Graduation Party in NOLA

Hello Everyone,

My family and friends and I are coming to NOLA in March for my Graduation from Capella University. I am looking for a restaurant similar to Mulate's (I want to go there but the reviews haven't been that great). I would love to have my Graduation dinner at a place that is FUN with music and great down home NOLA foods. I would like a place that is good for all ages that plays music. Dress semi-casual.

Thanks for any help you can provide!

  1. Bachanal's has a great casual atmosphere. You eat out in the back yard that is sort of secret garden-esque and you order at an outdoor kitchen area for your entree or inside for alcohol or cheese. They have a good selection of cheeses, beers and wine, and you just pick out what you want and bring it up to the register. They'll prepare a plate for you and bring it out. Great food, live jazz music and romantic garden style eating make for a great and unique experience!
