Someone else posed this question but nobody answered it, so i'll try again:
i'll be staying at a hotel on the Riverwalk, being an unabashed tourist. i get the impression that many of the Riverwalk restaurants are tourist traps, and i accept that, but i'd like to get an idea of how far Bistro Vatel is (i.e. how expensive a cab ride) and whether the dining experience there will be worth getting a cab there & back as opposed to going somewhere within walking distance. Thanks!
