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.

    1. Domenica in Roosevelt Hotel or Luke. Both are good bar dining. Go from 3/6 PM for half price drinks, hafl price pizza and 50 cent oysters at Luke.

      Domenica @ 123 Baronne St., New Orleans, LA. 504 - 648 - 6020.
      Luke Restaurant @ 333 St. Charles Ave., New Orleans, LA. 504 - 378 - 2840.

      1. Cochon and Cochon Butcher both have food bars.

          I just looked at the menu for Cochon Butcher and that may be my first stop!!

        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.
