We are going to be visiting New Orleans for a few short days in mid July, To be more specific we will be arriving in New Orleans on a Monday around 6:00 - 7:00 pm and will be leaving first thing Thursday morning. That gives us just two days and three evenings. I should add that we have never visited before but are really excitied about the trip We have our breakfasts and lunches planned, but dinners are where we are a bit bewildered.
From reading these boards we are just overwhelmed by the choices for restaurants. I'm 99% sure we will be going to the Upper Line on Wednesday for dinner. We made that choice based on recommendations here and other sites, and the menu/ price range suits us well.
But we are still looking for places to have dinner on Monday (seems a lot of places are closed on Monday..is that a real slow day in New Orleans?) and Tuesday. We will be staying just outside the French Quarter but will have a car so we don't mind driving. We are not interested in 'high end' dining, and would like to stick with something with a real local cajun flair. Monday is a real problem because we won't be able to make reservations since we don't know exactly when we will arrive. Tuesday we could make reservations for though.
Oh,we will have our 14 year old daughter with us as well, if that makes any difference. She is NOT a picky eater though, I'm just not sure if some places might be more adult oriented.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
Also, on Thursday we will be in Baton Rouge if anyone has a 'not to be missed rec. for there,
