We have been visiting New Orleans for one month now (with one more to go). I have eaten at great restaurants Brightsen's, Cochon, Herbsaint, Stella, August (not great but very good) etc. and not such great restaurants - Luke for us was not very good but maybe it was an off night.
We would like to get outside of New Orleans to try something different. What are the places that we should try? We would like to go to the bayou. Is there any there that you would recommend? We have a car so we could travel most anywhere.
By the way Brightsen's is on fire right now. The food is the best I have ever had there and to me it is always good!!
