Commander's Palace Review
No restaurant captures New Orleans's gastronomic heritage and celebratory spirit as well as this grande dame of New Orleans fine dining. Upstairs, the Garden Room's glass walls have marvelous views of the giant oak trees on the patio below. The menu's classics include a spicy and meaty turtle soup; shrimp and tasso Henican (shrimp stuffed with ham, with pickled okra); and a wonderful pecan-crusted Gulf fish. The bread-pudding soufflé might ruin you for other bread puddings. The weekend brunch is a not-to-be-missed New Orleans tradition. Jackets are preferred at dinner. Shorts and T-shirts are forbidden, and men must wear closed-toe shoes.
