Galatoire’s was one of the first restaurants to sign on for the modern Reveillon. The menu it serves today is much simpler than most, a time machine back twenty-five years. It shows the elegant simplicity of Galatoire’s food. Even during the holidays, the idea of trying an experimental dish at Galatoire’s plays to its weakness. One thing’s certain: the restaurant will be busy through the whole Reveillon duration, and all the people there on a given night coalesce into a jolly party. The affordable price is a gift from Santa Claus.
