|Commander's Palace Restaurant in the Garden District of New Orleans|
The service is amazing. Two waiters are assigned to your table. The water glass is never empty, plates arrive at the same time, and you can ask all the questions you like.
We started off with a Sazerac cocktail. (See my photos and recipe of the Sazerac here.)

The gumbo was delicious. It had okra and chicken with a smoky, spicy flavor (but not too spicy).

Commander's Palace also serves a jazz brunch.
My daughter enjoyed her meal so much that as we walked back through the Garden District to our condo, she declared this was the best meal she's ever had! (And she's eaten at restaurants in Paris, San Francisco, New York, and many other fine restaurants.)
