I have an aunt who will be staying at the Mariott in the French Quarter during the week of Mardi Gras. While letting her know how jealous I was, she mentioned that her and her co-workers/friends have no idea where to go for food.
I can't speak for my aunt's co-workers or friends, but I know she really enjoys going out to eat at restaurants. She is fairly open to new things, aside from raw fish or the like.
Could any of you native N'orleans-ers reccomend some of your favorite spots? From fancy expensive to extremely casual local "dives" with great food.
Also since Mardi Gras week is crazy to say the least, could you point out which places she should make reservations at asap.
Thanks in advance
