Godchaux Salad @ Galatoire’s
An assortment of greens with a tremendous amount of shrimp and crabmeat is one of the most popular entrees at Galatoire’s, especially in the summer or at lunch anytime. It’s named for the now-extinct Godchaux’s department store, formerly two blocks away on Canal at Baronne. The salad is the last remaining of what was once a long list of entree salads. Each of them was named after another downtown department store. So there was once a Maison Blanche salad, a Holmes salad, and a Marks-Isaacs salad.
