Another lovely dinner @ Irene's Cuisine (NOLA)

So if you were spending just one evening in NOLA as I am on my way to Florida for the Holidays, where would YOU eat?
 
I didn't want to dress up or spend too awful much, but I wanted some great creole food so I chose Irene's, a particular favorite of mine.  As usual, I passed on the standard menu and had 2 of the evening's specials:  andouille/sweet potato soup and a bone-in loin pork chop stuffed with chorizo, apples and walnuts and sauced with a port reduction, spinach and more sweet potatoes-- with pecans--on the side.  I washed it down with 2 glasses of house Riesling
 
Desert was raisinless bread pudding sharing the plate with a small order of bananas Foster and a couple of cups of Irene's great coffee.

    I'd eat at the Chef's Station seating at Emeril's.  I just love watching the chefs preparing the meals.
     
    I'd also have to book the reservations a good deal ahead of time.

    Then if my flight was cancelled I'd eat at Antoine's making a meal of Oysters Bienvelle and Rockefeller and something else I'd have to choose when given the menu.

    Turtle Soup
    Original Pascal's Barbeque Shrimp-The specialty of the house prepared in a spicy and tangy sauce.
    Bread Pudding

    If I were delayed at the airport, I'd head for Drago's in Metairie for the charbroiled oysters.  Much closer than heading all the way downtown or the FQ to eat.
