Football watching/Party of 10/Decent food
I'm looking for a rec (preferably but not necessarily in/near the French Quarter) for a good spot to watch a 7pm football game for a big group that wants something better than pub food, or at least wants good pub food. Any recs?
We love Cooter Brown's, which is on the St Charles streetcar line, right before the bend. The food and beer are both good, and there are tons of screens to watch the game.
The Carousel Bar at The Monteleone has TV's. It's smoke free. Coop's Place is also smoke free and has plenty of TV's.
