A friend and I are going to NO in the middle of september for some gambling and cocktails for a couple of days. We are staying at the Hilton Riverside and require at least on nice dinner away from the casino (Harrah's). It will probably be Saturday night. I am looking for someplace within walking distance or a short cab ride. I don't want to go accross town. Price is not a factor. We are looking for something unique to NO. Old classics are fine-nothing too trendy or unestablished. I know overtime some places become cliche or overrated but that is ok. We are just tourist in town for a couple of days just looking for good food. No steakhouses please. We are from Dallas and get enough of that here.
fish , oysters, fried stuff, crab...mmmmm
What about local casual lunch too?
Where should we consider?
