I'm attending a conference in a couple of weeks--we'll be staying at the Marriott on Canal St. Any suggestions for nearby restaurants (preferably within a few blocks walk)? Since I will be at the conference in the daytime, I'm mainly asking on behalf of my wife, who prefers not to have to walk a lot. (Also, after the conference we'll be moving to the Omni Royal Orleans, so there will be ample time to explore that end of the Quarter together.)
Breakfast and lunch suggestions are especially welcome, and also some places with less-heavy-than-usual food. We know the Palace Cafe is right down the street, but she would rather not eat rich food like that 3 meals a day.
