I'm a Chicago chowhound visiting New Orleans for a wedding. We'll have two nights (and possibly one lunch) to do our own thing while in town, and I'm looking for suggestions. It's been years since I've been to the city.
A few spots that we are considering based on prior posts are: Brigstens, Stella!, August, Lilette, Cafe Adelaide, Commanders Palace....but I'm open to suggestions. I've ruled out Cochon since I don't eat pork or beef and the menu looks pretty focused.
We are staying in the French Quarter but are open to going elsewhere; we'll be relying on cabs and public transportation.
