Near Tip's Uptown

Looking for a good place to go Friday night before a show at Tipitina's- nothing too fancy, but nice...

  1. Dick and Jenny's. A couple of blocks down Tchoup from Tipitina's on the uptown side.

      Agreed. No reservations, so give youself some time to enjoy a drink of their patio while you wait for a table.

        Casamento's is right by there also

          I've never been to Dick and Jenny's (and they are closed this weekend anyway), but kicking myself for forgetting about Casamento's- Thanks for the tips so far

            One thing I don't miss about living in New Orleans is the mess the city becomes around mardi gras, such a pain especially when I lived uptown. I would imagine Le Petite Grocery wouldn't be out of the question.

            Just remember that C's has dinner service on Th-F-Sat evenings only (besides the regular lunch service, I mean).

              should be okay since it's Friday night...

      2. Not sure how casual you're looking, but there's also Theo's (pizza), Nirvana (Indian), and Storyville (really excellent burgers, etc.) very nearby. And Pascal Manale's is definitely a doable walk down Napoleon, and (just) off the evening parade route.
