3 day trip to New Orleans end of September - Need Advice

Tom_Swift | Sep 9, 2012 04:39 PM

My fellow Chowhounders, I live in Boston and have been very impressed with the quality of restaurant advice on this board. I am hoping to get feedback/suggestions for a 3 day weekend trip with my wife (our first trip alone without the kids in too many years!). Our trip is the last weekend in September, and we are staying at the Garden District B&B (Magazine St). We arrive on Fri afternoon, and then fly out Monday afternoon.

We both love food, and tend to prefer modern, inventive and fun cuisine. Our dietary issue is that my wife is pescatarian and keeps kosher, so she eats no meat, but does eat fish but not shellfish or catfish (I eat everything). In general, we've found that a really good restaurant with at least one dish she can eat is better than a less-good restaurant with a lot of vegetarian friendly choices.

Would love to get other Hounds' comments/ suggestions on food, or also any music/other suggestions for that weekend, or in general. Also, we are thinking of spending the morning/early afternoon hiking at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park, so would appreciate comments suggestions on this as well. My draft of an itinerary is below:

Friday (arrive 12:45) possibly late lunch near the hotel
Dinner: Cochon
Cocktails Cure!

Saturday
Jazz brunch at Commander's Palace
Dinner at Green Goddess

Sunday
[Possible morning/early afternoon hiking at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park]

Breakfast/lunch: undecided
Dinner at Dick and Jenny's

Mon
Breakfast/brunch undecided,

Many Thanks!
