Help! Where to go Sunday nite?

We're coming in for Jazz Fest this weekend. Besides our all day food orgy at the festival, we'll be feasting at August, Bayona and Couchon. So we need a fun and relaxed place to dine Sunday night. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thx!

  1. Here are a few restaurants open on Sunday nights. However, remember that Sunday is not the best night of the week to dine. First, it's the chef's night off, so the food will be cooked without his supervision. Second, fish purveyors don't work on Sunday (and probably not Saturday also), so the seafood may not be as fresh as on other nights. Third, the restaurant may not be as lively as it would be on other nights.

    Bourbon House

    1. Lola sounds perfect for what you want and is close to the fairgrounds. It is on Esplanade. Spanish food, great paella, fun place, byob. Everyone sits outside waiting while drinking their bottles of vino. Highly recommend. If Baru is open that would be a good spot as well.

      1. During Jazz Fest every restaurant should be pretty lively. It's the busiest time of year for the industry. Herbsaint is open the first Sunday of Jazzfest. That is Donald Link's other restaurant besides Cochon. Herbsaint is very relaxed and the food is excellent. Not sure if any of these places are open Sunday night, but you may want to check, b/c they are excellent.

        Mr. B's - This one is defenitely open on Sunday nights.
        Cafe Degas - Also open on Sunday nights and is near the Fairgrounds
        Jacques-Imo's - Super fun and eclectic, if they are open you will wait for while
