I am getting married in New Orleans and would like to have a casual event on the Friday night before at a place that has good traditional New Orleans fare but is not too pricey. We are on a pretty serious budget. I am looking for a place that we might have a buffet for between $30- $40 a head. I know I might be dreaming. We wanted to have a crawfish boil but couldn't quite figure that out. I have tried Acme, Gumbo Shoppe, Mulates, Mothers Next Door and several others and either no availibility or too expensive. Any thoughts on other places to try? The postings for Ralph and Kacoos have not been great but maybe I should try there....Also can't be too far from 833 Poydras, Le Pavillion hotel.
Thanks for your thoughts.
