Personally, last time I was in the Big Easy, I hit Upperline, Dick & Jenny's, Uglesitch (sp? - alas), Mother's - all of which were great and based on recommendations from you chowhounds. Since that turned out so well, I thought I'd try the same route and ask your advice.
A bunch of us ladies from the East Coast (NYC, DC) are coming to N'Awlins for a bachelorette weekend. We are hoping to make dinner reservations for a Saturday, probably about 8 - 10 of us.
Would you please help?
1) Within walking distance of the French Quarter
2) Cuisine - cajun/creole with good wine list or cocktails
3) Not super formal environment - it doesn't necessarily have to be a fun/lively atmosphere, can be gracious and mellow
4) Good food
5) Good food
6) Good food
I thought Dick & Jenny's was really nice and would be perfect for the dinner, but it's rather far, and I'd prefer not to have to find transportation for eight people.
Appreciate all of your suggestions! Thanks!
