Classic Historic. An 1880 city landmark deep in the beautiful Garden District, this sophisticated spot is the place for haute Creole cuisine. The menu features American and Creole preparations of seafood, veal and filet mignon as well as such decadent desserts as bread pudding souffle. At lunchtime, the 25-cent martinis merit a look. When making reservations, guests should request the downstairs dining room, as it has a more formal feeling for special occasions.
