Hello! We will be travelling to New Orleans with a group of 20 people to take a big family cruise. We have a couple of young families going with us that have been scrimping and saving just to take the cruise, and I don't want them to have to worry about paying for an expensive dinner the night before on top of that.
But...we also want to be able to have some great food for our night in NOLA! Is there a good, cheap, authentic restaurant that you can recommend? It doesn't necessarily have to be in the French Quarter, but that's preferrable. We are staying in Mettaire but heading to the FQ that evening.
