Another Itinerary (shocker) for first time trip next week - need guidance please...

Hi guys,

I've been reading the boards over the past few weeks and taking lots of notes. I'll be in NOLA for the first time next Wednesday night - Sunday afternoon. My birthday also falls that Friday. I'd like to get my reservations in today, but I'm having a hell of a time narrowing down my list. I was hoping to get a little guidance!

I have all of the oyster stops (Felix's, Acme, Casamento's), the po-boy stops (Parkway, Domilise), and the breakfast/brunch stops (Croissant d'Or, Stanley's Camellia, Coquette), the lunch stops (Mr.B's, Emeril's, Cochon Butcher), and the drink stops (Bouligny, 3 Muses, Hermes, Carousel, Sazerac, French 75, Willie Mae's, d.b.a, Cure, Domenica) but dinner I'm struggling with. I only have 4 nights!!!

1st Choices:
Cochon
Herbsaint
Stella
Galatoire's
Lilette
Gautreau's
Brigsten's

2nd Choices:
Patois
Green Goddess
MiLa
Sylvain
Clancy's
Commander's Palace
Dominique
Meson 923
a Mano
Dante's

Where should I go? Where could I skip? What could I do for lunch instead?
Also - my big question... Do I need to dress up for dinner (I'm female)?

And, not sure if this helps - but I'm staying in the garden district and was planning to mostly bike/walk/street car.

Thanks in advance!
