When you first go down Bourbon St., the seedy part has a strange area to it. You will fine many ladies and men dressed very nice waiting in line to get into a dumpy looking place call Galatoire's. Do not be fooled by the surroundings. This is one of the best restaurants in New Orleans. The food is Haute Creole and it is delicious. The decor is very Parisian like, with the mirrors and the old lamp fixtures. I think this is a popular restaurant because the menu hasn't changed in 75 years. Why change?, it's great. As I recall, however, they do not take reservations. That is why there is a long line outside trying to get in.
