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.

Just one evening?? Then it's Pascals Manele for me. Nothing fancy, just good eats.
Combination Pan Roast-Oysters and crabmeat chopped in a blend of shallots and parsley seasonings.
Turtle Soup
Original Pascal's Barbeque Shrimp-The specialty of the house prepared in a spicy and tangy sauce.
Bread Pudding
OOOPS! Almost forgot---TONS of French Bread for Sopping up!

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.
