Decent Choices?

I would go to patois. The atmosphere is very cozy and the food was great.

post new orleans restaurant reviews

patois was amazing. I had the gnocchi which was great and the rabbit was yummy. The snickers desert was great too.

August brunch-great!! We had banana bread and the crab gnocchi which was fantastic.

Coquette- my appetizer was ok. The atmosphere there was just ok. My fried chicken with pasta was incredible. I would go back there for the chicken dish, but overall I liked Patois much better.

Peche-the tuna dip reminded me of white fish salad and I didn't like the consistency. The smoked trout with cauliflower was amazing as was the tuna crudo. I also loved our desserts.

Boucherie-My bloodymary was amazing and so were the boudin balls. We sat outside and our waiter was very nice. I would go there again.

Central grocery- I bought a sandwich for the plane and really enjoyed it. I like the bread too.

Overall it was an amazing trip!! Thank you all for the many suggestions. Next time I will try lillete

my list of restaurants for three days

I start with lunch at boucherie then have dinner at Patois. Brunch at August and dinner at Coquette. Then Monday dinner at Peche. I still need two lunch places for Monday and Tuesday. Maybe Dick and Jennys. Any thoughts.

Does this sound like a good line up??

so I will go to Patois. Glad to hear it is good for one person. What about Frenchman street for my actual birthday dinner? Are there any good places?

Also where should we eat on Monday? Peche? Lilette? Herbsaint?

November 30th bday dinner and one dinner alone on the 29

I will be in new Orleans for 3 nights. One the 29th I was planning to go to Patois on Saturday, Coquette on Sunday (bday night) and Dick and Jennys for bday brunch sunday. Monday night I was thinking we would go to Peche.

I will be by myself the first night so is Patois a good choice and is Coquette a good choice for my birthday?

I'm more concerned with quality of food. On my birthday night though I want to be someplace festive.

Thanks in advance!!

Brunch UES or Midtown East plus Itinerary help

A restaurant that I went to recently and loved was Perilla. It was just great in every way. That might be a good choice, but it's downtown.

Brunch UES or Midtown East plus Itinerary help

skip buddakan!! it's old and dated. I think a nice place to go to brunch would be abc kitchen and you can make a reservation. What kind of food does your mom like? Midtown doesn't have great choices for food. What about Monkey bar for dinner in midtown?? They probably have a brunch too.

New Orleans restaurant for group of 10 during Jazz Fest!

Dick and Jennys would be my suggestion. It's a fun spot

Help construct epic progressive dinner in New Orleans area - only the best

I agree with this except I would skip the pork tederloin and go to dick and jennys and get the savory cheese cake and then go to camelia grill to get the pecan pie thrown on the grill with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

great dinner at dick and jennys

it was in a creamy cajun flavored sauce that was amazing with flounder shrimp, oysters, and I think crawfish.

great dinner at dick and jennys

It was so great!! I had a gulf shrimp and tasso savory cheesecake that was amazing. I also had a seafood stew which was great as well.

Bayona--yea or nay?

I would say no and go to one of these places instead: coquette, patois, dantes kitchen, dick and Jennys, liliette, or brightsens. I like all of these place better than bayona.

Best dishes at Convivio???

I have to agree and I'm not that picky. The food lacked flavor.

Dinner choices narrowed down to 7

why don't you replace Tujagues with Brightsens. I ate there and I ate at stella too. I liked the food at Brightsens much better. I would prob switch from stella to August instead. I too am trying to figure out where to eat when I go back down. Don't forget to get the pecan pie thrown on the grill with a scoop of vanilla ice cream at Camelia grill.

Loud, hearty cajun food, whiskey drinking

Sorry to disagree, but as a native New Yorker, I don't think there is anything Cajun about lukes. To me it feels like it could be one of the many restaurants in Manhattan. I second Jacque-imos too
