I had planned to bring my sweetie to NOLA to celebrate his 50th birthday--he wanted his big birthday dinner to be at Galatoire's. Booked a room at the Meridien,
made dinner reservations, even requested his special waiter. Due to a family emergency, he will be unable to make it. I decided I'm coming by myself anyway, since I adore NOLA and I've already paid for the room and the airfare. I have two questions.
1. Any feelings or comments about safety at night for a woman alone in the Quarter, particularly walking back to the hotel, which is on Canal?
2. Any restaurants where parties of one are made to feel unwelcome?
Thanks for any guidance!
