Hey everyone. I've been searching for a place to have a dinner for about 20-25 people in mid-July. Ideally I'd find a place near the convention center, but it's possible that we might be able to expand the area to the french quarter as well. We have a budget of $1500, but we could possibly go a tad over (but not much), so that gives us about $60pp including tax and service, and including any alcohol and room rental charges. We don't necessarily need something super upscale, but would prefer something not totally casual if possible.
I've looked into Emeril's, Calcasieu, and Rio Mar, and they're all too pricey, so I'm looking for other suggestions. Any ideas? I don't think there are any restrictions on type of food. Thanks in advance!
