Need recommendatations near the Marriot on Canal

thndrstm Jul 13, 2010 12:55 PM

Staying there for 10 days starting 7/23. Would like "good value" within walking distance as we have limited time(about 2 hrs) between sessions at a bridge tournament. Even better would
be any places with early bird specials as we are done by 5. Thanks

          Ditto Palace Cafe. Just if you need another vote.

            I'll give Palace Cafe another nod. It's a beautiful restaurant and the food is good. Bananas foster for dessert is a must (table side preparation too). If you go for lunch, I believe they are running their summer "temperature" special - they offer a two course lunch for 10 times the previous day's high temperature. So, if the temp was 95, the price of lunch would be $9.50. I believe they are also running a $5 small plates and cocktails special on weekdays between 5-7 p.m. if you're looking for pre-dinner drinks and snacks or a light, early dinner.

              I agree with the Palace Cafe for a great meal. The Sunday Jazz Brunch is wonderful, there.

                Mr. B's lunch menu: $1.50 cocktail plus BBQ shrimp at the lunch price (less than dinner)
                Pelican Club may have a very, very reasonable early bird special when you're there. I remember seeing a chalkboard. That place is terrific.
                Johnny's Po-Boys is also nearby.
