I'm going out of order here! Lunch on our final day was at Galatoires. I was a tad disappointed to see how casually some people were dressed. Coming from LA, I like the idea of dress codes.
We had intended to go on Friday but it was packed, as it was the Friday before Halloween! So switched plans around and went here for our last meal, instead. We were graciously brought into the restaurant and got great service from our waiter.
We got the fried soft shell crab appetizer which was simply dressed with butter but was excellent! (I miss them - used to buy them at the farmers market live when we lived in Baltimore. Just not as good when we get them LA,)
We also split the shrimp remoulade. It was fine, but couldn't forget the fantastic version we had of this at GW Finns.
I followed the waiter's suggestion and had the black drum, I think it was. Excellent! I was going to get something, a sauce, but the waiter suggested that I get instead the hollandaise. He was right there, too! I got the potatoes souffle potatoes since I'd read recommendations of them. They were pretty to look at but not impressive.
My husband's main course was a little dry for him, crabmeat Yvvone, so he got a side of cream spinach and it really improved it.
We had dessert, also. Can't remember what it was but it looks good! Waiter suggested it!
Great last meal! I console myself with thoughts of returning!
