taking a cooking class, what classes are recommended? Then there is all the tours……..any recommendations there? Swamp tours, ghost tours, post Katrina tours, plantation tours……..phew!!
Thanks in advance.
