For a little romance, reserve a table at Restaurant August, the flagship of chef John Besh’s nine-restaurant empire. This converted 19th-century tobacco warehouse, with its flickering candles and warm, soft shades, earns a nod for most aristocratic dining room in New Orleans, but somehow manages to be both intimate and lively. Delicious meals take you to another level of gastronomic perception.

The signature speckled trout Pontchartrain is layered with lump crabmeat, wild mushrooms and hollandaise. The five-course, two-hour tasting menu ($97 per person, with wine pairings $147) makes local foodies weep. There’s also a prix-fixe lunch ($20.15) with various options. Solo diners do just fine at the easygoing but professional bar.
