My DH is a frequent poster on Chowhound & we've enjoyed many excellent dining experiences thanks to all you guys' recs. Now I'm planning a visit to NO w/2 friends in early March. I have a reservation at the Prytania Park Hotel, on Prytania (duh) in the CBD. The hotel is running a special on all rooms for $89/night, & with most places starting around $100, I'm wondering if I should be concerned. Is this is a safe neighborhood? Cost *is* a consideration, but I don't want to stay in a sleazy place. Also, 2 of us don't arrive until around 7:00 on Friday night. Where should I make reservations for us to eat late, say, 9-ish? Someplace close by would be a good idea since we won't be driving, & don't want to delay eating any longer than necessary! Thanks much.
