We're celebrating my husband's 50th by having friends meet in NO from all over the country. We're trying to find a restaurant that could seat 25 on a Sat. night (doesn't have to be a separate room), that has excellent local food (he isn't a seafood eater but most everyone else is), a walk from Dauphine hotel in FQ (Dauphine & Conti), and not too expensive. Definitely don't want fancy or snobby. Appreciate your chowhound advice!
