Help from the Regulars

Thanks for the suggestion. I like the idea of getting a little bit away from the FQ for dinner, but don't know how my compatriots will feel. But, I love John Besh's take on restaurants.

Checking into these. Thanks. Just, FYI, Meauxbar is closed for summer vacation the last week of August thru first week of September--right when we'll be there!

Help from the Regulars

I'm on my way to NO again for Decadence and need a little help with a restaurant recommendation.

We come 2 or 3 times per year and our itinerary is usually set by our restaurant choices (how else should you do NO?) We've done K. Paul's, Muriel's, Bacco's, Irene's, Snug Harbor, MiLa, Santa Fe, Lola's, even Vine & Dine, plus some others. This trip is pretty much planned out except for dinner on Sunday. The option I'm looking at is GW Fins.

I know the reviews are hit and miss, but it sort of fills the niche we have. Our fish-hater is not coming with us, so fish is a good option this time. But we are meeting two from Florida who have never been to NO, so we don't really know what they might like. So I'm trying to pick the brain of the Chowhound posters to get some alternative suggestions for GWFins. Probably in the same price range (just guessing about people's preference there), for sure in the Quarter (none of us wants to be driving during that particular weekend!), with decent food, decent wine/drinks, nice or cool atmosphere.

I may have to just line up some options and let the visitors pick. Any help would be appreciated!
