I am heading to New Orleans in March for a bachelorette party. The group is made up of first-timers and regulars. We will have 2-3 dinners and I want to make they are all fun with excellent food and offer a true New Orleans experience. We have most of the itinerary figured out so far, but I am looking for recommendations for Friday night. We are looking for a French Quarter restaurant that would be fun for 10 women in their late 20s and early 30s with entrees in the $25 range. If you have bar recommendations afterward that would be a plus. Here is the itinerary so far:
-Thursday night - Herbsaint (only half the group will be in town for this one)
-Friday night - Looking for a rec in the FQ - a local friend recommended Muriels, NOLA, Bourbon House or Stella (dont want to spend that much if we can avoid it)
-Saturday night - Dick and Jenny's and then out to some nearby spots to hear live music
Please let me know your thoughts for Friday and if you have any comments on the rest of the itinerary. Thanks!
