Galatoire's Restaurant in New Orleans is more than just a place to eat. It's a place to see and be seen! I have never dined there without starting with a plate of fried eggplant. It's legendary! Serve with powdered sugar or garlic aioli.


  1. Peel eggplant and cut into sticks.
  2. Salt and drain on paper towels for 15-30 minutes.
  3. Rinse and pat dry.
  4. Make a batter of milk, egg, salt and pepper.
  5. Dip eggplant sticks in batter, roll in flour and deep fry until golden.
