I have eaten all over the world and beyond doubt, New Orleans always had the best Chefs and restaurants that I ever had occasion to dine in.
Service in a Fine Dining restaurant is unbeatable.
Believe it to be true, even a hole in the wall has to be good to great or it would not pass the test of time.
New Orleans as you like it
In my opinion, New Orleans began to change after the building of the Super Dome.
A different class of people became the tourists who dressed down for everything. And more of the transients lost respect for dress and culture. And then the Orleanians joined the colorless multitude.
Walking, strolling, or cruising the Quarter was such a delight. Afternoon break away from the office was most enchanting and delightful to visit the quaint shops and venues of the Quarter.
Eventually, Bourbon Street became "T-Shirt Alley" with all its common vulgarisms.
