Hope to get back down there soon. This question is bound to come up so here goes. The new TV series Treme is a big hit across the nation. Are there any chowhound like places in the area? I can't get a handle on it food wise or safety wise through Google. A past experience, going to Dooky Chases a few years ago was very scary (cab driver locked us in the cab while he checked if it was okay, then led us in through the kitchen) makes me a little skittish (and I'm from Detroit so it takes a lot!) though I realize that Treme is not in the same part of town. I'm intrigued by the culture and possibliity for some really fine food. I have no preconceptions, just want an honest opinion or two.
