There are a bunch of New Orleans restaurants where you can walk in and feel like you’re in another time period. Brigtsen’s is one of them, and they also have both some old-school Creole dishes and a Victorian cottage vibe. That means you’ll see things like veal sweetbreads, red snapper amandine, pan-roasted pork chops with debris gravy, and broiled Gulf fish with lemon crab sauce. Make a reservation for an anniversary dinner where you’ll hear the knowledgeable waiters talk extensively about what makes Gulf fish delicious.
