My wife and I got married in New Orleans last year and try to get out there every year, if not more. Even though all the talk about August and Commander's does appeal to us a bit... my wife and I really like the type of places that have high quality food but a very casual or fun atmosphere.
Jacques-Imo's immediately comes to mind, and to a lesser extent maybe a place like Dick & Jenny's. I'm wondering if you guys have any suggestions for similar restaurants given the fact that we love J-I's and D&J?
We are returning to New Orleans in a month and Dante's Kitchen, Atchafalaya, and Upperline are currently at the top of the list of restaurants we want to try... although I'm unsure if any of those have the atmosphere we're looking for.
