Good morning everyone! My husband and I are heading to New Orleans the 24th for a conference. We are planning on checking out Frenchmen St Thursday night and are looking for a place to eat. Any suggestions?

Friday night we are probably planning on hitting the French Quarter and would like to find a nice place too.

We are not looking for the high price end restaurants that are in NoLA. We have a group of about 10 going unfortunately have a budget...

We would love to experience true New Orleans if that makes sense.

thanks!!!

        "Coop's is a great NOLA dive joint that serves outstanding comfort food and cold drinks. You can also watch the game there on their many TV's." - am I missing something? The 3 or 4 times I've been there, I've never noticed anything more than a 22 inch tube tv close to the bar. Is there some hidden sports bar in Coops, good for TV watching that I've missed?

          Coops is good put into the context of "bar" food. The Three Muses fare is considerably better. Live music as well. I'd skip Adolphos. Neither Snug, Yo Mama's nor Buffas (yuk) are as good as POC. Just my 2 cents. Try the daily 3-6 happy hours at Luke and Domenica.
