Host Scott Simon talks with freelance food writer Gene Bourg about the legendary Galatoire's restaurant in New Orleans. After a century of catering to some of the city's most discerning palates, Galatoire's is at the center of a controversy. Veteran waiter Gilberto Eyzaguirre was fired in April over claims of sexual harassment. Now, more than a hundred of Mr. Eyzaguirre's most loyal customers have written letters on his behalf.
