Never been to New Orleans before (I'm a CA boy) and I'm in the beginning phases of doing some planning...It will be a winter trip and we will arrive on a Thursday mid day and depart on Tuesday morning. That gives me 5 dinners and 4 lunches.
Our anniversary trips (we take turns planning for each other every year and keep the trip a surprise until the last minute) is always LARGELY based around food... And at this point I've done NO other pre-planning at all...not till the food part is in place!! :) And yes…it’s my year to plan.
So...I need some help here....any suggestions to other threads and/or names of restaurants would be terrific!
Here is what we like---I'm a vegetarian...but do eat fish...my wife eats everything except fish (she does eat shellfish) We love Asian...we love fusion...we love experiencing new things and foods...We enjoy local’s types of places as much as the “must go to” top restaurants…
I'm open to any price frame....the best food is sometimes the least expensive....although...I'm also looking for some fancy dinner ideas too...as we will be celebrating!!
Thanks for all the help upfront! I’ve used Chowhound for my 10 of our 20 anniversary trips and I have NEVER been steered wrong….
I'm looking at staying at the W in the French Quarter...and not sure if I'm gonna need/want a car or can just get by with Public transportation....looking into that too!!
