Chow at Music Venues

lintsao | Mar 11, 2004 11:37 AM

We’ll be heading to New Orleans next week to feast on music as well as oysters. Food at music venues is sometimes good but more often just adequate, and most of the places on my list only serve beverages as far as I can tell.

And I’m not actually a fan of things like jazz brunch because I think eating and talking interfere with listening, and music interferes with talking so you wind up silently chowing but not being able to listen that well.

HOWEVAH....the prospect of eating, music and dancing is different. You eat, you dance, that’s okay. So there are a few places I’m wondering about.

Donna’s Bar & Grill – has barbecue chicken and red beans & rice between sets on Mondays. Has anyone had it?
The Funky Butt – has a full menu. Is it worth going there for food or had I best eat elsewhere? (Does it have a dance floor?)
Snug Harbor – Not a place I’m looking to dance but I seem to remember you can eat there before a show. Is it chow-worthy?
Seaport Cafe – don’t know anything about it except it seems to be a restaurant (?). Would like to catch Coco Robicheaux either there or the Apple Barrel. Any comments?

Finally the list of places that I figure do not serve any food are Tipitina’s, d.b.a., Rock ‘n’ Bowl, Maple Leaf, Blue Nile, Cafe Brasil & Carrollton Station. Is that correct?

Thank you!
