Post 11pm dining suggestions & of course critique my food itinerary

tjinsf | May 6, 201208:11 PM

I'm playing food tourist for the next week while the wife is attending a trade show so I'm looking for some late night dining options preferably that are more than just bars with a few snacks and preferably not in the more drunk part of the FQ and that have seafood or veggie options as she doesn't eat land creatures. We are staying in the lower garden district and have a car or can taxi anywhere we need to go.

While she's working away, I'm getting my chow on.

here's the itinerary
Atchafalaya- went there years ago and loved it
Cochon- Thursday
La Petite Grocery
MiLa- Saturday
Domenica- monday or tuesday
Lilette- Wednesday
Gautreau's-monday or tuesday

Green Goddess

Any other places I should try?

most of them will be solo dining except for a group meal that's already planned for Cochon & dinners witht the wife at MiLa & La Petite Grocery. Do I still need to get a reservation for solo dining at Gautreau's. Also I'm used to the more causal dress style of NYC and San Francisco and didn't bring even a sports coat with me. Will that be a problem for any of the above? I remember wearing a suit when I went to Commander's as a kid. I brought pants as I know a couple of them don't allow shorts. I prefer quality of food over atmosphere and more modern food to traditional.
