My brother and his wife treated us to a delicious lunch at Galatoire's in New Orleans. What a treat! The service is impeccable, the food is divine, and the atmosphere is energetic. We were seated in the downstairs dining area where the decor is reminiscent of the 1920's. The waitstaff was very pleasant and professional. We ordered a Kir Royal and a Bloody Mary to accompany the fresh bread and butter served before the meal. My boyfriend ordered the oysters for an appetizer and I ordered a small house salad. Both were delicious. For our entrees we couldn't resist ordering two crabmeat au gratin dishes. We weren't disappointed. The dishes were served piping hot. The proportion of tender crab pieces and the rich bechamel sauce was perfection. We loved every bite. Unfortunately we were too stuffed for dessert. I didn't want to leave and will certainly recommend this gem to anyone visiting the French Quarter.
