Food choices in French Quarter after 8:00 pm plane arrival

Our flight arrives at 8:00 pm on a Friday. We are staying at a hotel on Carondelet and Canal Street, and meeting up with family who will have arrived a day earlier. Looking for a not-too-fancy bar that also serves classic New Orleans food after 9:00 pm within 15 minutes walking distance from our hotel. Hoping to make the most of our meals in the city, as we are only here for a few days before our cruise. Thanks in advance!

There are several places that fit your description. One is Huck Finn's in the 100 block of Decatur; it's a sports bar that serves decent food. Another is Daisy Duke's in the 100 block of Chartres, and next door is Jimmy J's. These two are open 24 hrs. .... no frills....just standard grub. If your arrival and transport to hotel are punctual, you may be on time for Palace Cafe on Canal.....very near. It is much more upscale than the other places I mentioned, and there are sidewalk tables that are great for people watching if the weather is favorable. There's also a bar inside. I believe the kitchen closes at 10:00. If you want to go farther into The Quarter, there are more options and most would be less than a 15 min. walk.

Luke serves contemporary New Orleans food. Dominica serves Itallian with a NOLA twist. Both are upscale but casual, with skilled bartenders, close to your hotel, considered among New Orleans' best, and open until 11, although you would probably want to get there closer to 10. Reservations wouldn't hurt.

For something VERY casual, almost a dive, Déjà Vu is a 24/7 table service restaurant with full service bar serving simple New Orleans classics, about 4-5 short blocks from your hotel.

Another option, very nearby in the 100 block of Bourbon St., is Red Fish Grill. The bar menu is available until 11:00 on Friday and Saturday. It's a good blend of casual and classy, and my DH loves their barbecue oysters. They have a dessert specialty, Double Chocolate Bread Pudding, that is one of my favorite New Orleans treats.

Verti Marte is a great choice for a late night meal! They even deliver and you could always sit in the hotel's court yard and enjoy that way!

Oceana Grill is awful! Check out the Kitchen Nightmares episode about that place.

There are lots of suspicious reviews, (probably by employees), propping the place.
