The night that we ended up going to NOLA, we had originally planned on just grabbing some Chinese from a place down the road. We had been to Brennans that day for breakfast, and the amount of alcohol we has consumed that day, was bordering on ridiculous. We walked, and explored cemetaries, so a few hours before our reservation, We asked some of our fellow travellers to join us for dinner, and instead of them joining us, we joined them! They had a reservation at the Famous NOLA restaurant, owned by the famed New Orleans Chef, Emeril Lagasse.
So, we got all spiffed up and drove to NOLA! We may have taken a few detours, thanks to my stellar navigational skills (seriously, don't drink and navigate.)
We arrived and were taken up the elevator to the 3rd floor where we were seated in a small dining room. I don't know what it is about New Orleans and their multiple dining rooms!
We ordered a bottle of wine and pored over the menu. There were so many good options that it was hard to choose! Alicia knew she was getting the Duck... apparently it is to die for.
I ordered the fried green tomaties for App..
and the pork shank for my entree.
Nathan got a ribeye with fingerlings.
My tomatoes had shrimp with them, so I gave them to Nathan, and guess what kind of sauce they had on them?! My new fave, Remoulade!
You will have to forgive the camera work here, it was quite dark in the restaurant.
I asked the waiter where the washroom was, and he actually escorted me there, it was crazy.
Anyhow, I had the trio of creme brulees for dessert, and I can't for the life of me remember what the others had.... it was that good of a night :)
