I'm going to be in town for a convention on these days and am looking for places to eat dinner and my mind is swimming from all of the options in the city. I'm hoping you can help point in the right direction.
A few requirements:
I'm staying near the convention center, so I need places that are within easy, safe walking distance and/or easily accessible by public transportation.
I'm pregnant and cannot deal with anything that smells too fishy, so any restaurant that is heavy on the seafood is out.
I will be dining with my sister on the first two evenings and alone on the last night.
Ideally, entree price would be under $20,
I'm coming down from Canada, but am originally from Texas, so any good BBQ, Cajun/Creole options would be wonderful. My tastes lean towards comfort foods, but I'm willing try just about anything.
So far, the only must-go place I have is Central Market for a muffaletta on the way home. I'm thinking Joey K's might be an option, but I'm curious about what the locals think.
Any help would very much appreciated!
