  1. there is absolutely nothing low key about Jacque Imo's. and while I enjoy it's festive atmosphere and simple soulfood, it's not what I would consider a foodie destination.

      Wow, the words "there is absolutely nothing low key about Jaques Imo's" was forming in my head as I read the question.

        I third that....go to Dante's Kitchen or to Brigtsens. Skip J-I.

      2. I, too, might choses Brigsten's over Dante's Kitchen. J-I is fun, but the other two have better food.

          Dante's without a doubt over J-I. Brigtsens, One, or Boucherie (less expensive) are excellent choices. All are in the area you are talking about.

        2. ok i have narrowed it down to bday dinner at vacherie, dante's, jacques, and atchafalaya... was thinking about cochon ..but i live and eat that style/type of food every day.. i am def thinking of doing lunch at either commander or kpaul... would love to know what you guys think..thanx in advance..

            If you like martini's then Commander's for lunch is the way to go. Martini's are 25 cents at lunch.
