I'm loving the recs on all these out of the Quarter places. I am heading back with a friend in mid June and will do my best to get her out of the "traditional" Quarter to some of these places. Side question: Parking in the Quarter....other than parking in front of my friends Lakeview rebuild, any suggestions on "reasonable" parking rates in the Quarter? The Sonesta wants 30.00 per. Again, thanks for all the info....going to the Columns for a drink, Mandina's or Parkway for po-boys and Frenchmen St. for FuN! I've been to Snug Harbor and enjoyed myself too much that I lost a morning! Marigny or Elizabeth's sounds great for breakfast/brunch. You guys are great! I know this is a foodie site...but the info on parking could be rallied into another decent feast. Thanks!
