Reveillon in NOLA (Christmas Eve)

Jump to last reply

DH & I are going on a cruise at Christmastime. The cruise departs from New Orleans on Christmas Day & returns on Jan 1st. We are arriving in NOLA on the 24th and will spend Jan 1st in the city before departing on the 2nd. We are in our mid-40's and have been to NOLA before - we honeymooned there several years ago.

We would like to go out to dinner on Christmas Eve, preferably to a restaurant that is celebrating "Reveillon." Our first choice was Bayona, but they will be closed (I already called to make reservations & was told they would be closed on Xmas Eve).

The hostess at Bayona recommended The Bombay Club as a good alternative. I am attracted to this place for two reasons: They will have an appetizer of sweetbreads (I can never find these in a resto, so I am pretty excited that they're on the menu), and they will have live jazz (althought I am concerned that the music will be a little too loud...it was mentioned on TripAdvisor.com.

The Commander's Palace is also an attractive alternative. We had lunch there on our honeymoon and I'd like to return. They have not posted their menu yet for Reveillon - the hostess said they would post it a couple of days before Xmas. They don't seem to serve sweetbreads on their regular menu - so who knows what they'll have for Xmas Eve.

I have made three reservations (all can be changed/cancelled):
The Bombay Club & Commander's Palace for Xmas Eve
Commander's Palace for Sunday jazz brunch on Jan 1st.

Do any of you have experience with The Bombay Club and/or Reveillon in NOLA? I am not sure which place to choose for these two meals.

Thank you!!
