Hello party people --
We are coming to town in late August for three nights for a bachelor party and have a dedicated group of foodies ready to check out all that New Orleans has to offer. We're staying in the French Quarter. The only thing that is set in stone so far is that we will be doing lunch on Saturday at Commander's Palace. The rest of our weekend is a blank slate.
We're looking for a late-night, casual spot on Thursday night (we don't land until 8:30pm) with a New Orleans feel and some southern flavors. Amazing fried chicken would be a plus. Something with some history and folklore.... and good booze.
Friday night is our big dinner. We are currently deciding between the following places. Please let me know which one you think would be the best for a group of 15 somewhat rowdy Californians who love good food.
Any other suggestions for "must try" places that would be fun for us to hit up? I've searched the board and have a list already in the works but just wanted to make sure I'm not missing anything.
One last thing, the bachelor is a vegetarian and I was hoping folks might be able to recommend a few amazing veggie-friendly spots. I'm looking for a place known for its vegetarian offerings that still really captures the southern/creole New Orleans vibe.
