Nice dinner in New Orleans minus reservations?

Hello New Orleans chow hounds :)

My husband and I will be traveling to NOLA Oct. 10 through Oct. 15. We will be staying at the Astor Crowne Plaza. I was hoping for some recomendations on a nice dinner out without having to make reservations. We will be in town for hubby to attend a convention at Morial that will have a mostly flexible schedule.

I have been reading recs here for a few months on where to eat and drink and I must say I do feel rather overwhelmed with all the choices. I do know one thing, he wants seafood and I want authentic southern, creole and cajun.

We love walking and exploring new destinations but will have transportation available to us, I would like to use the streetcars once or twice however.

Come to think of it, anyone have an opinion as to whether or not we should reconsider getting a car there? I fear the parking situation and overpriced hotel valet might have my sweetie cussing in no time flat!

Thank you in advance for any and all responses!
