Solo dining options for traveler

I'm going to be in town this Monday - Thursday on business and need some great recommendations for dinner. I'm not the biggest fan of getting the table for one however, so i'm looking for places with a bar that i can order the full menu at. I'm staying at the Marriott Pere Marquette near Bourbon St, and my budget per meal is $100. Appreciate any help.

  1. I believe that G W Fins, just down from the Pere Marquette, has full menu at the bar. OTOH, a single table would not be frowned upon there, by any stretch. Since NOLA has been a business meeting sort of town, and is getting back on its feet, a single diner is not a problem for most places.

    1. Cochon, Herbsaint, Rio Mar, Dick and Jennys, NOLA, and Emeril's all do bar dining very well.

        thank you both for the rec's, will definately try them.

      2. Just ramble over to Galatoire's...a single customer at q two-top is Standard Procedure there...and the whole downstairs room is a bar, if you want it to be so. Make pals with your waiter and you'll be in hog heaven.

        1. Muriel's serves it's full menu at the bar, & for less expensive meals: Napoleon House, Coop's & Port of Call.

            Elleven79 has a cozy bar area where they serve the whole menu. Mr. Joe the owner is a character and the food is wonderful. Cheers
