Late Lunch on Saturday?

We are getting in to NOLA around 2-2:30 on Saturday and are staying at the Whitney. What is available for a late lunch in the general area? A lot of places seem to stop serving at around 2 or so.

Also, for dinner I was thinking of doing a moveable cocktail/appetizer affair in the French Quarter (but certainly not limited to the FQ). Where are your favorite spots/cocktails/appetizers so I can try to plan an itinerary. I would potentially like to end up at the Three Muses.

Thanks for your help!

    1. Not in the fq, Lilette offers around 14 really good appetizers (esp. the truffled parm toast w veal glace and marrow). There is no need to wander with quality and variety this good. Lovely desserts as well. Oh and bottles of prosecco are reasonable.

      1. There is always the bar menu at Mr B's

        1. Lil Dizzy's is in your hotel. Surely you can dine there for a late lunch. Gordon Biersch is down the street. It's a sports bar. They should take your late lunch order. Hobnobber's is a good lunch spot. Lucy's Bar is a good place also. Good luck.

          Gordon Biersch @ 200 Poydras Street, New Orleans, LA 504 - 552 - 2739.

          Hobnobber's Variety Bar and Restaurant @ 139 Carondelet Street, New Orleans, LA 504 - 525 - 5428.

          Lil Dizzy's @ 610 Poydras Street, New Orleans, LA 504 - 212 - 5656.

          Lucy's Bar @ 701 Tchoupitoulas St., New Orleans, LA 504 - 523 - 8995.

          1. we had appetizers at the bar at the Pelican Club. The Quail on Grits and the Seafood Martini with a little bit of yummy potato salad at the bottom were divine. Love apps at the Swizzle Stick Bar but that is over on Poydras in the Lowes Hotel. The Le Meritage has all the items on their menu in small plate and entree sizes, but by just looking thru the window it doesn't appear to have a bar scene.
