inexpensive but GOOD Restuarants???

My husband and I are going to New Orleans the last week of July for our 5 year anniversary. We both have been to New Orleans right around the time we were married for Mardi Gras, so needless to say we drank our dinners.....hahaha. We are just looking for some restaurants that are good yet NOT TOO expensive. We are working with a budget of around $40 plus tip for dinner nightly. Any idea's will be very helpful.

  1. You could do the Baisl Leaf on Carrolton (if you like Thai) for around that much. The portions ar ebig enough to split as well, so you do apps and I recommend their soups too.

    1. go to the summer menus thread:

      many restaurants have special menus and pricing during the summer. also check out the COOLinary participating restaurants.

      have fun!

        Definitely check the summer menus topic. You can dine at some of our better rest. quite reasonably if you stick to their specials.

      2. parkway bakery
        liuzza's on bienville
        mandina's

        poboy places in general

        1. Bring a bottle of wine to Lola, on Esplanade. Try tapas at Cafe Granada on Carrollton.

          1. In the French Quarter grab a Muffalata (great Italian sandwich) at Central Grocery on Decatur St & picnic on the Moonwalk by the river. Use the $ you save to lunch the next day at Commander's Palace --$.25 martinis and a 3 course dinner for $29.
