Airport layover in New Orleans

roz | Jun 28, 2007 07:46 AM

Friends:

This coming Sunday, I'm flying home through New Orleans, and I have a three and 1/2 hour layover at the international airport around dinner time. I've never been to the city before, and I'm wondering if I have enough to take a taxi to and from the city, eat at an interesting restaurant, and get back to the airport. Unless it's really, really expensive, I don't mind the cost of a taxi, I'm pretty motivated to have dinner in the city.

Also, I'd be grateful for a restaurant suggestion of a place open Sunday night, that serves food very distinctive to New Orleans. I'd love to try Creole, I really enjoy duck, and oysters, but I'll eat almost anything. My only limitations are the amount of time I have - also, I won't have an upscale outfit on, so I need a place that won't be bothered if I'm dressed somewhat casually - I'm from Los Angeles, and we have very few restaurants that you need to get really dressed up for, but I don't know what folks generally do in New Orleans.

Thanks for any suggestions!

-Roz
