Dinner next Wednesday

Hello All,
My husband and I are coming in to New Orleans next week for a quick visit . We are actually traveling for wedding on the Mississippi coast over the weekend, so we only have Wednesday, Thursday morning and Sunday afternoon to spend in New Orleans. I thought I had our meals all plotted out (Wednesday - Lunch at August, Dinner at Green Goddess, Thrusday Lunch at Emeril's, Sunday - Brunch at Commander's Palace), but I just discovered that Green Goddess is closed on Wednesday night. We are on a budget, so Green Goddess was a perfect match for the wallet, in addition to the great reviews. I had been considering Boucherie for dinner, but after mapping everything out, we weren't sure if we wanted the hassle of driving across town, parking, etc for dinner (we are staying in the Quarter) since it is such a short visit. Do you have any recommendations that are in the same price range as Green Goddess and don't involve driving? I'm looking for the best possible food at a reasonable price (not a Po' boy), and something unique to New Orleans (but not necessarily classic). Should we just suck it up and drive to Boucherie? Alternately, it looks like we could take the St. Charles street car all the way there. How long would that take? What is the price range of Herbsaint? Is it or Cochon walkable from the Quarter? Would I feel comfortable making that walk? While we're at it, do you have recommendations in the Pass Christian/Gulfport area for dinner on Friday? Thanks in advance for your help!
