Galatoire's is closed tonight- replacement rec?

In town with my parents for the night, we were hoping to go to Galatoires but just found out they're closed on Monday. What's the best spot for classic, upscale New Orleans dinner?

Marine Graduation

I am heading to San Diego this week to watch my brother graduate from Marine Boot Camp. I am trying to find a great dinner to celebrate my brother, and need some help. My family will be staying at the Manchester Hyatt, so looking for something fairly close by.
I've heard great things about Cowboy Star, hoping to get some other recommendations for Italian or seafood, something with a great celebratory atmosphere that isn't too stuffy. Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the recs! In regards to the Davanti comment, it seems it mostly small plates and pizza, with a few pasta dishes. Looks great, but don't think my dad would be into it.

Need recs to impress Dad

My dad is coming into town this weekend, and I want to take him somewhere really great Sunday night. He is a big Italian buff, and previously I have taken him to Cafe Spiaggia, Piccolo Sogno, and Merlo on Maple (all fabulous). Can anyone recommend another great Italian? I would like to take him to Little Italy - Davanti Enoteca is not the style I'm looking for. Any recs would be greatly appreciated!
