Galatoire's: Favorite Old World New Orleans Restaurant
Galatoire's is New Orleans, especially on a Friday afternoon when the locals come for lunch and stay through the afternoon drinking Champagne. Anything Creole can be excellent at Galatoire's from fried foods, to fish papilotte to their chops. Diners can pick and choose from a selection of sauces for their food. Bernaise on your steak...no problem. They are also more than willing to split orders, so if you can't decide between their crabmeat maison or the remoulade, just ask them to bring both. There's always a line, so be patient. No shorts are allowed, ever. We have had much better food when we stick to the downstairs dining room. Upstairs food hasn't been up to the usual standard.
Favorite Dish: Crabmeat maison is so good it makes you cry.
Oyster brochette has perfectly fried oysters and bacon.
Soft shell crabs can be delicious here.

Galatoire's: Galatoire's: Worth the Splurge
When money is no object, or for a special occasion, this is my favorite restaurant in New Orleans. Jackets are required for the gentlemen. The downstairs dining room manages to be festive and noisy as well as elegant. No reservations are taken - every and all must wait in line downstairs (although some of the hoity toity hire people to do this for them). The walls are mirrored, the waiters tuxedoed, and the food - sublime!
Be warned - the menu is a la carte, so if you are used to getting a vegetable with your entree, you will have to order one separately. This can get costly, hence the first sentence...
Favorite Dish: My favorite meal would be as follows:
Appetizer: Oysters en Brochette
Soup: Turtle Soup
Entree: Chicken Bonne-Femme - chicken breast wrapped in bacon and topped with caramelized onion, garlic and ham - scrumptious!
Vegetable: Broiled Tomatoes
Dessert: Chocolate-Pecan Pie - sheer heaven on a plate, manages to NOT be overly sweet
