Hello fellow Chowhounds!
My boyfriend and I are coming Dec 4th through 8th for a mini vacation to check out the Prospect 1 exhibits and to see the city lit up for the holidays with things like Celebration in the Oaks. A good friend and former local already suggested Oysters at the Bourbon House bar and Deanies for just really good quick seafood. Do you guys agree with this? Do you have other suggestions particularly around the sites for Prospect 1 or near the Hampton Inn on Carondelet Street? We have both been to New Orleans before but that was at least 7 years ago and did the touristy Bourbon Street stuff. This time we want to come experience the real taste of New Orleans that the locals love.
Thanks for any suggestions they are much appreciated! Hope you are all having a good day!
