Glad to hear Mena's is still open! Awesome place, just a hole in the wall, but they had the best etouffee in town (I think, anyway!). Is the place next door still open - think it was Cuban Kitchen or Cuban Flame maybe?

get your muffaletta at Napoleon House. central grocery makes a good sandwich, but it's a....grocery. Nap. House is a real restaurant in a cool space. yes, you may have to deal with occasionally snooty waiters (think Paris), but that has its own charms on good days, and you may grow to appreciate why N. house is also one of my favorite places for a drink. just a more inviting space than the grocery--which you should still check out and where you can buy the olive salad if you want, just not where I would sit down for a nice lunch
--totally agree with acme, but it too is more of a lunch place
--pricier (much, but not off the charts), but nice is the Pelican Club, closer to Canal
Irene's used to be a real gem and I think they are still open. no reservations, though so don't try a busy night, not bad to wait if it's only 45 minutes as there's piano player. another nice space/place. def. "romantic" for the FQ (i.e. no where is really intimate, but Irene's pulls off the small tucked away feeling well enough
if you can get a reservation at bayona's or bacco's they fall into the same category as pelican, not cheap and no gator on the menu, but fine "modern" louisiana cuisine
--be aware that the marigny area is adjacent to the FQ and has more real music clubs and some good places to eat as well. not a bad walk unless you're all the way up the river at canal, then it's still do-able but a good hike. don't forget you can take the streetcar uptown as well.
the food section of nola.com has many , many reviews and top 10 lists, and most menus are found on line. bon appetit

^^Acme is not just a lunch place. Hours are 11am-10pm from Sunday to Thursday and 11am-11pm on Friday and Saturday. The place is very busy at supper time.

had a pretty good dinner last night at the brew pub (crescent city brewhouse); perfect baked oysters and a soft shell crab with crawfish in a spicy butter sauce ladeled on top. can't beat that and it was fairly reasonable, considering it's in the middle of the quarter ($10 appetizer, $20 entree). the oyster club sandwich with spinach and bacon sounded good too for 14.95. live jazz too. gotta love this town. it's good to be home ! (and the saints in the super bowl? pinch me)
