Wednesday - Thursday
Dine with Five New Friends™


Your Construction CPM Conference features a unique means to extend networking and appreciation of our host locales. New Orleans is noted for many fine restaurants. But getting reservations on short notice (especially as we approach Super Bowl Sunday) may be difficult. Be seated with your Five New Friends™ at a restaurant of your choice - separate checks please. Match-making by Kim is based upon your stated industries and preferences on the registration page to continue networking in a leisurely manner.

Our restaurant selection features:

Antoine's - Antoines set the standard that made New Orleans one of the greatest dining centers in the world. It is the birthplace of Oysters Rockefeller and Pommes de Terres Souffles. Try both! Jackets preferred but not required $$$$ - www.antoines.com

Arnaud's - Classic French and Creole cuisine since 1918! Home of Shrimp Remoulade. Dressy, jackets suggested. $$$ - www.arnaudsrestaurant.com

Galatoire's - Steeped in tradition and simple elegance. Legendary food and service. Try oysters en brochette or crabmeat Yvonne. Better yet, just ask your waiter for suggestions. Dressy; jackets REQUIRED. $$$ - www.galatoires.com

Mr. B's Bistro - Quintessential New Orleans meals served flawlessly. Best known for Barbequed Shrimp and Gumbo Ya-Ya. Excellent bar. Try traditional New Orleans drinks – Sazerac, Pimms Cup, or Brandy Milk Punch. $$$ - www.mrbsbistro.com
