my husband and i are having a late honeymoon -- we got married in june -- in new orleans, the week after christmas (dec. 26-dec. 31). i've been stalking these boards for ideas about where to eat and what to do, and i have a rough outline of our eating adventure through new orleans.
but i must admit i'm a little overwhelmed. (see: http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF...) and i feel like i'm missing something. and there's some definite holes in our plan. where's the best po boy? the best mufaletta? the best happy hour?
i left out some standbys -- e.g. galatoires, commander's palace -- for various reasons, most likely b/c of dress code or distance, but PLEASE let me know if i'm being foolish and MUST go to this place. cheap but tasty eats get bonus points.
fyi: we're staying at the renaissance arts hotel in the warehouse district, and are planning to get 5-day jazzy passes, so we can have unlimited streetcar/bus rides for most of the time we're there.
so! the plan:
