  1. Ernst Cafe and Grand Isle come immediately to mind.

    Grand Isle Restaurant

    1. Lucy's Bar. You may run into Drew Brees. Gordon Biersch is a lot of fun too. You can watch the game at either.

      Lucy's Bar @ 701 Tchoupitoulas St., New Orleans, LA 504 - 523 - 8995.

      Gordon Biersch @ 200 Poydras Street, New Orleans, LA 504 - 552 - 2739.

      1. re: Littleman

        how often has Brees actually gone to Lucy's Bar?

        1. re: kibbles

          He's probably been there once...oh no wait he goes there before every homegame and throws down...ya thats it.

          1. re: kibbles

            He went there once after the victory parade. That's when the "it's Brees's favorite bar" chatter began.

        2. thanks for the suggestions. i think Grand Isle is just what i am looking for. i will hit Lucy's afterwards for a drink

          1. re: jeffbatl

            two nearby options that are a bit more blue collar (lunch only (or breakfast, but no dinner)):

            FredRick's
            312 St Charles Ave

            Commerce
            300 Camp St

            1. re: jeffbatl

              If Lucy's is packed, as is usually the case, head across the street to Vic's.

              1. re: BayouTeche

                What's the food like at Vic's. Thanks.

                1. re: Littleman

                  Vic's is good for drinkin' not eatin'. Though they're Shepherd's Pie will do in a pinch.

            2. is ACME a good place for poboys and some gumbo too? or is it too touristy
