You have all thrown a wrench in my plan! Yes, I question the "proposing during dinner"...i think its a bit awkward...and I think I probably wont be able to keep my mouth shut long enough. I like the idea of proposing before hand. thanks.

As for the restaurants...The reason I was set on August was the 3 hour tasting menu...We often go to 5-8 course tastings in Chicago so it wont be "entirely" all that special of a meal. The other reason is that I have arranged for her friends and her sister to fly down to surprise her, however they will not arrive until about 9:30 PM so I would like dinner to be ending around the time they are in the area.

That being said...my GF (hopefully soon to be fiance) LOVES FOOD. It is honestly what makes her happiest. I want the best food i can get but also the best FOOD experience if that makes sense. A few years ago, I took her to SCHWA in chicago. Small restaurant, not wait staff, young chefs just having fun making amazing food. They served you, told you how to eat it (for example "throw this one back like a shot")...it was even byob. 12 courses later we remembered every single dish. four years later, she still remembers ever course she ate there. THAT IS WHAT I WANT.

I must say, she is a bit of a foodie. Not sure if you know anything about Trotters or Alinea but I am looking for food on that level. The reason I want multiple courses is because I want this to be a longer dinner. Her friends will be flying in to join us for drinks afterwards but do not arrive until later. (the entire trip is a surprise, she will not know about anything until she boards the plane)

Hey All,

I am taking my girlfriend down to New Orleans in September and intend to propose to her at dinner (or after) on a Friday night. I am looking for the best food, most romantic spot, etc.

We are from chicago, so something in line with Trotters, Alinea, etc...if it exists. a 12 cours prix fixe or an 8 course at least...something like that.
