My favorite restaurant is Drago's! I could eat those chargrilled oysters until i the cows come home. Maybe at some point that will change, but as for now Drago's is #1.

Well that'd be a shame. Now, where were we? Oh yeah, fave restaurants, easy question. Not. When we want the best Filet Mignon (I never had this before coming to the U.S but tried to make up for that when $$ allowed) the restaurant at La Petit Theater - I think it's called Tableau - had a steak to die for. This from a non-steak person.
Tujague's on Decatur St also has wonderful steak.

For atmosphere we like 1179 on Annunciation. It's in a very nondescript area but if you like Italian food with a little flair, it can't be beaten. I had the Osso Bucco the first time there....OMG. You even get a special little fork to get all that good marrow out, something I've never seen before. We were told it's frequented by a lot of 'mafia types'. I have no idea about that as I didn't question the patrons about their line of work but the atmosphere was such you could imagine it to be so. (That's a good thing btw).

For much simpler no-fuss dining, I like Deja Vu on Dauphine (NOT the one on Bourbon which I believe is something quite different). It's 24/7, great burgers, great happy hour - a large go-cup Margarita for $2.50? Yes please! Of course, Coops Place on Decatur is a perennial favorite, their fried chicken is my favorite but the Cajun Seafood Pasta ain't bad.

So I guess I have a few favorites. I hope some more folks contribute, popcorn is too fattening.

When I go there I like to ask natives for their recommendations, more out of curiosity than anywhere else. And all have given different opinions. But the last one ~ a cab driver ~ said Landry's because she likes the fresh hot bread. So does anyone on here have an opinion about Landry's?

Oooh oooh oooh!! Landry's! Loved it. Well, partly b/c of location - we'd always go to the one Lakeside and get an outside table. It's been awhile but I'm pretty sure I had the some of the best grilled redfish ever. I think the bread was pretty awesome too. Well worth a visit IMHO.

Landry's is part of a chain based in Houston. It has a great location, but as a restaurant it really doesn't stack up.

Deanies at Bucktown is supposed to be the better one. I went to the one in da Quarter - it did nothing for me except lighten my wallet. It wasn't bad but it was talked up so much I was expecting more.
