Best Restaurant for a Splurge Girls Night

So many great places - I'd suggest that want to do all three nights of these places: CP, Galatoire's and somplace 'modern' like Cochon... but then when would I get my fill of oyster bars and po-boys.... decisions!

As for night life, an you all recommend any more bars / dancing places to live up the remainder of the night?

I've heard these mentioned so far:

Carousel Bar in the Hotel Monteleone
Bar at the Ritz
Goldmine - boogie shaking after 1pm.

Ya'll are lovely!

Oh wow, you guys are great!

I think I might heed N.O.Food and Hunt's suggestions to do Commanders for the big night - but I think I might try to convince my girls to do Galatoire's the next night.

Brennans for brunch, then, since we were too poor and hung over to get there last time.

Thanks nolalawyer - see you at the Goldmine!

Best Restaurant for a Splurge Girls Night

Hi all-

My girlfriends and I are coming to NO to celebrate our 30th birthdays.

Last time we were there, we were in our mid-twenties and not employed gainfully enough to dine anywhere special. (Though we found many many other ways to fall in love with the food and the city and succumb to hangovers that I still talk about.)

So my question is:

Where should we make dinner reservations for a celebratory triple 30th birthday dinner?

Commanders Palace

are these woefully out-of-date? Am I missing any top contenders?

Can't wait to be back.
