K all, so I have planned my trip to NO in a couple of weeks and my itinerary is pretty much set with the exception of Monday. We will be flying out back to NY at 6pm and want to have a nice lunch before we go. Since the flight is late, we will be able to enjoy a nice leisurely lunch at around 1:30 or thereabouts. I have reservations at Emeril's currently, but am considering other options. One thing is we do not want to travel too far from the hotel obviously, because we need to go back to get our bags before we leave. So nothing in the Garden District or too far outside of the FQ. Here are some others I am considering. Where would you choose?
Luke, Cochon, Willie Mae's (maybe be too far), Restaurant August (I'm sure you will all recommend this), Brennan's for some brunch.
I know the choices kind of run the gamut from inexpensive to fine dining, but price is not an issue. Just looking for the best suggestions on food and experience since this will be my last day in New Orleans.
