Need a Dinner Rec Near Snug Harbor

I'm visiting you folks later this month, and are going to take in a show at Snug Harbor. Can you give me any dinner recs that are in that neighborhood? I'm open to most any types of cuisine. Any recs will be appreciated.

  1. Marigny Brasserie is practically next door. There's also Adolfo's above the Apple Barrel. You can eat at Snug Harbor but it's a pretty blah menu.

      Yes, I've had dinner at Snug Harbor...thought I'd try something a little less blah, and stick with what Snug does well, JAZZ!

      Thanks for recs, I'll look into them.

        The Marigny Brasserie isn't particularly notable (someone here once referred to it as "Sysco Catering" which sounds about on target). Adolfo's is pretty good though--their rack of lamb, a special, is very good indeed. (Adolfo's is cash only.)

      2. Maybe Three Muses though they specialize in smaller dishes.

        1. Feelings Cafe or the Country Club are both a short cab ride away. I'd avoid Marigny Brasserie.

            I'd skip Marigny Brasserie and Adolpho's as well. The afore mentioned Three Muses for an array of small plates. Perhaps Irene's then a leisurely stroll to Frenchmen. You will need reservations. Maximos is in the same general area and definitely more of a local clientele. Again, make a resv.

          2. Three Muses down the block on Frenchmen St is a good choice for small plates and live music - good drinks as well

            Marigny Brasserie has improved over the last year or so, but still not what it was 10 years ago. The drinks are good, however

            I like Adolfo's, but it's not for everyone. The food is generally good, but the ambiance is in the negative numbers. I characterize it as 80% of the quality of a fine restaurant at about 60% of the cost.

            Irene's is relatively close on Chartres St, but they generally don't take reservations unless you're a regular. If you get there for the 5:30 opening you'll be seated right away: 10 or 15 minutes later and you'll be waiting an hour or more

            Down in the Bywater, @ 3200 Burgundy St, is Maurepas Foods. No reservations, small plates of innovative food and a great bar. It's a bit of a hike from Frenchmen St, but you can always call a cab to get back ( United Cabs - 504-524-9606
