New Orleans Recommendations
There are going to be 10+ of us this weekend and I am looking for dinner recommendations. The catch is I am looking for something a little more upscale than bar food but still want to be able to watch the LSU game.
They will need to accommodate 10 - 12 as well...
My first thoughts were Toups or Gris Gris because we have been wanting to try both but we have not been to either and were not sure about the accommodations.

Call Ye Olde College Inn and ask them what the set up would be. There are multiple TVs there and the food is very good.

re: New Orleans Recommendations
I don’t think Toups has a table to accommodate 10 where you can watch tv.
I always think of Borgne when this question get asked because it has a great set up to watch games but it is a legit sit down restaurant.

It is definitely not bar food. Did you read the menu?

It’s an old school New Orleans neighborhood restaurant. The food is good but it may not be what you are looking for.

If that’s bar food to you, no one can help you.

I’m glad someone printed the menu for you, but the site is easy to read.
