wanna be a carnivorous barfly in New Orleans...

can anyone suggest a bar that serves up some tasty dishes where a lady (well, I guess that depends on who you are askin') could sit at the bar, chat up some of the bartenders and have a nice little meat (or seafood) based feast? It's my fave thing to do in a new city and this will be my first time in new orleans, so any suggestions would be very welcome!

  1. Coquette has great bar and great food

    1. One Restaurant and Lounge, Clancy's, Emeril's, Mr. B's, Luke, Domenica, Rambla, Rio Mar, La Boca, Cochon

      1. The food at Molly's on the Market was uncommonly good the last time I was there; the gumbo was superb. The bartenders and the other patrons were very friendly too.

        1. Yeah, I like Coquette for this too.

          1. Are you talking about a restaurant that has a bar, or a bar that serves food? The recs I'm seeing are extremely varied, and I believe knowing which would help us narrow it down for you. Coquette is a fine dining restaurant, Molly's is a bar with food.

              so true...when I was younger, it was a bar that served food. then as my tastes matured, it became a restaurant w/a bar where I could belly up for some good nosh and drinks.

                either or is good...but I want to sit at a bar, preferably with reasonable bar seats and where I won't look weird eating a meal..
