I'm on my own for the first night (of the first weekend) of JazzFest and have an idea that I'd like to eat a nice meal sitting at a bar in a fancy restaurant (also sipping Sazerac's). What would be your recommendation? Price isn't necessarily an object, since this is vacation. Noisy tourists or an overcrowded/too-noisy bar is a no-no. Something walkable from Canal near St. Charles would be perfect.
Thanks, in advance, oh wise 'hounds!
