Hello NOLA! I am coming in a couple down in a few weeks to visit one of my favorite cities. I need a good restaurant recommendation for a birthday dinner Saturday night. Anything in the French Quarter area, not too fancy, something we cant miss!

Thanks!

I love Coop's especially late at night, but I'm not sure it would be what one is looking for in terms of a "birthday dinner". Consider Cafe' Maspero, Margaritaville, Tujague's, Ralph and Kakoo's. There are so many good choices.

Why limit yourself to the Quarter? To many great restaurants within a few minutes drive that are a lot better then what you will find in the quarter.

Vincent's Italian Cuisine at the end of St Charles Av is just one of them. Dante's Kitchen is another. Grand Isle Restaurant is only a short distance from the Quarter across from the Convention Center or even Cochon Butcher.

Lots of better choices then the Quarter and these are places that locals eat.

What type of food are you looking to eat? If you tell me I can better direct you to a great place. I'm not saying that places in the Quarter aren't good, just if you want to pay less and get the same quality of food or even better I can show you where to go. Most places are a short car, streetcar, or cab ride away.

How about Mexican, Superior Grill is great and they have the best margaritas around.

Of course if you want really great local seafood you can try Middendorf's in Manchac but it's an hour drive but worth it. OK I through Middendorf's in just to show you we have a lot of great restaurants outside of the Quarter.

We are wanting to walk, so I thought we would stay around the quarter. Thanks for your help!

Acme Oyster House, if you have been married for a while, start at the oyster bar and try to work your way to the part of the bar where they serve other than oysters(not the sit at tables part). People watching, interchange with the bartenders/shuckers, the people sitting next to you and your partner, are hard to beat, price wise, drink wise and memory wise.

I think my wife ordered 2 drinks all night, the bartenders/shuckers kept pouring her the remainder of wine from bottles that would not fill a glass.

There are lots of good food experiences to be had in New Orleans and if you look there are as many great experiences. As good as the food and music are, it is the people that make New Orleans special.

Doubletree, we plan on running around the quarter, doing a cemetery tour and doing a lot of hanging on Frenchman.
