sorry not to report
nola was fantastic, my favorite meal in town. duck confit pizza, fried chicken with mashed sweet potatos and ham gravy, some not very memorable dessert. sezerac and a rye based cocktail, again not that memorable. the chicken and the gravy were fantastic
breakfast at mothers, twice. had the black ham once, it wasn't as good as its been before, it was cold. what they told me was that it is cold in the early morning (I was there at 7 am) and it heats up over the course of the morning. next day had the debris.
lunch at borubon house, good gumbo, okay chicken. somebody at my office had pre-ordered for me (I had a huge group) so it wasn't special. very good manhatton
dinner at delmonicos, twice. first time service sucked (group of 20 with garanteed tip) second time service was great. food was very good both times, gumbo and pork loin first night, gumbo and cheese plate second night
lunch at comanders palace. yes, I know, I know, but I was taking out an old school guy. food was great, service was exceptional. gumbo (should have had the turtle soup but the gumbo of the day sounded really good) and suckling pig, which was great. mint julip,
