I am spending a long weekend in NOLA. It will be my second trip. The first time I tried most of the tourist things (Central Grocery, Acme, Cafe Du Monde) and ate at Emeril's. This time around, based on some info on the board, I made reservations at NOLA and Cochon. I left a free night as well. I am thinking I should check out Mother's and possibly the Palace Cafe. I'd like to stay a short cab ride away from the FQ. Anyone have other suggestions? Did I make the right choices?
Also, I am an avid beer traveler. I spent the last trip in Club Decatur drinking really cheap awesome beer in the sun. Is dba still open? Any other good beer spots around town?
