Hi New Orleans- and NO-loving Hounds,
We’re a family of four coming to NO for vacation in mid-April. Looking forward to great eats, thanks to this board we are hoping to try Cochon Butcher, Sylvain, Peche, and Galatoire’s for dinners. But please help me with the latter. We’re early evening diners (6ish, our kids are fancy restaurant veterans but will start to droop by 9 so sophisticated late night is not yet an option), so what is your sense of a wait at that hour? What if we go on Easter Sunday – will that be a different story? And, dress code – would my 13 y.o. son be expected to be jacket-clad? He’s game for anything, but sartorially challenged.
Beignets are also on the list to introduce to the kids, as are muffalettas, but we welcome additional suggestions for easy lunches and dinners. We eat just about anything. (Well, the aforementioned 13 y.o. is not yet on to oysters, but we have hope. The 9 y.o., not so much.) Staying at the Roosevelt.
