Hi to all the New Orleans chowhounders out there! I need your help!
I'm getting married in New Orleans in early November and need a good suggestion for a rehearsal dinner spot Friday evening before our Saturday wedding. Our guests will be staying in and around the quarter so the thought was to stay close to the area unless there's a knock your socks off kind of place else where. We are expecting around 60 dinner guests and are trying to keep the cost more middle of the road - nothing too expensive. Festive and fun with a solid NOLA feel and flavor. Most of our guests will be coming in from Texas - where everything might be bigger, just not better than N.O. and I want to reinforce that :) (I'm the one with the Louisiana roots.) Perhaps a balcony or something with a decent view would be a nice touch for the out of towners?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks so much!
