Christmas Week

You confirmed the reviews I've read on Galvez so pulling it off my possibles.

Of restaurants that we know or can guess will be open for Christmas evening meal, which would you suggest?

We have almost 8 hours between Commander's & August so hopefully we'll be able to eat again.

Thanks for your reply.

Christmas Week

We already have reservations for some meals but now I'm second guessing myself. So many choices and not enough time.

Choices with reservations:
Monday 23rd Lunch Commander's Palace Dinner August
Tues 24th Dinner Revolution
Wed 25th Lunch Domenica
Thurs 26th Dinner Meauxbar

Other Lunch options we're considering Tableau & Acme.
Christmas Dinner we're considering Galvez, Royal House, Bombay Club, Borgne or Luke.

I'd appreciate any comments/suggestions on all choices. We've been to New Orleans several times and with the exception of Acme & Commander's Palace we have not been to the other restaurants listed.

Thanks for y'all's help.

Tasting menu

Thanks for the quick replies. We have already printed out a menu from August......realize this won't be what will be served in May but just to give us an idea.

I've read reviews for Le Foret but have not for Le Meritage. Will look for some. We might have to try more than one tasting since we will be there for 3 nites.

Thanks again.

Just looked at Le Meritage sample menu. It's on my list now. Thanks edible.

Tasting menu

We're coming back for more good food & need suggestions for a restaurant with tasting menus. We've already tried Stella! & would like to try some others. We'll be staying in the Quarter so somewhere nearby would be good.

Thanks in advance.

Need Suggestions for NS Dining.

Great review. It's a big help for us as we making the drive around NS in September. With 2 nites in Cheticamp, I'm really looking forward the the Hometown Kitchen. Also, I had taken Hall's Harbour Lobster Pound off my list as I couldn't find any reviews of it. Now it's back on the list. We had planned to eat at the Fundy Restaurant in Digby as we've been watching the harbour from their webcam. Maybe now just a snack instead of a full meal. Will watch for the Clucking Hen on the Cabot Trail.
Thanks for your review.

Suggestions for chowder and fresh seafood on the sunrise and cabot trails NS

Thanks so much for all your suggestions. We're headed in that direction in a few weeks. Did you try any of the restaurants in the Cheticamp area?

Thanks again.

Anniversary dinner at Latil's Landing at Houmas House Plantation-reviews needed

This past December we were there for a wedding & dinner. Although the food was served buffet style, it was wonderful. We are still talking about the food & the setting.

Stella! or Brigtsens

My vote would be for Stella!

"Stories" Any one been lately?

Thank you Winewolf. We really enjoy tasting menus so I will keep it on our list. Since it is a small dining room, I will be making reservations also.

Thanks again.

"Stories" Any one been lately?

The reviews I had read on "Stories" have been mixed. We will be in Halifax for three nites and I have them on my list of places to eat. Should I switch to somewhere else?

Thank you Bob Mac. Both restaurants you mentioned were on our list too but had hesitated after reading the other reply. Unfortunately, our list is getting longer than nites we will be there.

We're in the middle of planning our trip to Nova Scotia which will include 3 nites in Halifax. As we will be traveling over a two week period, we are trying to pack as light as possible. Where can we have a wonderful evening meal without bringing dressy clothes with us. My husband will have his dockers & nice shirt but nothing dressier.

Thanks for your help.

Shipping a King Cake

I think sending the local ones directly by two day mail would have the same result as Gambino's even with the additional delivery day. My cousin has sent both the filled & unfilled to me each year. Mine always arrive in good shape even tho I can tell FedEx has thrown the box around. The one that arrives at work ends up sitting out and no one has gotten sick yet. :) I say give it a try.

Stanley, a work in progress

Yes, I did ask and was told all they were serving was turkey & dressing as they did not buy the supplies to prepare anything else. We did enjoy trying their brisket that we had heard so much about. The turkey & dressing were good, but not what we were hoping for. I should have called to confirm the menu but got lazy.

Stanley, a work in progress

We were only there for Christmas Eve & Christmas Day. Lunch Chrismas Eve we ate at Acme. Had the Char-grilled oysters. First time to try oysters and they were great. Stella!, of course. Christmas Day we took two tours & squeezed in Tujaques between the tours. Very disappointed. I knew it wasn't going to be "fine dining" & reviews were mixed. I was hoping they would have their regular menu but not so. We weren't prepared for turkey & dressing. It was good but not what we were expecting. I was hoping to try their "garlic chicken". Cafe du Monde Friday morning and then we hit the road.

It was crab instead of shrimp. After five days of seafood, I had a senior moment. We thought the squash soup was wonderful too.

We had the tasing menu and shared the wine tasting. We thought it was great overall. I'm not a fan of avacado, so the shrimp/avacado salad was my only complaint. The "fish & chips" was one of our favorites of the tasting. First time we have tried a wine tasting and I think it really added to the dinner. Each course was well paired with the wine either improving some dishes or improving the taste of the wine.

We ran into Chef Boswell outside of Stanley's as he rode up on his segway. After chatting about our dinner at Stella! on Christmas Eve, he said he had to go in and check on his new..........I inserted "baby" and he said "monster". We had to leave town just after we saw him or we would have tried it for lunch.
