Bistreaux in the Maison Dupuy never disappoints. Their two-course lunch includes options like Mushroom Tartine and Crab Ravioli. For dinner, you can opt for a Heirloom Tomato Salad, Grilled Gulf Fish and Grand Marnier Crème Brûlée. Deeeeeelicious!
This member of the Commander's Palace Family is offering lunch choices during Restaurant Week such as a Shrimp & Tasso Corndog appetizer and a “Smashed” Pork Belly PoBoy. For dinner or brunch, dive into the Blue Crab & Sweet Corn Veloute, the Veal Barbacoa Tamale, and the White Chocolate Biscuit Pudding. Aren't you glad you're in New Orleans, y'all?
Commander's in the Garden District is celebrating Restaurant Week with a truly inspired menu. We recommend starting with their classic Turtle Soup and following it up with “Creole Italian” Cochon de Lait for lunch. For dinner, we'd go for the BBQ’D Louisiana Blue Crab Bisque, the Crispy Striped Bass, and Commander’s Bread Pudding Soufflé. The brunch choices are amazing as well.
This lovely restaurant in the French Quarter is offering choices like Grilled Louisiana Crawfish Cake, a Ten-Ounce New York Strip Steak and a Blueberry Cheesecake Martini. The food is so good, it'll make you want to second line.
Fogo's Restaurant Week dinner menu starts with the Market Table & Feijoada Bar (fresh salads, exotic vegetables, Fogo® feijoada, seasonal soup, and more). For a second course, you get continuous Tableside Service of Fire-Roasted Meats and Brazilian Side Dishes such as warm pão de queijo (cheese bread), crispy polenta, mashed potatoes and caramelized bananas. For dessert, options include Key Lime Pie. We get happy just thinking about it.
Tennessee Williams loved Galatoire's – you will, too. First course choices include Fried Oyster Rockefeller. Entree options include Sautéed Redfish Amandine. And how about a Lemon Tartlet with Whipped Cream, Mango Sauce for dessert? It's a refreshing way to end a fabulous meal on Bourbon Street.
How does Cucumber Gazpacho, Sautéed Drum Amandine with Creamed Spinached and Chocolate Crème Brûlée with Brandied Cherries sound for lunch? Or maybe you prefer dinner options like Corn Risotto, Pave of Aged Strip Loin and Sweet Potato Hot Pie with Ice Cream? You can't go wrong, you know. Not at this place.
Hard Rock Cafe in the French Quarter is all about Restaurant Week. For lunch or dinner, you can start with a cup of Hard Rock Gumbo, then dig into their Original Legendary® Burger with Seasoned Fries. For dessert, nothing beats their Mini Brownie Sundae.
Paul Prudomme's legendary restaurant has an unbelievable Restaurant Week menu. Start with Fried Green Tomatoes and follow it up with Pan-Fried Flounder with Herbal Brie Cream and Custard Marie.
Restaurant Week is a great time to try BBQ Shrimp at the place where it was invented – Pascale's Manale. Lunch options include Shrimp Savare, Ravioli Alfredo and Bread Pudding. For dinner, go with with Fried Crab Claws, the BBQ Shrimp and the Cup Custard. Ah, heaven.
This charming restaurant in the French Quarter is one of our favorites. Their Restaurant Week Dinner menu includes Korean 24-Hour Cooked Boneless Baby Back Ribs, a 1 lb. Whole Maine Lobster and Fried Jumbo Shrimp, and Chocolate Decadence Cake.
If a spectacular view of the live oaks in City Park isn't enough, lunch choices at Ralph's include the Chef’s Soup of the Day and Grilled Drum with charred pineapple & red onion salsa. For dinner, we think we're going to order the Turtle Soup, the Grilled Shrimp Curry and the Praline Bread Pudding. Num.
If you haven't been to SoBou yet, Restauran Week is the perfect opportunity. At lunchtime, start with the Hemingway Daiquiri Watermelon Gazpacho Popsicle. Follow it up with the the Cochon de Lait Cuban Sandwich. For dinner, we recommend Miss Laura’s seasonal punch of the day, Crispy Chicken on the Bone, and the Buffalo Trace Bourbon Braised Short Rib. For dessert, the White Chocolate Coma Bar is calling – loudly!
Why do we love Tommy's? This is why. During Restaurant Week they're offering choices like Turtle Soup, Veal Marsala and Pecan Praline Bread Pudding. What's not to love?
Tujague's, the city's second oldest eaterie, will not be out-done. First course choices include Crawfish & Goat Cheese Crepes. For an entree, we'd have a hard time passing up the Roast Duckling Madison served with parslied Brabant potatoes, braised Swiss chard & raspberry fig gastrique. And for dessert, Peach Melba served with toasted almonds, vanilla bean ice cream & raspberry sauce sounds pretty good.
