Cajun/Creole Restaurant in French Quarter

letahaa Oct 19, 2011 09:07 PM

I'm going to NOLA for a work conference and need to plan a dinner for clients in the French Quarter (there will be 6 of us). We're going to nicer restaurants most of the time we are there, so the clients have asked for a more casual creole/cajun place. Can anyone recommend somewhere that is casual, has great food, but is still ok for clients?

    K-Paul's and order all the apps for the table to share. Best bet entree is the blackened drum or any blackened steak if available. Skip the desserts. Request the downstairs front room. Irene's for creole Italian...resv a must. Again, the front room. There's also Emeril's NOLA, although his flagship in the warehouse district isn't terribly far and IMO, his best.

        Arnauds'( Jazz Bistro room) is business casual, food is delicious, but $30+ for entrees. It is considered one of the 4 NOLA traditional New Orleans establishments. Muriel's in Jackson square is very good too.
