Commander’s Palace in New Orleans.  From their menu right now, I would choose…

Commander’s Turtle Soup as an appetizer

Then Shrimp and Grits. 

For dessert: Bread Pudding Souffle with Whisky Sauce.

OMG I WANT TO GO NOW

@Aquaria:  Well I can’t pick just one. Now what to do I do? lol

I used to LOVE the Chianti Braised Short-ribs at Olive Garden. They came with mushroom rosotto. SOOO flippin’ good. But those jerks took it off the menu. The salad is still banging though.

Crispy Green Beans at P.F. Changs.

Jack Daniel’s Chicken and Shrimp at TGIFridays. (with garlic mashed potatoes WEEEEEEEE!)

Sirloin Marsala and Chicken Bryan (called The Johnny) at Carrabba’s. DROOL

Fresh Maine lobster anywhere that can steam it right and bring me extra butter. Love the biscuits at Red Lobster.

Filet with a loaded baked potato at Texas Roadhouse.

Starting to think I eat out too much. 🙂

@Andthepupmakes3:  If you’ve never been to Commander’s Palace, you REALLY should go.  For lunch, preferably.  It’s so nice.  And it’s relatively inexpensive for what it is.

App: I still dream about a she-crab soup I found at a restaurant called Charley’s in Hilton Head. It was my favorite thing in the whole world when I spent a summer working on the island. It’s closed now and it’s terribly, terribly sad.

Main: Filet & Seared Tuna meal at a little Japanese steakhouse back home. Salad with ginger sauce, mushroom clear soup, fried rice, sauteed veggies, shrimp sauce – it’s where it’s at.

Dessert: Cookies and Cream fondue at the Melting Pot. Pure deliciousness. There’s also a little local spot in town that made PB&J ice cream in house and I thought it would be weird, but it is legendary.

@MrsWrangler:  Take note:  Their food is best at lunch.  You need reservations, and dress is fancy.  My husband always wears a shirt and tie, and I wear a dress.  At lunch, a jacket is not required.  If you wear that, you’ll be a bit fancier than some, but just as fancy as everyone else.  They have 25 cent cocktails at lunch, too!  We usually go on a Wednesday or Thursday.  

I wish I could go tomorrow!!  It’s so good.  

Here are some pictures:

One thing (one of the only things) I miss about living in FL is First Watch breakfasts. I usually would get one of the Skillet Hashes, although there was a great pumpkin pancake special last fall.
