Dinner for 30th Anniversary

Hi all,

I was hoping for some suggestions. My husband and I will be celebrating our 30th Anniversary in New Orleans. We're going to be staying in the French Quarter for just under a week. Any suggestions for restaurants or places to visit? We love food, music & keeping active.

Thanks for all of your help!

Hm-m, we have celebrated many anniversaries and then wife’s birthdays, in New Orleans.

Some of our favorites have been:

Galatoire’s

Brennan’s

Grill Room

Commander’s Palace

All are fine-dining, so at the upper end of service, cost and food.

Enjoy,

Hunt

PS - when on my laptop, I will share my “dining short-list,” with links to some recent reviews.

Here is my "short-list," along with links to many of my Reviews. Some Reviews are missing, but then I have added a few new ones, and nearly all have Photos, as well.

Many are in the French Quarter, but some are in the near-by CBD. The rest are scattered around New Orleans, but most are on, or near, the public transportation lines, such as the Streetcars.

[Note: Has closed, and the space is being filled with a new restaurant, but have not visited yet]

Bon Ton Cafe - http://thebontoncafe.com/

For breakfasts, we are more into a sit-down meal, rather than a "grab-n-go."

Here are my favorites, but note that many are a bit on the "up-scale" side of the spectrum:

Grill Room at Windsor Court: http://www.grillroomneworleans.com/

Camellia Grill (have not been to the FQ location, but love the one in River Bend on Carrollton Ave): https:/…

Brennan's: http://www.brennansneworleans.com/

On a recent trip, we enjoyed our meal at Restaurant R’Evolution (though there were a few rough spots, but mainly in service) - https://www.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Revie…

We also had a great Brunch at Red Gravy, however due to being a holiday, the menu was limited. I see it recommended highly for Breakfast, and based on that Brunch, would not hesitate: http://redgravycafe.com/

Enjoy,

Hunt
