I've eaten at Muriel's-and it was outstanding. Haven't eaten at Tableau-yet.
Even tho Tableau has been getting great reviews I like to give a place a number of months shakedown...and Muriels you can go out on the balcony with drinks, see the seance' room, the
haunted table, and very good food..Chef Gus Martin worked a number of years as chef for a number
of the Brennan properties...at this point I'd go with Muriels
I love Muriel's too; outstanding service and food. I would highly recommend them. I have not eaten at Tableau so I can't give you an opinion on them.
the Flok will be zip-lining to Tableau this October (sans bcla) :(
In the meantime, you CANNOT go wrong at Muriel's!!!!
100% agree with CajunYank although I haven't eaten at either place yet (both are on The List though, but Tableau's brunch is what is calling me)
My choice would be Muriels but The Pelican Club is outstanding too and they are offering an incredible summer menu. To check it out go to www.nomenu.com
okay guys...after a few e-mails, I have to say--the zip-line thing was a joke! :) No, we WON'T be zip lining over Jackson Square! (only if bcla comes! LOL!)
Actually, The Pelican Club was another I had thought about.
And given it'll be Halloween weekend, it'd be fun to go the haunted restaurant route with Muriel's.
Thanks all for your input.
Oh dear, Herm. Guess you're all safe from the zip-lining excursion.
