My husband and I are planning our second trip to New Orleans in late March 2003. The first time we visited there, we ate at a restaurant somewhere close to Bourbon called Ralph and Kasoo's (not sure if the spelling is right!!. The best steak dinner I've EVER had and awesome service to boot. I was wondering if anyone knows if that restaurant is still there???

It's closed, thank God. Ralph & Kacoos was terrible.

I ate at a place called The Alpine and it was really good. I forget where it was though...close to Bourbon I'm pretty sure.

For a great but pricey experience try K-Paul's. For something more casual I would recommend Mike Anderson's, the oysters and crawfish etoufee were outstanding. Another great place, though more for appetizers and cocktails is the little wine bar across the street from the Bourbon Orleans.

Why do you say Ralph & Kacoo's is closed? It was open a few months ago, and the web site is curent. I recommend Deanie's as a reasonably priced place to go. The food was excellent, service outstanding and I agree the boiled red potatoes beat the heck out of a piece of bread. Ever since eating there, I have tried to duplicate the recipe at home.

Definately Acme, I allways bring my friends there to get an inexpensive but decent sampling of New Orleans cuisine.

if you go to and go to webcams, and click on Oyster Cam, you can see Acme oyster bar live.

It really is a fun place and I think the BEST oysters probably in the US.

I think the poster says Ralph & Kacoos is closed because it IS! It's been closed for six weeks or so. The one in the suburbs closed long before that.

Spent the weekend in New Orleans. Acme Oyster House closed for private party Friday night and too full on Saturday. So Friday we went to Deanie's. Very good, but tooooo much food. No red, boiled potatoes though. Felix's instead of Acme on Saturday. Just okay. Service trying hard for busy night, but glassware wasn't too clean. Lunch at Fiorella's Cafe was wonderful.

My two cents - Acme Oyster Bar. Great oysters and great atmosphere. Let the good times roll!

duh: NOLA is one of Emeril's restaurants, and I agree with Monica - we were there last September and were very unhappy with the food!

In addition to Mike Andersons, Acme Oyster House, Gumbo Shop, Deanie's, I would like to add Palm Court Jazz Cafe. The food is good (not great) but the live jazz and fun atmosphere are great, and it is a good experience. Once again, none of these restaurants are fancy, but all are good. Forgot about the Alpine, and we were there last week for the first time in years. It was good too.

When I think "casual restaurant" I definitely would not include NOLA (For Duh: It's a restaurant and also an abbreviation for New Orleans LousianA), or K-Paul's in that category. I would add my vote for Mike Anderson's on Bourbon.

In fact, my favorite cheap lunch is the Mike Anderson's in the food court at the Convention Center shopping mall. Scoff if you want to, but the same meal costs more than twice as much on Bourbon Street.
