Casual dinners?

peachacid Mar 21, 2012 10:57 AM

Hey all. So we get tons of recs for casual lunches, fancy lunches, and fancy dinners. My boyfriend and I like to have a nice lunch, and then sort of find food casually for dinner.

Any recommendations for such things? We're staying in the Quarter, but anywhere near a place we can spend the evening drinking or listening to music (preferably both!) would be awesome.

    Head down to the Marigny for music and food.

      Try Italian Barrel then head over to Marigny for the afternoon and find dinner. Adolpho's would be nice.

        Littleman, when was the last time you were at Italian Barrel? Is it good again. Two years ago, it was my absolute favorite. Then IMHO, it went south. Have not been in a long time. Would
        love to return...if it has returned to its former self.

          Two weeks ago. It was outstanding. Satisfied. If not that's fine too. Don't go.

          Three Muses in the Marigny for casual dinner or POC on Esplanade for excellent burgers with baked potato.
