My husband and I are spending this weekend in new Orleans for our 10 year anniversary. We are being joined by another couple. We are looking for decently priced ($20/entree) resto choices. What do we like? Everything but formal French or Italian. We have been here many times (my husband grew up on the north shore and lived here for many years) and our friends are from Baton Rouge. So we have eaten many Cajun and creole meals, and eaten at all of the classics (commanders, Antoine's, etc.). Won't turn up our nose at something a little different. I like low down and funky but it isn't a requirement. We like a good drink but can go upscale also. Location can be varied as we have a car and know the area. Just looking for something new, or local, or a real favorite. Dinner will probably be followed by live music so it can be light.
Thanks in advance!
