I don't know what you consider not too fancy, but if you are heading for Frenchman check out New Orleans Restaurant on Frenchmen Street - Marigny Brasserie, (they aren't always consistent, for example the BBQ shrimp will sometimes be sweeter than other times, but either way you can count on the food as always being good sweeter or not), we also like Snug Harbor,(a bit more money), New Orleans Jazz, (the dining room is usually packed, but the food is really good and you get the benefit of being in an awesome music venue).

If you would like to check out everything available go to, Listed By Neighborhood, click on both the French Quarter and Marigny neighborhoods for a list of restaurants, their rating, and if you click on the restaurant you can read a full review. The restaurants you mention will be on this site and the site belongs to Tom Fitzmorris, a local food critic. He's a bit pompous but when it comes to local food you can't deny the guy has taste buds. Have a good time on your birthday!

We went to Napoleon House. We'd been putting it off, thinking it looked too pricey and fancy. The atmosphere was wonderful, the staff attentive without babysitting us, the food DIVINE. I think it came to $65 for 2 courses and a bottle of wine. There was also a side of jambalaya for lagniappe. will go back ASAP. It's on Royal, so very handy.

Geez Jacq, I didn't know it was that cheap to eat there so we've avoided the place. Looks like I'm gonna convince the other half to go out to eat pretty soon.

Napoleon House would be my first suggestion if you want 'not too fancy' but memorable. The history behind the place and the atmosphere are great. The food is really good (my favorite muffaletta in town), and you can't beat the price. There is a week they take off every year, and somehow I always seem to try to go when they are closed, but I never remember when it is.

I adore Napoleon House. We always sit in the courtyard and I always order a 1/4 muffuletta and Pimm's Cup. I've lived here all my life and have not been to Coop's. It is on the list for next time I'm down in the quarter.

We decided on Cochon, decided to explore out of the quarter. How is the walk from the Doubletree to Cochon? Trying to decide if we should cab it or walk.

You can walk it. Take Tchoupitoulas, there are many restaurants and well-lit areas.

^Exactly what I wanted to know. Wasn't sure how seedy the walk was. We all are used to city living and are street smart, but you never know.
