Overnight stay at the Trop A.C.

Staying over night this Sunday., I have two restos in mind, but am undecided which one to choose. The two I have in mind are "IL Verdi" and "Palm" If anyone has another favorite in the Quarter please let me know. Thanks all......
I would recommend Girasole if you want to get out of the Casino for what I feel is a better meal than Palm or Carmines. It is walking distance from Trop also. I've never eaten at IL Verdi, so I can't speak for it. Girasole Website is girasoleac.com .
The service was very good and I was there for a party and we did family style apps which were all excellent. They had grilled Langoustine as a special when I was there which I had for my entree. They were simply prepared, but were cooked perfectly and were delicious.
I'll echo bgut1.
We've enjoyed Carmines (both NYC locations and AC) especially with a group. Palm, always a very good steak and have been to the Trop location a couple of times. Enjoy the vodka at Red Square but avoid the food - unless you've already enjoyed the vodka! : )
Another nearby alternative (offsite) would be Dock's for seafood.
Just adding in, but in the Quarter, I like to have appetizers at Cuba Libre. Only appetizers because the main dishes did nothing for me and were served with huge dollops of mashed on the plate. I would have to be on my elipitical an extra hour to burn that pound of potatoes off. ha ha :)
I really always liked the Palm! Never had a bad meal there. Nice fat juicy steak!
Have a great time!!
I really like the Palm restaurant but we are also fans of Ruth Chris and we usually just walk over there for dinner when staying at the Trop.
