Romantic Birthday Dinner for couple from DC

We love to go to Upperline for our anniversary. Delicious food, intimate atmosphere. You can take the St. Charles streetcar and walk a couple of blocks. Love it! Get the sweetbreads...

Coop's

I love NO and we enjoy taking the kids (and skipping Bourbon Street) - I just really really wanted some fried chicken - and since we had been covering their eyes when passing certain t-shirt stores, I never dreamed that a video poker machine would keep me from my chicken... :-)

Coop's

SO SAD! I've recoverd from being mad, and I'm just sad now. We wanted to try Coop's so bad this beautiful weekend in New Orleans, made special plans to be there after lunch hours, small line was there, but did not know that our children could not go in because of "gaming devices"! (The sign on the door was hidden by all the people. At least the lady in line next to us was kind enough to tell us of her experience there with her children not being allowed before we waited a long time!) I was looking forward to trying their fried chicken.... Anyway - in a town where the liquor flows freely and you can post nude pictures on your windows for all to see, I think it's a weird law to not allow children somewhere because of video poker machines. We then went to some overpriced place that wouldn't allow children on the balcony .... waaa! Thank God for Camellia Grill - it was a good finale for the day...

Xmas in New Orleans

We have eaten at Upperline the past few years for our anniversary (Dec. 21) Delicious and highly recommended. We love the Reveillon menu. Everytime I say I'm going to get something different, but I can't help getting the Sweetbreads with grits and mushroom ragout. Try it!

Friday Lunch with Girlfriends Near Quarter

Last minute help! I haven't been back to NO since Katrina. 2 girlfriends and I are going for a girls' day tomorrow. We will be near the Quarter, French Market, River area - all walking distance and would love a great spot to lunch. Mid price with fun atmosphere and DELICIOUS food (that's most important)

Any suggestions??

Thanks! La in LA

Romantic Restaurant....

We have celebrated our anniversary several times at Upperline Restaurant. Getting there was half the fun - we took the streetcar. Not sure if it is running now? Delicious food, fantastic service. We haven't been since Katrina, but I think it is open. (Try the sweetbreads and grits if they have them!)

The very BEST King Cake?

My favorite king cake doesn't come from New Orleans. Ambrosia Bakery in Baton Rouge makes a deliciously decadent ZULU King Cake - Dark chocolate icing, coconut & cream cheese filling. The best I've had. Rich, but not a sugary sweet as the ones with multicolored icing. mmmmm.... I think I'll pick one up this week! I'm fairly certain they ship these.
