Boucherie or Ye Olde College Inn?

Following an evening arrival I was hoping to grab a quick meal at one of the above spots on the way in. Have never been to Boucherie and have not been to Y.O.C.I. in ages (pre-Katrina). I know they're very different but remain interested in both. Have seen some mixed reports. Any words of wisdom on their respective qualities and strengths?

    Never been to YOCI but went to Boucherie a few months ago and it was amazing and very reasonably priced. Really no weaknesses, except it can be quite loud and a little cramped.

      Been to YOCI but not Boucherie (except the bar/grill of the same name in the 60s/70s FQ). College Inn is worth going to but not in the league of the normal 20-30 N.O.fine dining places.

      It is more of the decent neighborhood restaurant type but differs from the Mandina's/Liuzza's as the atmosphere and food is a bit more upscale and a bit more non traditional.

        College Inn is doing its best to present as a chef driven restaurant but its just not there yet.
