    I like Rue de Jean, but if you want to hear each other talk, go to McCrady's.

      Wow. Two very different restaurants. McCrady's rather formal, serious, very creative food, James Beard winning chef, expensive. 39 Rue DeJean much more casual , fun place, but its not really about the food. I didn't care for it much, but I've only eaten there once, so if Sue likes it, I'm sure it's fine. French bistro-ish, but if I wanted French, I'd go to La Fourchette.

        I've eaten at Rue several times and have always been satisfied with what I ordered. However, if you plan to walk there, McCrady's is closer, and the food is outstanding, but expensive. Have fun.
