Best Food in a Casual Atmosphere

Ny wife and I will be NO for Jazzfest and would like some recommendations for great food in places that aren't too dressy. For me, a polo shirt, jeans and Nikes is about as dressed up as I'm gonna get this trip. Price isn't really an object, but I realize we probably wouldn't feel comfy at Commander's, for example. K-Paul's comes to mind and I was hoping for a few more recommendations as we'll be in town for almost two weeks.

      Those are excellent suggestions. In the quarter, I'll add
      Coop's
      Eat
      Fiorella's
      Bennachin
      Acme/Felix's

      Uptown,
      Crepe Nanou (french)
      Jamila's (french-tunisian)

      You could probably get away with that look at RioMar, too.

      Cafe Reconcile for down-home lunch.
