The person who is probably Mr./Mrs. Right has just agreed to go on a date. Panic. Where? You want a spot that has some character, that may be a little unexpected. You both like wine, but you're not fussy about it. You prefer something comfortable, something cozy, the kind of location where you may see friends but won't be on display, either. You want just the right spot that will be a fond memory if, in 10 years, you're sharing an anniversary. The pressure! Relax and head to Louisianne's.

When you step downstairs at this Cajun restaurant, all worries dissipate. You're going to have a grand time. There's good food laden with butter. There's a guy tickling the ivories. The wine list features so many relatively inexpensive good choices that you can't go wrong. And hey, you both have garlic breath so why not a kiss? Bonne chance!
