My husband and I will be in New Orleans for a few days shortly. We are going to have a good meal at Herbsaint, Brigsten's, August, or Stella's. BUT, we are going to meet some friends for a good, cozy meal (they all live in the area and my husband's from the area and cooks better than most of the Creole restaurants there, so we don't really need authentic Creole ). Our friends are on a bit of a budget. Anywhere good in the French Quarter area (or adjacent) that's in a lesser price range than those I mentioned? We haven't seen our friends for a while, so a loud party atmosphere is not what we're looking for. Cozy and budget-conscious... anyone??? anyone???
