Antoine's Restaurant in NOLA French Quarters
The food was marvelous at Antoine's. I had Shrimp soup and Shrimp Creole and Chocolate Mousse for dessert. The restaurant was opened in 1840 but not at this location, just one block from here. It is like eating with the ghosts of the rich and famous. Pope John II, FDR, JFK, General Patton, Duke and Duchess of Windsor, and many actors and actresses.
The best part of course is the meal but they also give you an autographed menu from the Chef and other odds and ends. It is a very classy place.
