I am looking for a restaurant in New Orleans with great food and wine list for a group of approx. 10ish folks. Price is not too important but no one will have a coat and tie with them. The food and service don't need to be too precious, but solid. Need a place where we can get reservations. Please help. Thanks.

    I am thinking Upperline, Herbsaint, Cochon, Brigsten's, NOLA or Bourbon House...which if these best meet my earlier stated goals of being solid but not too fancy and good for 10 folks.

      Cochon doesn't move me and it is quite small with uncomfortable picnic table like furniture, but he is a terrific chef. Herbsaint is his other restaurant. All of the above mentioned are winners in my estimation. Look into Restaurant August if money is no object or Cuvee. I just read 1179 is reopened, a lively atmosphere, but hard to get a reservation sometimes, but that was pre-K.

          Sunday can present a problem, but I think Upperline, Galatoire's (jacket for dinner), GW Fins, K-Paul's, Palace Cafe', and NOLA are open.

          Brigtsen's, Cuvee, August, and Herbsaint are closed on Sunday. You'll have to check the others. If The Pelican Club is open, I'd chose it--it's a real gem right in the middle of the FQ. Otherwise, check out the web sites of the others and see which menus appeal to you.

            Dickie Brennan's Bourbon House. Nice. Lovely environment. Fabulous seafood presentation. Casual, but very nice.
