Short Trip - "Lazy Weekend" of Mardi Gras

lakshmidas | Feb 19, 2014 04:38 PM

Coming to New Orleans for the Mardi Gras "lazy weekend." Arriving on Friday, but late in the afternoon - and my partner wants to just get poboys and watch the parades (hotel is on the parade route on St. Charles). That leaves Saturday and Sunday:

So far, I've booked:

Saturday:
Lunch: Cochon
Dinner: Luke

Sunday:

Brunch: La Petite Grocery

Dinner: Emeril Delmonico (Is this worth it? One plus is that it's very close to our hotel.)

I'm open to all suggestions - changes or deletions.

I thought it would be best to stay away from the Quarter - both because of the crowds, and also because I found it amazingly disappointing during my last trip.

For reference, restaurants I have loved in the past: Atchafalaya, Boucherie, Upperline, Bayona

I'd consider revisiting one I've been to before, but would rather explore new ones.

I've heard August praised to the skies, as well as Stella -- also have heard good things about Coquette.

Any thoughts? All are welcome. Thanks!
