New Orleans restaurant good for a bachelorette party dinner?
I've seen some great restaurant recommendations for New Orleans in the Talk forums, but I'm looking for something specific, and could use some help: I'll be part of a group of 8 or so ladies visiting New Orleans in late July (yeah, we know it's gonna be hot and muggy!) to celebrate a friend who is getting married. One of the nights, we want to go out to dinner someplace fun, not too extremely expensive, preferably in or near the French Quarter, preferably serving classic southern/New Orleans cuisine, and able to accommodate large groups. A good cocktail menu would be a plus (for the others, anyway -- I'm pregnant and therefore will just look on with envy.) Anyone have a suggestion for someplace meeting those criteria?
