Galatoire's is a high level star on the rather tawdry Bourbon Street. There is a large rectangular open room on the ground level, a short bar and smaller dining rooms on the upper level. When we arrived, a large and lively crowd filled every table, but we were seated promptly and the service was excellent.
Preston, our efficient table waiter, gave good advice on food and wine. And, he was also knowledgable on the recent oil spill, so we shared heated reviews of BP and EPA.
The menu was extensive and it took a while to make our selections. We followed a good rule: when in doubt, a good burgundy, something with bacon, and hot sauce on the side is a fine way to go.

C'est si bon.
