I'm planning on going out with a girlfriends after work tonight - would like to go someplace with a festive atmosphere to celebrate Mardi Gras/Fat Tuesday.
However, we don't want to be in the middle of "Bourban Street" if you know what I mean. Not looking for a packed to the rafters place crowded with drunk people eating so so "Cajun like" food.
Would like good southern food, moderately priced (could go to the high side of moderate) and I'll assume that most places serving southern cuisine tonight would be rather festive. We all work downtown, so would prefer to stay somplace between Tribecca and flatiron if possible....
any and all suggestion would be greatly appreciated!
