St. Patrick's Day
It looks like I'll be in NO on St. Patrick's Day. I'm staying at the Ritz-Carlton (wife got a GREAT rate for her convention) and I'm looking for dinner within walking distance. I'm assuming St. Pat's is a bit nuts in the Quarter, so I'd prefer to walk rather than rely on cabs that night.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
(I've been to Mr. B's and K-pauls which aren't too far)
I'm pretty sure that the Palace Cafe should be within walking distance. It would be a great choice for dinner. The crabmeat cheesecake is a wonderful appetizer, but you also might want to try the turtle soup, which is exceptional. And the white chocolate bread pudding makes a great finish! Now all you have to do is choose between a number of appealing entrees... duck, beef tenderloin, fresh fish, etc.
quickest way to get sobered up on St Pat's is getting knocked in the head with a cabbage or bar of Irish Spring...trust me...go to the Parade Uptown and bring a bag for collecting loot- and keep your eye out for flying green objects (last year I saw pkgs of ramen w/green lables and lime tic tacs) magazine and louisiana is a good spot
