New Orleans Restaurant to Hide and Not be Seen

I would appreciate any suggestions for a quiet, dark restaurant to hide and not been seen.

    1. Doesn't Crescent City Steak House have booths with curtains?

        That was my first though---then there is Port of Call. And Antoine's has the little room behind the Rex Room. Of course, there is also "hiding in plain view".

        Come to think of it, the bar at Clancy's might fit the bill. And Charlie's Steak House..that is fairly anonymous

      2. Bombay Club maybe... they have secluded looking booths and nice cocktails.

          re Crescent City Steakhouse, Yes they have booths with curtains.

          The poster could wear a disguise and dine anywhere to widen their options....

            Good idea...I overlook BC too often.

          2. yes BC can actually conceal you in their booths. Cuvee is nice and dark.

            1. if you're a member of the HOB's Foundation Room, then you could eat in a booth behind a curtain.
              there is also the Living Room at Sara's in the Riverbend.
              Commander's has some private rooms, as does Galatoire's.
              I've set up private dining at Muriel's.
              and call M Bistro at the Ritz.

              and for dark, go to Eleven79.

                But Galatoire's is emptatically not quiet or dark, even the private rooms. I think you do better, as suggested above, hiding in public there. There are a few tables no one ever notices

                  There is the private "wine bottle room" at Tony Angello's ....

                  You'll have to let us know what you decide. Date, time, etc HAAA Just kidding...

                    it still has the naked light bulb hanging for dear life over the table.
