grazing over big dinners in New Orleans

Hey there, we're coming down in April (over Easter) and have a dinner reservation at Cochon on Saturday, Jazz Brunch at Commander's Palace Sunday, and plan to eat lunch at Cochon Butcher on Monday...
other than that, pretty hesitant to make reservations because we never seem to be hungry at the expected hour, and prefer grazing here and there over multi-course meals. We are just 2 ladies, and we are staying Friday morning through Tuesday afternoon of Easter weekend.

If we stick to happy hours (Luke's /Domenica), or restaurants where we don't have to make reservations (we never seem to be hungry at the expected hour), will we be missing out hugely on places like Coquette and Herbsaint?

We both love really great food and don't mind paying for what's just spectacular and not-to-be-missed, problem is our appetites just don't cooperate. Here in Toronto we usually sit at the bar, and eat well, but just not a whole lot and very rarely linger over long dinners at tables.

On a weekend as big as Easter, can we do the grazing, no reservation thing, and not end up at kind of mediocre, disappointing spots?

Given the above description is brunch at Commander's a mistake? Our reservation is for 1:30 - will we miss the parade?

It is just the two of us, honestly wish we could have our dinner at Cochon with more people... just a bite of each thing would suffice and sate us.
