NYC Foodie First Time (Birthday) Trip to New Orleans April 11-16

jammer9050 | Mar 12, 2012 03:19 PM

Hey everyone, I'm traveling to New Orleans for the first time for my 30th birthday on April 11-16. Staying at the W French Quarter. I'm a huge foodie and can think of no better city in which to celebrate. I've done a ton of research so far and have the following reservations:

Dinners:
Bayona
Herbsaint
Cochon
August

Lunch:
Commanders Palace

I want at least one po' boy experience (probably more), a trip to a soul food place like Willie Mae's, and the obligatory trip to Cafe Du Monde.

My question is, how do you feel about the lineup? Should I add/subtract anything? I was thinking about adding another old school place like Galatoire's for lunch, but I will not be happy if it's good atmosphere with mediocre food. Also, I'm going with my girlfriend, who basically enjoys chicken and only chicken, and has already told me that since it's my bday, she will forgo the usual complaining about food and will go along for the ride.

I'm sure I'll think of more questions as the comments (hopefully) pour in, but would love to hear from some natives (and offer NYC restaurant advice if needed!!!)
