Might seem like a strange title for the topic but it goes like this ... trying to book for a large group of men who enjoy GOOD food and wine, a 'lively' atmosphere and want to be within a decent walking radius of the French Quarter. I've checked out a lot of the Chowhound postings, researched on TripAdvisor and other sites and have honed in on Stella!, GW Fins and either Mr. B's Bistro, Prudhommes or Muriels (need 3 in total). Discounted August as I sense it might be a tad snooty for our crowd (we'll be 16-20) and portions may be too small. Discounted Brigstens and Commanders as not being in easy walking distance and trying to avoid the 5 cab harangue. So, would welcome any comments or suggestions on choices that 'fit' a group this size, guys who will want to "chow down" and not be left hungry and aren't afraid to pay for quality. Much appreciated.
