America's Best Tables Slideshow

Slide 1 of 10
Commander’s Palace (New Orleans)

You can’t really go wrong choosing a table from one of Commander’s Palace’s multiple rooms. You can count yourself lucky, however, to get a reservation at the chef’s table. Located directly in the kitchen, proprietor Ti Martin comments, “It’s like the difference between being in a swimming pool and looking at a swimming pool.” It takes at least a year to secure a reservation at this table for four. The Wine Table is another compelling option, though Ti cautions that eating in the wine cellar is “not the place to wear your sundress.”
