We are a group of Canadian students heading to Mississippi in february as part of an exchange with USM to work with Habitat for Humanity and FEMA. We will be spending one day in the french quarter of new orleans for R+R. A couple of us are novice foodies on a student budget looking for great eats for lunch on that day. If there was one place in the quarter that everyone must eat at what would it be?
The (few) restrictions:
No dress code
Lunch under 30 dollars
Authentic Louisiana fare
There are a couple of people in the group with food allergies (dairy etc.) so we are looking for the kinda place where special requests will not get a deer-in-headlights response from wait staff.
