looking for casual lunch near the Mint
Any suggestions for "ladies who lunch"? Looking for nice atmosphere, preferably with outdoor seating or a nice view. I was thinking Tomatillos, but the menu just does't look that good. Not Port of Call or Buffa's- something a little nicer and lighter.
Tujague's serves lunch! (or at least they used to, before the "thing". You might want to double-check).
Tomatillo's is fairly decent for 'Mexican' and they have a great outdoor patio. Also, you may want to consider Praline Connection on Frenchman. No outdoors but you can get a streetside seat.
If you are in the mood for Mexican, El Gato Negro on French Market Place is good. I think they have a table or two on the sidewalk. It faces the French Market flea market section and is next to that artist co-op. They also have good margaritas, I had a carrot one recently that was interesting and tasty.
