Returning to NOLA after falling in love with it 2 years ago. 7 days, No budget, Looking for just the BEST!

I think you've a good list and will enjoy your meals. I tend to agree with other suggestions above that the Duck 5 ways at Stella is superb and superior in my opinion to the other Duck entrees. Please post your trip report as I'm anxious to see what stood out and what didn't. Enjoy!

4 nights in Paris. Need suggestions for a Thursday night

I’ll be in Paris for a few nights in November and need some help picking my last restaurant. It’s two of us and we arrive on Wednesday afternoon and depart via train Sunday afternoon. At the moment we have:
Wed. Dinner: Le Regalade SH for Wed night
Thursday night: open
Friday Dinner: JCD
Saturday: Passage 53
Sunday Brunch / Lunch – Open

For Thursday night I’m deciding between L’Arome, L'Grume, Dominiue Bouchet, and Sauterne. It seems that DB is much different than the others (eg. Price, food) but I’ve heard really good things. Also, taking into consideration the reviews from JT about Sauterne it jumped on the list. Can you help separate my choices? Maybe some of the choices I have listed are really similar to dinners that I already have reserved.

Also, does anyone have a particular Sunday restaurant that they enjoy? I initially was thinking Le Cinq but think that might be too much prior to getting on a 2.5 hour train and also following Passage 53. It doesn't have to be a michelin starred place like Le Cinq but I have read so much about their lunch so that's why I was considering it.

We’re staying in the 8th but distance is not much of a concern as I think the Metro connects the city quite well. Thanks for your help and look forward to hearing your feedback.

Eloping to New Orleans

I would agree wholeheartedly that flour power in Chalmette is very worth it. I also agree that Stella would be an excellent choice for your occasion. I would't quite agree with the above statement about Antoine's. It's very much a local establishment but I've sent many of visitors to Antoine's that have come back raving about it. I would say that it's not a place you just walk into but it's more of an occasion type of place.
