Fine dining close to the Ritz

Bayona (http://www.bayona.com/) would be my choice as well. Very walkable from the Ritz, relaxing/intimate atmosphere, knowledgeable waitstaff, & most of all delicious food. They also do lunch on Saturdays. Enjoy!

Herbsaint is excellent, but unfortunately it is closed Sundays.

Pre NOWFE (Days 4,5&6)

Yes, thanks for all your dining reports. Too bad you didn't make it to Herbsaint (another one of our favorite lunch spots). Be sure to keep it on the list & next time don't let your husband's cravings change your well thought out plans ;0)

My Pre-NOWFE Eating Report (Day 2)

Another mouthwatering report!

Bayona is our favorite place for lunch in the Quarter. My husband & I have eaten there many times & have tried a variety of dishes, & have never been disappointed. We bought Susan's new cookbook... now if only!

Have yet to try Gautreau's, but it's on the 'To Do' list.

Thanks cc. Looking forward to #3!

Joe Dons farewell to his 5 most missed restaurants post katrina RIP

Cafe Sbisa reopened late last year, but closed again (partner issues). Haven't read anything about it lately. We wanted to try it, but we weren't quick enough. Anyone have any news?

romantic restaurant for 5 year anniversary

Ditto on Cafe Amelie & Bayona. Both have beautiful settings. CA's courtyard is magical, but prefer Bayona's food. Can't go wrong with either. Congrats & enjoy!

Jacques-Imo's Cafe Spinach Salad

southportchow, Report back on Jacques-Imo's spinach salad dressing ingredients: plum vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, & sesame seeds. I didn't get the amount of ingredients, that's where the fun in the kitchen begins!

Jacques-Imo's Cafe Spinach Salad

I can't help you with the recipe, but just wanted to sing Jacques-Imo's praises & agree with you... the spinach salad is delicious! My husband & I ate at Jacques-Imo's for the first time last night & everything we ordered was excellent. Beginning with the cornbread muffins & cocktails, then your favorite spinach salad, & the entrees, BBQ shrimp & mahi-mahi, & sides of mashed potatoes, mashed sweet potatoes, & corn macque choux. Mmmmm, Mmmmm! We were too content for dessert, but I'm sure they likewise would be great.
We are planning to make a return visit within the week & will ask about the spinach salad recipe.
