I'm planning to go with two friends to Galatoire's for lunch on Friday nearing the end of October. From what i've read it's a safe bet to show up at 10am to get a seat in the downstairs bistro. If by chance we're late or just unlucky and can't get a table there do any of you have any good alternative locations for a good lunch? I was thinking Mr. B's since I think it's close by but is the vibe as lively as Galatoires for lunch?
Of course, any help would be much appreciated!
