Using lunches to "explore" NOLA and dinners for relaxation/dinners/drinking. Here's the itinerary:
Day 1: Check-in and dinner at Le Meritage
Day 2: St Charles Streetcar and lunch at Boucherie; dinner at Mr B's Bistro
Day 3: French Quarter/Royal St and lunch at NOLA; Drinks at Hermes Bar, dinner at Pelican Club
Day 4: Jazz Brunch at Commander's Palace/explore Garden District; dinner at Herbsaint
Day 5: Jazz Brunch at Muriel's/explore Jackson Square; dinner at Emeril's Delmonico
Day 6: CBD and lunch at Bon Ton Cafe; Drinks at Carousel Bar, dinner at Criollo at Monteleone
Day 7: Magazine St and lunch at Atchafalaya; Drinks at French 75 and dinner at GW Fins

Being a first-time tourist to NOLA, I would like to avoid being treated like one; ie: getting seated next to the bathroom or losing my waiter for an hour. I have lived in NYC and now Las Vegas, understand the nature of the restaurant/tourism business and the downfalls of not being a "regular"...I also believe that great service can be a "crapshoot" and look to service as being less important than the quality of the food and the ambiance of my dining surroundings....With that being said, if someone would like to make a change to my food itinerary based upon all 3 qualities (not unlike a Zagat review), I would be grateful for the suggestions.
