Naw.    They'd just fill in the chinks.

Only have the alligator if you've never tried it before. No matter how well they prepare it, it will still be alligator. [As you can guess, I didn't think much of it when I had it at Dominique's, in Washington, DC, many years ago.]

Tastes like chicken.     Prés salés chicken.

I have always enjoyed alligator, on the basis that I am happier eating it than having it eat me.

 

Ditto shark.

Still a good recommendation.

Between that and "gimme a pig foot and a bottle of beer" you pretty much have a complete dietary program.

What restaurant(s) located near Hotel Ponchartrain would be recommended that have good food and well-priced wine on a week night?

Commander's Palace is relatively close. 

 

How far afield would you be willing to go?

I prefer to be able to walk but a short Uber would work.

 

I've heard some VERY favorable comments from NOLA friends about The Caribbean Room there in Hotel Ponchartrain...a John Besh venue.  Looking online brings up favorable reviews as well.

 

La Petite Grocery has been an interesting recommendation from some people but I haven't looked into it.  Given the name, it doesn't sound like a "dinner/wine" destination.

August by John Besh looked nice, just walking past.

Cochon was very jolly. Killer frying on the boudin.

Stunned by Felix's. The one room I remember is still recognizable, but the post-Katrina expansion around the corner onto Bourbon St, with two more dining rooms, and a second floor, was unexpected. Killing it: slammed on Monday night. Good for them.

It's been so long for me, I'm mainly checking off places as "still there." From Chris Owens to Lafitte's. Startled that half of Bourbon St is completely dug up. You might think the city would have fixed the road a block at a time. No sign it's reduced tourist traffic though.

Weather: like 86 degrees and 80% humidity. Refreshing!
