Have been in and out of NO a few times over the last few months for work and really enjoying the food (based in FQ / CBD each time). I'm nearing my last visit this coming week, and want to make sure I hit the remaining "must-do's" with my final two dinners (and one final lunch). I'll be a solo diner.
Love love loved Herbsaint on my last visit. (Tried a fried lamb's neck special that was out of this world.)
I've really enjoyed the po' boy at Stanley for my last couple trips, nice relaxed vibe there too. Also have enjoyed the po' boy at Mother's.
Was underwhelmed by Luke on my last visit (felt generic, food was solid but not exceptional). Enjoyed Commander's for the scene and again had a very good-but-not-great meal, had a nice pecan-crusted seafood meal at Brennan's. Hit NOLA one night as it was close to my hotel and had a perfectly good meal at the bar (though not wow'ed).
Some places I'm considering, but would also love to hear recommendations on other must-do's:
In sum... something inventive, something very New Orleans, something I'll miss when my near-monthly trips come to an end... I want a Last Supper!
Thanks in advance.
