Emeril bought that a few years back. It's still open.

Delmonico

There are so many "Great restaurants" in NO that is becomes a question of what do you want to eat and how much do you want to pay. The food at a $10 restaurant will be as good as a $50 restaurant.

I already saw someone mention Jacques Imo's. We're leaving for NOLA in a couple days. So far this are our restaurant plans. Let me know how we did:

Lola's
Dickie Brennan's
Dominique's

Maybe Jacques Imo's.

I highly recommend Olivier's (where we went tonight). Fantastic little restaurant. The duck and the chicken were fantastic.

Sounds like you'll be pleased with the food.

One more idea: for lunch try one of the little sandwich shops like Serio's or FredRick's on St. Charles a couple blocks from Canal or P&G on Baronne about 4 blocks from Canal. P&G has great muffelattas and they all have good seafood and other po-boys under $10. Everybody will tell you Central Grocery for Muffs but I think P&G is better. Also, Mother's is a popular tourist trap where it's overpriced but they have a good roast beef sandwich called the "debris".

For a fancier lunch but still well within budget (about $15 up to $20 entrees) try either Luke or Herbsaint, both also on St. Charles. I've never been disappointed with either of them.

Yeah, I've heard good things about Luke and Herbsaint.

We've gone to Dominique's and Olivier's so far, which were both great. We're going to NOLA tonight, which I'm very excited for.

Commander's is good, but a bit overrated. I went to Emeril's (not Delmonico or NOLA, but the one in the CBD) and Commander's on consecutive nights and Emeril's was a vastly superior meal in service (4 people eating, five waiters simultaneously placed our food on the table) and in quality of food.

But neither are the restaurants I will HAVE to go to when I return to NOLA (lived in NOLA from August of 2000-December of 2003), those will be Lebanon's, a cheap Middle Eastern place with incredible food that may or may not be in business. And Irene's, which is the best Italian food I've ever had outside of Italy...and this is coming from someone who lived in Italy for a summer.

IRENE'S is the best food NOLA has to offer. Just get there by 5pm as they do not take reservations and you WILL wait 2+ hours for a table otherwise...but even then, it's worth the wait, the food is that good.

Just got home, and overall enjoyed my time in NOLA (although I didnt like the rest of the state outside of NOLA). Food was absolutely incredible. The dinner at Emeril's NOLA was possibly the greatest dinner of my life, and I'm very well traveled. Dickie Brennan's was very good, but pretty much what you'd expect from a steakhouse anywhere.
