restaurant recs for table of 10-11 ppl?

Family coming in to town for a week. Looking for dinner and brunch spot recommendations that can accommodate larger groups. Kinda hard sometimes with the tiny spaces in this city.

So far booked: NOLA

Possibles: Jacque Imo's, K-Paul's, Cochon, Muriel's (brunch, Commander's is booked solid).

Anybody know if Herbsaint can take large parties?

Looking forward to any input you all might have. Thanks for the help!

  1. Drago's is always a great place, and check the blue room for brunch

    1. Emeril's and Delmonico's can accomodate a group of your size.

      1. Are you looking to stay in a particular area? Any specifics on food?

        We've had some good meals at Cafe Atchafalaya recently and I've seen big parties there. They also have brunch.

        Coquette takes larger parties - they typically seat them upstairs. I've never been for brunch.

        I think Herbsaint takes large parties - I know my parents have been there with a group.

        Tommy's or Meson 923 in that area should also take large parties.

        I would think that most places in the quarter or CBD would take larger parties as they are more accustomed to groups.

          1. I will add G W Fins, and book their private room, just off the dining room. IIRC, it can handle up to 20-24, but is more suited for a party of 12, IMHO. Fresh, local seafood, in interesting preparations will be the fare there. Not sure if they have any beef, but do have some pork dishes. Wife has had a few (when she had seafood burnout), and enjoyed those.

            Good luck,
