Hi folks- will be visiting NO w/ my SO at the end of March & would appreciate some advice on pre-show dinner & good drink spots in or w/in walking distance of the Quarter. We both have spent quite a bit of time in NO (him more so than I) so we've done many of the old mainstays...I think.
I prefer eclectic & unfussy hole-in-the-wall neighborhood spots with lots of character...nothing precious. But I am also allergic to seafood, which is a tough hurdle in NO. He prefers traditional meat & potatoes high-end dining & hates to troll the strip-malls & taqueria trailors I Iove to explore.
We'll be dressed casual, & looking for something low to mid-priced that might satisfy both tastes? Preferably not heavy on seafood...
Thanks so much in advance!
