I am coming to a conference in New Orleans in September. I need to book 2 lunches and 2 dinners where I will be entertaining business clients. I am looking for great food and wine lists and a la carte menus (not tasting menus). I am not looking for white table cloth steak dinners - looking for great, fun, local cuisine. My only point in noting that I will be entertaining business clients is that the places should not be so loud that I am unable to converse with my clients.
Conference is at the Marriott in the French Quarter - it would be really helpful if the suggestions were within a 7 minute walk for lunches and within a 10 minute cab ride for dinner.
