JBR.....still full. And Herbsaint was thumbs down.

I feel like Herbsaint is just not a good place for vegetarians. I took one there, and she ended up eating fish even though she would rather not. I love love love Herbsaint, so, I hate to hear bad experiences.

I did a search on this and ran across a thread about it, but it is a few years out of date.

Any thoughts on Mexican in the city other than Juan's? I don't have an issue with Juan's, I am just looking for Mexican and not hippie/rocker Mexican.

I had some awesome....something or other from a taco truck in the lower 9th ward, but it is a bit out of my way and I haven't come across it since. Has anyone tried the colorful one that hangs out on S. Claiborne?

How about that restaurant beside Angelo Brocatos?

Any other ideas?

August on a budget

I know this problem has already been solved, but I was thinking....if I was out with someone and my bill was higher (which should be obvious) I would never -dream- of splitting the check 50/50. That is insane! How tacky! Do people really do that?

is brennan's for brunch overrated?

Several years before I moved here, I came for my honeymoon. We did brunch at Brennan's. I loved it so much. I really felt like the staff was awesome, the food was great, and I drank way way too much milk punch. We ended up there a second time that week. Six months later I came back and the bar tender remembered my husband and I. Maybe I have a bias opinion because it was such a magical week for me, but I will always have a soft spot for Brennan's.

Four meals decided, but one bourbon-fueled wild card left

Luke has great apps/rawbar/desserts and sorta blah entrees. That is probably where I would go if I was in your position.
