Help me pick a lunch spot!

I know there are a ton of great lunch deals to be had in New Orleans. To be honest I work A LOT and NEVER take a lunch, so I never really took notice of when the lunch deals are mentioned.
BUT...I have a four day weekend and a girlfriend and I are going to go to lunch either tomorrow or Friday.
We are not pinching pennies...but we do love a great deal...and we'd love to try a place that we normally might not go because it might be expensive for dinner.
I hear J'Anita's on the Avenue is doing a lamb special for lunch Friday back by popular demand.
this is at their new location on St. Charles.
last Friday, they served:
"Lamb, cheese grits, blanched haricots verts (French green beans). Sound special? It IS the lunch/dinner special -- including your choice of Kimmie's lemon or watermelon/mint granita. $10.75 while it lasts."
I think Bayona is a great choice under any circumstances but I admit I have not been there in awhile so my news may be rusty. I hav never had any problems there over the brief life of the place.
My flagship Galatoire's has the same menu and same prices from the moment it opens until the time it closes..open all day. Go have a look at the menu and see if you want to play. Dress up.
re: edible complex
ec, in ref to AP:
I was there the other night and I just do not like the whole set up...the bartender can take your drink order and you can pay her for the food but she won't take your food order...you have to get up and walk around a pool table to find the guy who is cooking/serving the food
so after I get an explanation of this the bartender tells me that J'anitas is good but if I still want regular bar food then I can order mini tacos and stuff from her bar menu
OK...so I decide on guac (which was fantastic- chips were fresh but a little too greasy) and I ask my husband to order...he gets up and wanders around for 5 minutes in the general direction that the bartender points and tries to figure out who takes the order...finally I asked a guy playing pool who is doing J's food and it was him (I just got lucky)
how the hell that is supposed to work I have no idea...put on a J'anita's tshirt or an apron or something indicating that aside from playing pool you can get me some salsa....crazy
