Great food, but not fine dining.

HI

Coming in with 8 girls for a Bachelorette and 40th Birthday party in 3 weeks.. I have booked 3 Muses and Brennans already. I need 2 more restaurants that are great, but not fine dining. These girls will have probably had some daytime drinking under their belt. Someplace fun, $$ to $$$ price and in the FQ, just to keep it close.

Thanks for the ideas!!

Michelle

1. Re: Great food, but not fine dining.

Muriel's is, IMHO, right at the borderline, being "upscale casual." Great food, at upper-medium prices, in a lovely venue.

Now, I like Felix's, and it is very casual. Menu is limited, compared to Muriel's, but very good Gumbo, and Fried Shrimp, Oysters and Softshells (when in season).

We recently had a very nice Lunch at Tableauu, but do not recall seeing their Dinner menu. Style seemed similar to Muriel's, but might change a bit, in the evening?

Good luck,

Hunt
