Solo female diner needs suggestions and encouragement

I will be in NOLA March 7-9. I have been before for weekends on my own, but this time I’d like to try some more high end places to eat. My last trip I had a delicious brunch at the bar at the Palace Café. I felt comfortable at the bar and want to push myself to do it more.

Now first of all, I cannot eat the multi course meals I read about on CH. I would explode. Years ago a date took me out to a multi course meal (pre courses, palette cleansers, etc.), and even though it was delicious, and the portions were not big, it was too much food for me. I was up more than half the night with heartburn. On the other hand, I could nibble all day. My idea was to wander around (opportunity to walk off calories) and have a drink and appetizer at various places. I have many ideas of where to go, and I’m sure I’ll just make a dent in the list. I’d love to hear from CH as to their favorite apps and/or cocktails at these places, which restaurants are more conducive to this, which are not, etc. Also, which of these places has a knockout dessert that I might stop in for instead of an appetizer.

My list (in no particular order)

Also, since I really enjoyed that brunch last time, I’d appreciate suggestions of nice places to have brunch at the bar on Sunday. I enjoyed the Palace Café, but would like to try something different. Can I get brunch at the bar at the Marigny Brasserie? Their Jazz brunch sounds great. What about Mr. B’s?

Since my time is limited, other than possibly taking a walking tour of the garden district on Saturday afternoon, my plan is stick to the fq, cbd, and Frenchman St, so I can walk everywhere and not waste time traveling.
