At this world famous New Orleans eatery, reservations are not taken, and some people are willing to go to extreme measures to get their turtle soup fix. Some of the more wealthy of the city have started to pay homeless people to wait in the line for them.
“I know some people who have stood out there for 18 hours before—it’s crazy. It it a Rolling Stones concert? No, it’s for a table at Galatoire’s.” commented New Orleans native Nancy Mellon.
The restaurant has loosened it’s “No Reservations” policy in 1999 when it started taking reservations for the upstairs dining room. The same food is served there, but the ambience is perhaps second-rate.
Have you had a chance to try Galotoire’s turtle soup?
