We're a late 20s-early 30s married couple from New York visiting New Orleans for a wedding. Very excited, as neither of us has been for a very long time. We extended our trip through Monday hoping to have a nice dinner on our own Sunday night after the wedding crowds are gone.
We looked into Herbsaint/Cochon, Patois, La Petite Grocery and Bayona, agonizing over how to choose among so many talented chefs and great menus. And then we saw that EVERY LAST ONE is closed on Sunday. The thread below was no help, as we're not interested in Emeril. (True, the outgoing NYT critic and the Times-Picayune critic who might be the incoming NYT critic say the food is good. But we want an intimate atmosphere, not a TV chef palace.)
So we're seeking something along the lines of the 5 above that are taking Sunday off. They're not exactly alike, of course, but taken together, that's generally what we're looking for in terms of cuisine, atmosphere and price.
Are we out of luck? Or is there cozy place with New Orleans cuisine (in the broadest sense - I'm not the expert and don't want to step into a definitional minefield) that would be right for us Sunday night? If it exists, I trust the NOLA Hounds will know.
Thanks for any tips you can offer - we're greatly looking forward to being back in your fine city.
