My wife and I arrive in New Orleans tomorrow around 10 pm after a long couple of flights. Plan is to hustle straight over to Vaughn's to catch Kermit Ruffins. By the time we're finished, I figure we'll be starving. The question: What are our options for getting some decent food after 2-3 a.m.? Are there options? We'll have a car (staying near airport actually...hitting NOLA for just a couple days, going to beach at Gulf Shores for a week then back to New Orleans for a real visit for five days after that...expect more questions later), so location isn't a huge deal. We're not looking for anything fancy, just some options for a decent late-night bite to kick off our vacation.
Also locals: In your opinion, is it safe to park/walk in that part of Bywater or are we better off parking and cabbing it from Quarter or CBD?
