Andrea's, Metairie.
Chef Andrea Apuzzo was the executive chef at the Royal Orleans Hotel
before he opened Andrea's in New Orleans' western suburb of Metairie, and
it quickly became one of the city's finest. His specialty is Northern
Italian cuisine, but a lot of it is in the vein of Creole-Italian, a
delightful combination bestowed on New Orleans by its many Italian
immigrants and their descendants. Superb.

Bayona, French Quarter.
One of the city's top dining experiences, Bayona is well-beloved by savvy New Orleanians,
offering elegant eclectic contemporary cuisine with Asian and
Mediterranean flavors in a two century-old French Quarter Creole cottage;
you may dine indoors where it's dark, quiet and intimate,
or out in the courtyard for a charming, romantic meal you won't soon forget --
definitely bring your sweetie here. The wine selection is extensive,
and the wait staff is extremely helpful in assisting
you in choosing the right wine for your meal.
Desserts are varied and exciting.
After a quiet, romantic evening at Bayona, sampling some of the best
food our city has to offer, you may well applaud next time you pass by.

NOLA, French Quarter.
Emeril Lagasse's newest, less pricey, more informal French Quarter
restaurant is a companion to Emeril's, his shining star, and might be a
bit more accessible to a diner who wants to savor Emeril's cooking for a
little less money. Somewhat less extensive menu, but the food is
still fabulous. A bit more geared toward locals. Definitely worth a

Broussard's, French Quarter.
Owned by Chef Gunter Preuss, formerly of Versailles, and under the
direction of Executive Chef Harvey Loumiet, Broussard's has come a long
way since its opening 75 years ago, completely remade by Preuss into one
of the city's finest and most elegant French-Creole-Acadian restaurants.
Dine in one of three beautifully accommodated dining rooms, or in the
courtyard patio (Broussard's also offers a piano lounge with live
entertainment on Friday and Saturday evenings.) As certain other grand
old Creole restaurants have withered in quality, the renaissance of
Broussard's is a best bet for classic Creole dining in the Quarter.

Dooky Chase, Tremé.
Haute Creole from Chef Leah Chase, with down-home cooking in very
elegant settings. Don't miss the gumbo. Security parking provided.

Galatoire's, French Quarter.
Few concessions to the modern age have been made here in the last 75
years, but it annoys me that Galatoire's now allows gentlemen to dine for
lunch without a jacket. (I always had to wear one!) At
least reservations are still not accepted, for a place that's worth
waiting in line for (although they do now accept credit cards, and with
the reopening of the second floor the long lines have mostly diminished).
One of the great Creole establishments, Galatoire's
is noisy and wonderful, where you'll be pampered by your waiter and where
the recipes haven't changed in years (there's no chef here, only line
cooks who prepare their dishes from decades-old recipes). An essential
New Orleanian dining experience.
