New Year's Eve in NOLA (Visiting from NYC) - Have Reservations

I have reservations at Emeril's, Herbsant and Restaurant R'evolution. Which one do I go to?

Or do you have another place to recommend? Either GD, CBD, or FQ.

I've been to Emeril's before, but don't remember it, because I was very young. My husband and I are mostly vegetarian, but eat fish from time to time. We don't want to spend more than 50 per person on food.

  1. Well, I think Herbsaint is a little more pricey than the above, but I am still considering it.

    1. R'evolution is wonderful, but you'll need to be careful to keep it under $50. Emeril's is a more relaxed and casual environment, with excellent food. Herbsaint is a good pick too, but I concur that it may be slightly more pricey than Emeril's.

      It is hard to go wrong with any of your three picks. I would suggest looking at the menus online, thinking about the prices, and then just follow your instincts.

        I concur that keeping the price down will be difficult with Emeril's the best choice from a price point. Another suggestion might be NOLA to get a bit of Emeril at a slightly lower cost.

        The best advice is to check menus and prices. You may be able to put together something great at the pricier places

        The good (or bad) point of NOLA is that you will be very close to the New Years Eve hoopla at Jax Brewery and the Square.

            1. I would guess that all 3 of these restaurants have prix-fixe menus for New Year’s Eve that would go well above your budget. Please check before deciding.

                yes, that is very possible---we just don't eat that much so we can't really justify paying over 50 for just an entree. Thanks much!
