I'll be visiting from SF in Feb for five days, staying in the French Quarter, no car, but totally up to walk/public transit...I'm working on a master list of restaurants to go to (so many to choose from!) for Cajun/creole food, and some local institutions. All of it looks delicious, and, well...heavy.
Any ideas for lighter meals out, places for lunch or even breakfast know for fresh produce, baked goods, or even the best grocery stores (Whole Foods is five miles from our hotel, and equivalent closer to the W? ) where I could get a small snack to balance all the delicious and fried meals I can't wait to consume?
Any suggestions are appreciated.
