Chef Chris leaving Delachaise??

For those fans of Chris, I know that he is doing a "Spirited Dinner" over Tales of the Cocktail at the Country Club in the Marigny. I highly recommend checking it out. He will being working with Miles Prescott who is very talented as well....should be a great dinner. As far as the comments about the service/food/smoking at the Delachaise....it has always struggled with the fact that it tries to be a food destination and a bar destination. That is what makes it the perfect spot for some nights and really the wrong spot for others. For example, I find it hard to get great service during prime-time bar hours, because the bar staff (who handle making drinks, keeping track of tabs, taking food orders, and figuring out where people are going to sit) seems to be more focused on getting drinks out to everyone. I have started to focus my attention on slower nights of the week and earlier in the night...I have been much happier. I would imagine that the push and pull between bar and restaurant is one of the things that probably made Chris leave. Chris will be missed, but I do look forward to trying RJ Tsarov's food...Chris speaks very highly of him and I know that he used to cook at Arnaud's.

Best Chinese in NOLA...

Now I am familiar with Royal China and 5 Happiness; are there any other chinese restaurants in the Greater NO area that need to be on my radar? I'm looking for real deal chinese food...does it exist?

Best Late Night Dining....

I know that The Delachaise serves really good food until midnight on weekdays and 1am on Friday and Saturday...used to go to St. Charles Tavern a long time ago and I've had some horrific experiences there. Keep the suggestions coming!

Recommendations for a 20-guest grad dinner: Antoines, Arnaud's?

Antoine's and Galatoire's would be great for large parties if they could figure out how to deliver hot food to large parties...been to each many times for parties and they can never keep their food quality consistent as a table grows in size. I'd try Arnaud's or Commander's for a large party, but Antoine's and Galatoire's for a smaller party any day.

Crawfish and Low Country Cooking

I think big fisherman is a really good place to get seafood, but as a tourist...I would want to sit down and take in the experience...Frankie and Johnny's.

Best Restaurant in New Orleans -- Money No Object

Stella is very good, but food that you can get outside of NOLA....Brightsen's is the best by far.
