Hello everyone,

My boyfriend turns 40 this month and we are celebrating it in New Orleans. I would like to take him to an expensive restaurant and I would like some suggestions. Thanks in advance.

Why does it have to be expensive? There are wonderful eateries in the city that are very reasonable. I like Copeland's uptown on Magazine and there's another fancy one where you need reservations uptown but I forgot the name. I'd take O'Henry's any day though. Love their seafood.

I'm new here, but it seems like there aren't a lot of "fancy" restaurants here. Find one in the Quarter with good reviews and make a reservation for a balcony table if you're going for "romantic".

Not sure how they are these days but the old stand-bys were Commander's Palace, Brennan's, The Palace Cafe, and Galatoire's. They all have different atmospheres so check them out online. Galatoir's is the closest to a classic French restaurant but some people don't like the atmosphere.

I've never eaten there but a friend of mine who goes to NOLA every year is partial to Upperline, which is just off St. Charles on Upperline St.

All of Emeril's restaurants are noted to be good ones, too.

At the top of your list should be the three most venerable French-Creole restaurants in the Quarter: Galatoire's, Antoine's, and Arnaud's. A full-course dinner at these bastions of old New Orleans will be memorable if for nothing but their expensiveness.

You can't go wrong with any of the Brennan's restaurants, or any of Emeril's. I think Antoine's is the oldest working restaurant in America, so that in itself makes it an intriguing prospect.

A big thank you to all who answered. A co-worker of mine, who has been to New Orleans during the Jazz Festival, which is the time we will be there, suggested Brightsen's. And yes, pointykitty, I'm going for the romantic thing.
