The Gourmand is a restaurant located on Turaxis II in the Honky Tonk District near Fort Howe. It had linen-covered dining tables, and a private wraparound balcony. During the Guild Wars, it was considered to be too expensive for the enlisted Confederate marines, and as such was favorite by officers such as Colonel Javier Vanderspool, who also enjoyed the establishment as his mistress had an apartment on the second floor of the building.
After Lisa Cassidy sabotaged the jump demonstration of Marcus Quigby, Vanderspool invited her to meet him at The Gourmand. As punishment for embarrassing him, he had two plain-clothed marines beat her.
