Are there any great restaurants on Frenchman St. My son wants to do the music scene and it would be nice if there is a club that also has fantastic food. Also is the trip out to the original Tipitina's worth it or should we stick with venues closer to the FQ?

    Three Muses is pretty good food and a fun place.

    Go to Tips, if there is good music playing. It is such a great venue.

    There is a ton of good food in the uptown area beyond Casamento's.

      I would eat at Adolfo's and start with the oysters pernod get the lamb chops if they are the special!
      It is located above the Apple Barrel bar, which also has music.

        The main music club on Frenchmen is Snug Harbor, the food's not marvelous but it's a great club. I second Adolfo's above the Apple Barrel too.

        Tipitina's is definitely worth the trip in my book, but be aware that there are no seats inside--it's a standing-room club. There is no food sold inside. Tip's has a food truck outside many nights, and when it doesn't, sometimes there is someone selling hot dogs and the like, I think. Ms. Mae's is up the block for cheap drinks [very cheap] before the show. Casamento's is next to Ms. Mae's but closes early--I love it, though. The oyster loaf is one of my favorite dishes in town.

          thanks for the suggestions on Three Muses. I also noted on a map that Casamentos restaurant is close to Tipitinas and I've read some good reports on CH about an oyster loaf there. Also Miss Mae's is in the neighborhood for supposedly the world's best chicken. Too much food, too little time. My son is coming for an interview at LSU Med School, so if he gets in I can visit more often and eat more great food.

            I am not sure, but i think MS. Mae's is just a dive bar, no food served.

              I think the OP may be thinking of Willie Mae's Scotch House.

            Cabs are cheap (call United) and Tipitina's is a fine spot to catch a show. Like BayouTeche says, check out who's playing first. Tips is non-smoking, which may or may not be a plus. Around the corner on Magazine is Le Bon Temps Roule where there's usually someone interesting playing and a pretty okay scene.

            ObFood: Don't neglect trying Dick & Jenny's if you're in that neck of the woods. Have the fried oysters and a bottle of Gruet while you're waiting for a table and enjoy the scene. D&J's remains the only place ever where the waiter went for distance while opening a bottle of bubbly. Four of us were out in the alley and he tried -- with a few bottles -- to get the cork over the fence. Good times! And the food is A-OK in my book.

              Sounds like my kind of waiter. Thanks for the suggestion.

              Three Muses is a great club with fantastic live music and food. It get's crowded quick, so nab a table (or a spot at the bar) early.

              A trip to Tip's? Depends on who's playing.
