Restaurant with big tv's in New Orleans

Looking for a restaurant that has a couple of big screen tv's to watch the LSU World Series game tonight.
Not looking for a smokey filled bar, but rather a place that we can get a decent meal at and watch the game from our table.
Any thoughts?

  1. Too late now, but Bruno's, Storyville, and Cooter Brown's are options. Probably will be smoky though. Thank god we turned that double play.

      Ok. Looking again. I know LSU lost, but would love to see Georgia beat Fresno State.
      Any other thoughts on places to eat and watch the game?
      Looking for more of a restaurant than bar and also not in the FQ.
      But, any kind of cuisine will do!

        Unfortunately, unlike virtually everywhere else in the US, this place is VERY scarce in NOLA, if it exists at all. I've been looking for about 9 years...a couple (barely adequate options) are Nacho Mamas and Superior Grill (both at the bar), the back bar area at Slice, the bar at Liuzza's (but they will close during the game), the patio at Bulldog (but not tonight, since it's Wednesday and will be massively overrun), and maybe one of the WOW (wings places), but not the one uptown that only has one or two TVs. Never been to the mid-city one though. The real underlying problem is in the lack of mid-priced Mexican/bbq/burger/pizza/sandwich restaurants (not bars) that stay open past 8:30 in this city...but I digress. If you really want to watch the game and eat, I'd probably put up with the smoke and get a table at cooters...although it's serve yourself and you have to pay for refills of soft drinks, or just drink beer.

          What about Gordon Biersch near the casino? It's a chain, but it's the only place that comes to mind. For what it's worth, it's the "official" place to watch Hornets away games, so they must have some big TVs. I've never been there.
