It's always a treat when the Times-Picayune publishes its Fall Dining Guide, with food writer Brett Anderson's picks for top 10 restaurants in New Orleans. After which follows a heated discussion on what restaurants didn't make the cut, which shouldn't be on the list to begin with, why my current favorite (Domenica) didn't crack the top 10.

Here's Anderson's top 10, with an essay of how he makes his choices, in alphabetical, not best to worst, order:
Cochon
Commander's Palace
Emeril's
Gautreau's
Herbsaint
Lilette
Patois
Restaurant August
Ristorante del Porto
Stella!
