Dining alone

We're visiting NO as a couple this weekend, but then on Monday and Tuesday, my spouse is busy in the evening at a conference. What is a good place for a woman alone to dine on a Monday and Tuesday, within a reasonable cab or streetcar ride or walk from the area of Tulane?

we have reservations on Saturday and Sunday at Lilette and at Dantes. I know Monday is particularly tricky - is this the evening I should pick up a po'boy and take it back to the hotel?

  1. I think that a two-top at Brigtsen's would be fine. The staff will take great care of you, and the food is excellent. It is just up St. Charles, and about the second stop on Carrollton (streetcar), then what, two blocks? It's right across from Dante's at 723 Dante St. vs 736 Dante St.

    1. Boucherie is in the neighborhood. The dining area is small which should make solo dining pleasant. There's dining on the front porch. That might be fun. Good luck.

      1. clancy's, patois, gautreau's, upperline, vizard's and bistro daisy are all nice restaurants up in that area.

          after writing these, i thought i'd better see who was open when. patois and upperline not open monday/tuesday nights. clancy's is open mon./tues., vizard's is open only tuesday night, gautreau's is open monday/tuesday night, bistro daisy only tuesday night, mat and naddies is open only monday night, not tuesday. one restaurant is open monday/ tuesday night. check out urbanspoon/new orleans for reviews of these restaurants and addresses.
