Hi there, long time lurker and NOLA visitor, first time poster...
I'm part of a group of guys coming in for this weekend and we're always a bit disorganized but we'll probably have a group of 12 to 15 for dinner Saturday night, probably 6 PMish.
I'm looking for hearty real food, good "value" i.e. quality and quantity are reasonable given what is being paid, and an atmosphere that can absorb a large party of men without missing a beat...
Relatively casual is a plus. Near the Quarter i.e. safe walking distance is a big plus. Possibility of getting seated without a reservation also a plus. Full bar a plus.
We're totally happy to break up into smaller tables, FWIW.
For perspective, a couple of years ago we went to NOLA and folks really enjoyed it.
If you've got a place that sounds perfect, but would require a cab or a reservation, please feel free to toss it out there, and I'll consider it... Thanks in advance!
