I'm here in NOLA for a single day with my two college buddies and we're looking for the quintessential NOLA dining experience. Oysters are a must (saw that thread), but we're also looking for some great creole food. We're staying in the Quarter, but we're willing to walk a ways to dinner if need be. We're all students, so we're hoping for somewhere not super expensive (less than $30 a piece).
If you only had a single meal in New Orleans, where would it be?
