My wife and I are visiting New Orleans next week, and we'll be spending most of our time in the French Quarter. However, we do have one late dinner reservation for Commander's Palace. Since this will probably be our only excursion uptown, does anyone recommend any stops before or after the dinner, keeping in mind that we'll both be dressed up?
I imagine that we'll hit Columns Hotel for a drink either before or after. However, would Columns still be a good spot on a Thursday night if we didn't make it there until 11pm or so? Or should I concentrate on making it there before dinner?
I was also thinking about taking the streetcar down from Canal to Columns or Commander's. Would we be too out of place dressed up at night?
