My daughter is moving to Dallas from Tallahassee. She's driving there in mid-July. I'm going to fly to New Orleans and drive to Dallas with her the rest of the way. We'll have one dinner. My flight gets in at 7:30 p.m. on a Wed night. We're staying at the Ritz Carlton. So we need a place that serves late, and is not too far from the Ritz or alternatively, is on the way from the airport to the Ritz. We've both been to N.O. before (separately) and have enjoyed meals at Brigsten's, Lillette, Herbsaint, Cochon, Stanley, Commander's Palace and many more. We both LOVE, LOVE Cochon Butcher and are so sorry it only opens at 10 am. It would have been awesome to take sandwiches with us for the road trip the next day, but we need to leave N.O. by 8 am. :( We are open to both traditional New Orleans and more modern New Orleans. Price isn't a concern, but we won't be too dressed up. Thanks in advance for your help!
