Trip in July 05

My husband and I along with another couple will be in New Orleans in July. We will be staying at at a B&B on Esplanade Ave. Can anyone of you tell me if that location is safe to walk to and from Bourbon St. at night? Also, where is the best place to get Lobster as well as Shrimp for dinner? Thanks so much for any help.

Where on Esplanade?

River to, say, 800 block is okay. Past that is probably beyond my personal comfort zone for walking.

July in New Orleans? Take a taxi with A/C! ;) I agree that some areas are OK for walking at night, but play it safe and take a cab. I don't really go to New Orleans for lobster, but GW Fins is a great upscale seafood place.
