Any great food on Frenchmen Street?

I am visiting New Orleans for the first time in ten years, and I want to check out the music scene on Frenchmen Street while I am in town. What are your 2 or 3 favorite places to eat on Frenchmen Street?

    Three Muses. Great noshes, especially the lamb sliders. Praline Connection for soul food, especially the greens and chicken livers. Burgers at Snug Harbor before/after catching a live jazz show. Those are my 3 faves.

      Adolfo's is the best restaurant on Frenchman. I also like Wasabi.

        Second the Three Muses selection! The small plates are very well done and the bar isn't half bad either :) We had a wonderful extended meal while watching Paul Sanchez and Debbie Davis sing during second weekend of Jazz Fest. Everything we ordered (including the lamb sliders mentioned above!) was perfectly cooked and presented beautifully.

          Third the Three Muses. Loved the small plates. We sat at the bar, great music and wonderful food and drink.

            I third the Three Muses - great small dishes. We sat at the bar, made it easy to order a few dishes and drinks, and listened to wonderful music.

            Second Yuki's! I ate the almost every night I was in NOLA last year. Tried many of the nibbles and more than a few sakes and shochus. Good call kibbles.

                Never ate at Yuki's but I remember my son (who lives in New Orleans and seems to spend a great deal of his limited free time on Frenchman Street) pointing it out as one of his favorites when we were there.....So I guess that counts as a local's recommendation...

            Though it is not actually a restaurant, the bar cafe negril has a great taco stand open in the back most nights. The pineapple pork tacos are divine, and the rather awesome proprietor is there sometimes till after 1am... Great snack late night, and he has a few other options.
