I'm going to be in NOLA (sorry, staying in French Quarter) in two weeks and was wondering if you had some great recommendations for destination lunches outside of the city. I feel like I've seen a ton of Anthony Bourdain/Travel Channel/Mind of a Chef/etc segments on awesome, authentic Cajun food places that aren't too terribly far from the city. I'll have a car and am happy to drive.
I know I'm being a bit vague, but basically what I'm looking for is an authentic cajun cookout, where I can really experience the local cuisine. I'll eat anything, and want to try everything. I don't care about the setting, decor, or need any tablecloths. The more local the better. As long as the food is great, I'm a happy camper.
