We're visiting in early December for a weekend and are looking for some great restaurant ideas. Ideally, traditional favorites that won't break the bank as I'm sure our cocktail budget far surpasses our food budget. Anything overlooking Bourbon street might be a plus, but I'm totally open to suggestions! Have been to the biggies like Emeril's and Commander's Palace- so am looking for smaller more intimate locales for the true NOLA experience.
Bars I'm making a must-see are: Napolean house, the Blacksmith's bar, Pat O's- but I know there are plenty I'm leaving out- help!!
Thanks in advance for your suggestions!
