  1. I had a lovely dinner at Marigny Brassiere on Frenchmen tonight. But if you don't want to walk past a bunch of smelly hippies, maybe try Eat on Dauphine and Dumaine. BYOB so very economical. You could bring a couple bottles of champagne to make it feel special.

      I am thinking that Dick & Jenny's and Mat & Naddie's are exactly what you are looking for.

    2. I really liked Cafe Amelie on Royal in the Quarter. Wonderful courtyard and FQ vibe. Service and Food was great. I'd go back. Happy Birthday.
