hello, i will be returning to new orleans just in time to bring in the new year, but have no clue what to expect restaurant-wise. i imagine it's utter craziness, but i just hope it won't be impossible to get a reservation. i also have no clue where i would want to have a celebratory dinner (i have been to clancy's, brigtsens, CP, etc.), so would like to try a place ive never been), but my friend and i would love to have a fantastic seafood dinner, then catch some live music. also, what's up on new years day; is everyone recovering, w/ not many places open? i appreciate any info, and thanks for reading!
