I collect teapots so I'm planning on visiting New Orleans craft galleries along with eating delicious meals. I have the names of a couple of galleries including locations plus gallery names with no locations (listed below). I'll be doing my gallery crawl after lunch so my question is: What great restaurant is located close to any of the galleries below? That gallery will become my starting point.
I'm not inclined to stand in a major line to get a seat or make a purchase, but other than that I'm open to all suggestions.
Nuance Lousiana Artisan Gallery in the Riverbend area
(where St. Charles and Carrollton Avenues curve into one another)
Lousiana Artworks in the Warehouse District
Thomas Mann Gallery -- location ???
Carol Robinson Gallery -- location ???
Southern Craft and Design at New Orleans Odgen Museum of Southern Art --
If I can't visit all the galleries listed, which ones would you recommend I make sure to visit considering my primary focus is ceramic teapots?
And one last food question: Are there any good pastry shops/cafes/whatevers near any of the other galleries for a mid-afternoon snack?
