Windsor Court Grill Room
The Grill Room is the sole survivor of a golden era for deluxe, grand restaurants in the mid-1980s. Except for a short slack period before and after Katrina, it has kept its standards high. For the past couple of years, its Reveillon menu has been excellent, even with a somewhat limited menu. Chef Daniel Causgrove, who took over the Grill Room’s kitchen during the past couple of yeara, has fulfilled the two main requirements of the Reveillon: the menu emits a faint jingling of holiday bells, and the $60 price is an attractive price for this lovely restaurant.
