Dinner Recommendations for Family

ad40602 Aug 11, 2008 01:35 PM

Taking my family to the Saints game Saturday night.
Can I get some recommendations for good food that kids might enjoy the atmosphere or surroundings?
Last places we took them were:
Redfish Grill
Palace Cafe(which was horrible)

Can be any price range.

      Jacques-imos. Decent food, fun atmosphere. Get there when they open.. They don't take resv. for parties less than 5.

        If it's this saturday, the sign on the door says they're on vacation until the 19th.

        Gumbo Shop, Jacques-imos as mentioned earlier, though the wait is often unbearable, Cannon's or Houston's on St. Charles (mostly for the view of streetcars going by rather than the food quality), Camelia Grill, Matt n Naddies, Parkway Bakery.

          Best to check opening times since kick off is at 7. ( Don't know why I was thinking 8). Had to move our resv. back to 5:30. Uptown dining will be pushing it. Warehouse/cbd may be your best bet. Perhaps Herbsaint or Cochon.
