Howard’s New Orleans family on his mother’s side has gone to Galatoire’s Restaurant for generations. His great great uncle walked there daily from his store on Canal Street for lunch. Apparently he ordered the same salad every time, and Galatoire’s named it on the menu as the “Godchaux salad.” Keeping the tradition, our family spent an epic evening eating and drinking and hanging out there together for hours. Three of us wore hats to dinner and you can see them hanging on the pegs above the diners. The morning after, when I awoke, I was struck by the sunlight streaming through our Antonine Street place.
