Hi All -
I am getting married in New Orleans next year and am trying to find a place for a rehearsal dinner May 15, 2009 for about 40-45 people.
Unfortunately we have three major issues 1) it is Loyola/ Tulane graduation, so there is a lot that is already booked 2) it needs to be wheelchair accessible (so that cuts out a lot in the FQ) and 3) of course it needs to be good!
My fiancé and I would like to keep it in the "spirit of the city" so would like to stay away from Italian etc. We would also like it to be somewhere in the FQ (rehearsal at St. Louis Cathedral right before dinner) or accessible by the street car so that we don't have to worry about hiring transportation.
Muriel's and Broussard's are out b/c they are the location of our cocktail hour and reception.
The following are also out b/c they are booked or are not accessible - commander's, bayona, napoleon house, galatoire's, august (had a really bad experience the last time we were there), NOLA.....and that is all I can think of now, but I feel like we have crossed off many more. Oh, and we have a call into Herbsaint, so that is still possibly in the running
Any and all suggestions are welcome and appreciated! I am beginning to freak out - haha!
Thanks in advance!
