We're meeting a couple of our friends and their families for Jazz Fest weekend--we're staying in the Garden District and we need some dinner help for Thursday night. There will be 10 of us, including 4 kids from age 7 up. Does anyone know a good casual place in the Garden District (or not too far of a drive from there) that could accommodate a party of 10 without reservations? We can eat early if that would help.
It doesn't have to be Louisiana food, but that would be great--just some place with some New Orleans flavor.
If that doesn't work, how about ideas for take-out in the same Garden District zone--we like to hang out and eat by the hotel pool.
