NYC-hounder coming down for my first Jazzfest! And first time back to Nola in many years. We'll actually have four dinners and one lunch (as we are coming a couple days early for the first weekend.) We want to alternate expensive with more moderate---I should also add that we really want to focus on cajun/creole, hence why we are not considering more continental or fusion places like Stella! or August etc.
My list so far. I already have all the reservations except for the ??? Friday night
Couchon dinner Wed--moderate
Casamento's lunch Thur (Can't wait to get back there--my fave spot in Nola!)
Commander's Palace dinner thurs --expensive
Friday is the open dinner need something moderate
Brigsten's dinner Sat night -- expensive
So suggestion's for Friday? I was thinking maybe Dick and Jenny's but the no reservations thing concerns me a bit during Jazzfest...I know hubby doesn't deal well with waiting around a long time when he's hungry. Another thought was Jacque Imo's but same problem there with no res..also don't see much mention of this place on the boards anymore. Would be nice maybe to dine somewhere in the FQ as opposed to another cab ride, as well....
