I just called to make my birthday dinner reservation with Commander's and they are unfortunately all booked up the evening of my birthday - May 25. They told me that typically a month ahead is plenty of time, but they have several big events that night. Now I kind of feel like I'm back at square one. I could do brunch the next day instead but there is just something to me about having my 30th birthday dinner ON my 30th birthday.
I couldn't do brunch earlier that day either because our plane doesn't arrive until 10:15am and they stop serving at 12:30pm on Saturdays so that is really cutting it too close.
Does anyone have any other suggestions along the same lines for a nice birthday dinner that evening? I also considered the chef's table (bar) at NOLA's. I may still fall back on that, but want to consider options.
