Foodie's first trip to New Orleans and needs advice!!

Hey All!

I am a foodie (based in NY) and planning my very first trip to your lovely city of New Orleans in March. I was hoping to get some advice so that every meal counts. Please let me know what you think of my suggested food itinerary -- I have also included some questions below. Also, please keep in mind that my bf is vegetarian, so we can only go places where are are at least a few veg options (I really wanted to go to Willy Mae's but it doesn't look like they have any veg dishes).

Here is the food itinerary I am thinking of so far:

Three Dinners:
1. August
2. Dante's Kitchen
3. Couchon or Brigtsens - Which would you pick? Is there a place I am over looking? Is Couchon the best place to try Cajun food? Does Brigtsens have veg food?

Three lunches:
1. What is the best Po'boy place to go? It seems like Liuzza's by the track, Domilise's and Parkways are some of the top places? I'd like to go to one of them. What is the best?
2. Galatoires -Is this better for lunch or dinner? If dinner, which one of my dinner options should I substitute out or switch to lunch/brunch to include Galatoires?
3. Lil'Dizzys: I've heard this is a great place to go for Sunday Brunch?! Do they have veg options?

And of course, I also plan on going to Cafe Du Monde for Breakfast and to Angelo Brocato's for gelato.

Let me know what you think! Thanks in advance!
