I am super excited to be planning a trip for mid December. I am in the culinary industry and eating is my favorite part of traveling, but the last time we were in town, we definitely overdid it with trying to squeeze in too much. This time, I am looking to budget a bit more and not each so much that I can't appreciate it all. Also looking to limit the upscale. Hard not to indulge in such a great city!
I like a mix of casual and upscale and think one reveillon dinner would be fun. Last time we hit Mila, Bayona, August, Commander's for Brunch, Stella, Stanley, Galatoire's, Mr. B's, Cochon, Willie Mae's, Central Grocery, Coop's, Acme and Café du Monde.
I am highly considering Atchafalya for jazz brunch, Domenica for happy hour, Herbsaint, Cochon Butcher, Casamento's, Jacque imo's OR Boucherie for dinner, Parkway Bakery and Kermit Ruffin's Treme Speakeasy.
Considering revisiting Mr. B's for jazz brunch, Café du Monde, Willie Mae's, Coop's and Stanley.
On my maybe list are Restaurant Revolution, Killer Po Boys, Elizabeth's,.SoBou, Red Gravy, EAT, McClure's BBQ, Buffa's for brunch, Mondo, The Company Burger and Maurepas Foods.
Any help you could provide would be appreciated! I am thinking we would be in town for 5 days, 4 nights.
