My wife and I will be visiting 10/26-10/28 for the Saints game (WHO DAT!) We’ll be in town Saturday about 5:00pm and probably won’t be in the mood to dress up for Galatoire’s. We’re staying at the Sheraton and are looking for a spot within walking distance or a short cab ride (don’t want to spend more than $10-$15 one way). I’m adventurous when it comes to food and will eat about anything, but my wife is more simple, she sticks to steak , grilled fish, or soft shell crab wherever we go. We’ve never tried Irene’s, but is it more Italian than Creole? When in New Orleans, I’m looking for food with a Creole flair.
We’re dining out Sat night, Sun breakfast (early enough to get to the Superdome about 10AM), and Sun night. For dinners, our budget is about $180 including a few drinks. Any recommendations are greatly appreciated.
A few I’m considering:
