Every day during the month of August, we’re highlighting one restaurant from our recent ranking of the 31 Best Restaurants in New Orleans. Today’s restaurant, Commander's Palace, is #1 on our list.

A slice of New Orleans dining history — it opened in 1880 — this culinary landmark has long been collecting accolades for everything from its service, to its wine list, and its "haute Creole" cuisine. Two of its alumni, it might be noted, are Paul Prudhomme and Emeril Lagasse,but with chef Tory McPhail at the ovens for over a decade, Commander’s Palace is still going strong. Come hungry and ready for such dishes as the foie gras and candied pecan beignet with foie gras infused café au lait or satsuma and Grand Marnier lacquered quail with bacon-braised Vidalia onions.

I am not sure, who put this list together, but its missing one of the top 5, K-Pauls, Chef Paul has been an icon and helped put NOLA on the culinary Map along with the Bennans and Leah Chase. The list needs to be amended

I love Restaurants! To know more about on their success, how they did it! What's their best cuisine and to get to know the master chefs and even their secret recipe. As I am starting my passion, I keep this blog as one of my guide to great success on my first restaurant <a href="http://www.myfirstrestaurant.com/" title="http://www.myfirstrestaurant.com/">http://www.myfirstrestaurant.com/</a>

To tour all these restaurants would be a great idea.
