I have the last few weeks on tripadvisor planning our visit to NO in March. I came up with a list of favorite restaurants from the reviews and the forum. Coming to chowhound I was really surprised how different the views are. Many of the "must do's" on TripAdvisor are not even mentioned here on chowhound.
Also, after reading some of the forums here, it seems a bit scary walking around NO at night. My wife and I are pretty reserved and would like to do a bit of night life with music and some drinks - not hard partying though. Are we OK to wander the FQ and check out the night life?
Here is a list of places we thought we would visit (some really casual and some more formal) based on what we read in TripAdvisor. We are there for 8 days so we have time to check out a bit of everything.
-Muriels also Acme Oyster, Deanies Seafood, Praline
The big ones I hear on Chowhound are Stellas, August, Cuvee, Brigtsens, Dante, Cochan
Why the big discrepancies? Any suggestions? Thanks in advance to all of you!
