I will be in town this weekending competing in the Ironman 70.3 Triathlon in New Orleans. I am looking for some recommendations for dinner on Friday night. this will be my first time in NO - although it will not be too eventful as I need to rest up for the race on sunday.
I am looking for some recommendations for dinner on Friday night. I want somewhere with GREAT Food - however not having creole or cajun cooking before I don't really want to try before the race. I am looking for a place with simply prepared, very fresh dishes, and grilled - something light and not too heavy. Preferably a place with great fish. Almost Houstons Restaurant esque but I don't want to go to Houstons because they have those everywhere. I also want a great atmosphere and price is no issue.
MiLA was recommended to me how is that? I have also looked at Lilette, and August.... recommendations?
I will be staying at the big W hotel on Poydras - but I am happy to travel around.
