    TORTIRICI'S - 441 Rue Royal (corner of Royal & St.Louis), New Orleans, Louisiana 70123 Telephone: (504) 522-4295. When friends come to town (without reservations!) and want a great dinner in the French Quarter, we always send them to Tortorici's. This place is two doors down from Brennan's and a quiet delight. They greet you at the front door with a smile, immediately treating you to a glimpse of the impeccable service to come. The maitre de is extremely courteous as is the wait staff. Neither of the two is "pushy" and both seem to know the exact moment you're ready to order. The sauces are never too thick or thin. The crab cakes with artichokes appetizer and Chicken Tortorici is fantastic.
