Am getting down to the final tweaks now and am very excited. I posted a while back about Root and had very helpful replies. One of the respondants - TedyB -helped me in that in New Orleans I want to get my fix of New Orleans food. Coming from London we have fantastic restaurants - but we don't have Cajun and Creole restauraunts.
So I've come up with the following. In the past when we've been in NO we've pretty much stuck to the FQ - and I make no apologies for this - I LOVE IT! But this time we want to see more of NO and try different areas adn in only 3 days. My loves are drink food and music - so New Orleans is heaven for me!
So here goes:
Sat: Arrive late afternoon
Drinks in FQ
Brigstens or Jaques Imo for dinner (I'd prefer something lively and buzzy - Jaques?)
Freret St (Cure) for cocktails
Bloody Mary!! (Columns perhaps)
Garden District walk
Commanders Palace Brunch (this is absolutely unmoveable!)
Frenchman St for music/cocktails
3 Muses for late snack
Advice here for a light lunch - gumbo perhaps - in FQ or anywhere near WW2 museum.
Cochon for dinner (any recommendations for drinks around Cochon)
Stanley for breakfast (its near hotel).
