where should i splurge on myself for one meal??

hey there...i plan to be in nola on my way cross country in october sometime for a few days and would like to treat myself to one memorable out-of-this-world meal. now, i am not a fancy person by any means, so the place should not be stuffy or pretentious, nor should it be a dive cuz i plan on eating at plenty of those along the way. also please do not recommend a place that has a lot of hits or misses since i have no idea when ill be in that neck of the woods again. i eat virtually anything, but prefer seafood and veggies to meat dishes. i'm not too sure what my limit is just yet, but i would not want to spend no more than $50 (one drink included in this would be great, but i do plan on having a couple of wines, and some dessert - i hear the bread pudding is amazing at some places). also, i am a female in my late 20's, and would prefer a place that is neither too quiet nor too loud, but would feel comfortable eating by myself (at the bar possibly to maybe start a conversation or 2). i apologize for the specifications, but i must use my time there wisely! thank you all so very much for your recs/thoughts
