Jacques-Imo's or K-Paul's??

Hi all!

I'm going to be traveling to New Orleans in November and am planning out my restaurants. I have one night open, and can't decide between Jacques-Imo's or K-Pauls? Any recommendations. The other two nights for dinner will be Acme (we have a gift certificate) and Louisiana Kitchen for their Feed Me menu.

Thanks in advance!

Very different places. K-Paul's is in the Quarter and is a bit more upscale (though not "fancy") with a traditional cajun menu. Jacques-Imos is uptown ($15-20 cab ride or streetcar ride from the Qtr), is very loud and always crowded and is more of a creole/soul menu.

I would pick KP but nothing wrong with Jacques-Imos.

Oh, and JM does not take reservations for parties under 5. KP does.

Does K-Paul's still have community seating? Haven't been in years...just curious. We love Jacque-Imo's for its funky unique atmosphere, food and good pricing. It would require more of an effort to get there as other posters mentioned.

I think K-Pauls stopped community seating in the mid or late 1990s! A lot of people still think that they have it, though. A friend of mine mentioned it the other day as the reason he doesn't go there.

I was at K-Paul's last November and was very disappointed. Long gone are the community tables ... and the charm! The food was just OK, but not what I remember from years ago. I'm afraid it's one of those examples of "got too fancy for it's own good". Too bad.
