I'm getting married on a balcony in the French Quarter on Saturday, January 22nd at 6pm. Here is my plan. I would love to hear some feedback, especially since I've researched this for many hours.
8pm dinner at Brightsen's
Where would you go celebration-wise after the dinner? It will be us, my mom and her husband, and my dad and his girlfriend.
Sunday--Jazz Brunch at Mr. B's 10:30
At this point, these two restaurants are locked....the following is my tentative schedule, which I would like some feedback on. FYI, I do not want to get dressed up in a coat/tie for any restaurant....so any of those are out.
Sunday: very casual walk around the FQ day
late lunch--acme oyster house
breakfast--cafe du monde
lunch--Cafe Gumbolaya? Gumbo Shop? The Palace?
Dinner--I'm torn...I'm leaning toward Jacques-imo's but I've heard so much about Pascal's Manale and the BBQ shrimp...although I've heard that it's kind of gone downhill and I will supposedly be eating the best BBQ shrimp when I go to Mr. B's
Camillia Grill of the Palace
Also on my list of to-do in the quarter on Sunday and Monday are: French Market, Harrah's, The Napoleon House, Lafitte's Blacksmith shop, muffaleta at Central Grocery.....
I need a suggestion on nightlife in and around the quarter on Sunday/Monday....I would like to do a jazz club....also, how is the Cajun Cabin?
Finally, is there a rooftop bar on top of the Royal Orleans hotel, and is it available to the public.
I appreciate all the suggestions. I love this site. Thanks to all!!
