Dinner for Six Girls in Uptown

We have a group of early 30 somethings going to New Orleans. We'd love to venture uptown for dinner...something delicious with great service. It does not have to be the fanciest of fancy, just good wine and a nice atmosphere. We will be there end of August.

  1. Lots of good restaurants to choose from: Commander's Palace, The Upperline, Clancy's, Patois, Brigtsen's, to name a few. What is your price point?

    1. Have cocktails at Bouligny Tavern on Magazine, then go next door to the beautiful and fun bistro, Lilette. Both owned by the same person, chef John Harris. You'll be happy happy! Another option is Gautreau's on Soniat, where JH got his start. Both are festive on weekends with good food, service, and interesting wine lists. And to make sure everything goes fine, I'll be happy to come along...

      1. Missed the wine reference in the first reading. Try Oak Wine Bar on Oak music, tapas and a great wine selection. It was featured in the TP Lagniappe bar guide.

        1. Boucherie is what I'd consider casual gourmet - great service and creative dishes. Seemed pretty popular with the younger crowd when I was there.

            Boucherie's website says they're on vacation from 8/1 - 9/6.

          2. I love the atmosphere of Coquette on Magazine St. The bar is lovely and the pressed tin ceiling is quaint.
            Chef's homemade bread is worth the trip alone.
