I live in Baton Rouge so I'm pretty familiiary with Nola, especially the FQ area. That being said, I usually stick to the main/busy part of the FQ and don't really venture in to the residential area. However, I would like to make dinner reservations at Eat for a Friday night while we are there. I have personally never felt unsafe in New Orleans and always use caution, but since Eat is closer to the area where it can be a little less touristy, I was wondering from a local's perspective or opinion:
1) Is the safest route to and from Eat for three younger ladies to walk down Bourbon and take a turn at Lafitte's to Eat?
2) Would you suggest walking back after dinner (dark) as long as we stick to the busier streets, like Bourbon?
