Lunching alone

My husband has a conference in New Orleans soon and I plan on tagging along. Any suggestions for places I'll enjoy and feel comfortable lunching alone? When by myself, I prefer to sit at a bar.

  1. The Green Goddess has a bar, and it also has a tiny one-sided booth in the corner that is perfect for one person.

        2. Recently, I had a splendid time and and equally splendid lunch at the kitchen bar at Emeril's. And I kept the menu while I was sitting there so I had a "program" for the show. I had the rabbit remoulade and the angel hair with smoked mushrooms and tasso cream sauce from the appetizer menu, but they also have a $19.50 three-course prix fixe.
