Good eats near the W hotel

Hey all,

Will be flying into NOLA around 9 on a friday night and checking into the W. Can you recommend a solid place for dinner in the general vicinity. We are probably eating at Emeril's NOLA on saturday night and places I looked into that interested me were Cochon, Luke, Red Fish Grill, Coquette and GW Fins. I just have no idea about location or attractiveness to a group of 8 female new yorkers. Would like a good atmosphere with very good food.

thanks so much

    1. If you don't already have a reservation at Cochon for 8 people, it might be tough to get one. I would skip Red Fish Grill. Also FYI you will need a cab to get to Coquette from either W location.

      1. well be at the W in the french quarter

          Your list is good but Red Fish is defintely at the bottom of the list. SoBu, Muriels and Mr. B's are all good close choices before RedFish Grill

            I like Luke and GW Fins the best of all the places you mentioned. But they are further away than SouBou and Mr B's.
