New Orleans Chowhound's delimma: I will be landing at 7:30 p.m. on Dec. 31st, staying at the Pacific Terrace Hotel, and need a nice place for dinner. I'll have a car but have no idea whether the places recommended on this board are (1) reasonably close to the hotel so we won't be eating at midnight and (2) available on short notice. Would Indigo Grill, Laurel, Cafe Pacifica, Kemosabe fit the bill, so to speak? Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Budget is not a concern, although my focus is on food, not decor or obsequious service.
