My brother, who is joining us for a few days, loves hole in the walls like Franky and Johnny's (we could go back there again) but we also need one that my 93 year old Mom will like too. We need one that we can either get a reservation to, which is not likely, or that does not have a huge line on Dec 23 around 6:30 or 7:00. Long lines are always a good sign, but my mom hates to wait. Any ideas? Something in the French quarter or nearby would be ideal, but we have access to a car so game for anywhere. Noise is not a plus, but then that is what most hole in the walls have. Thinking Coop's or we could do something totally different, just not fine dining as we are going to Cuvee the next night. Any thoughts from any of you about must eats at those we have chosen would be really helpful. I will post our reviews upon returning. I feel fatter already.

Not to fear that we have missed many great choices as in April we will eat at Stella's, Wolf's, Gautreau's, Herbsaint (again), Cochon (again) and many more.
