It's amazing what atmosphere can do for food. Grab a loaf of bread and a hunk of cheese, and eat them over your kitchen sink. Now take the identical food to a sidewalk café in Paris. Suddenly, mundane becomes gourmet. So these questions bear asking: Do our readers find the food better at Bobby's because they all but transport you to New Orleans? Or is it better because it's better? Or does it even matter as long as the dining experience is a memorable one? There was a reason people mourned when Bobby's shuttered its original Loop location years ago ... and another reason for rejoice when they returned.
