Decadent dining spots for you and your sugar daddy

When the daily diet of Bruff, LBC and the occasional Luff is no longer cutting it, Tulane students crave a real meal at a New Orleans eatery. But straying from the meal plan diet and receiving a bill that your Splash Card won’t cover is daunting for broke college students, making a sugar daddy or mommy the perfect alternative. Here are New Orleans’ most decadent spots to dine at with your sugar parent this season.

Vincent’s Italian Cuisine: Located near campus, Vincent’s Italian Cuisine’s Uptown location is the perfect spot to hit with your sugar daddy after a long day of classes. Make sure they pick you up on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday for the “Taste of Vincent’s” six-course meal to get you the biggest bang for their buck. Feast on shrimp tagliatelle, cannelloni and tiramisu while enjoying the old-fashioned ambiance with your companion, and rest assured that when the $55 per person bill comes out, you won’t have to pay a penny.

Upperline Restaurant: With a bright yellow exterior, Upperline Restaurant is hard to miss. Right off St. Charles Ave, a mere seven minute drive from campus, a mouth-watering seven-course Creole tasting dinner awaits you and your sugar parent. At $48 each, you’re served New Orleans delicacies ranging from gumbo to savory duck etouffee. But if Creole isn’t your thing, strike up some light conversation and indulge in a main course starting at $40, including sautéed gulf fish meuniere and rack of lamb with mint madeira sauce.

Antoine’s Restaurant: Trade in your rainboots for something a little more formal, and venture to the French Quarter for a white tablecloth French-Creole dining experience with your sugar daddy at Antoine’s, one of New Orleans’ oldest eateries. Enjoy Oysters Rockefeller and if you’re feeling brave, escargot. Convince them to treat you to the Chateaubriand — a grilled beef tenderloin that, at $120 dollars, costs more than ten times anything offered in the LBC.

Galatoire’s 33 Bar & Steak: Not to be confused with its counterpart and neighbor Galatoire’s, Galatoire’s 33 Bar & Steak is the perfect destination for a smoky 16 ounce rib-eye for $48, or a $75 30 ounce T-Bone for two for your special date night. With Victorian trim and magnificent windows that overlook a renowned gallery of New Orleans’ most famous street scenes, Galatoire’s ambiance eludes class. You’ll be sure to leave Galatoire’s stuffed and your sugar parent’s wallet notably lighter after dining on the seafood, steak and chop, and poultry the menu offers.

Shaya: With endless Israeli plates, Shaya is best enjoyed with a sugar parent, so you can try everything without breaking the bank. Enjoy the bustling spot while ordering as much as possible—hummus far more delicious and expensive than any you’ve had before, tons of small plates and finally a $34 Whole Market Fish or $38 slow-cooked lamb. Feast on the complimentary, fresh baked pita bread and know that if your sugar daddy lets you bring the leftovers back to the dorm, you’ll be feasting for days.
