Yet another visit to New Orleans: what am I missing?

zin1953 | Oct 21, 2008 05:50 PM

I visit New Orleans at least once a year, sometimes twice, and dining is (of course!) an essential focus.

This year's visit had to get pushed back one month, so we're not arriving until mid-November and had to shorten the duration of our stay a bit. So, with seasonal cuisine being what it is, and certain dishes coming available (or disappearing), I hope no one will object if I put forth a rough sketch of our plans for your critique and suggestions . . . .

We arrive late in the afternoon on a Thursday . . .

Thursday dinner reservations are at Iris (in their new location at 321 N. Peters St. -- they'll open there in less than a week).

Friday lunch is at Galatoire's -- as always.

Friday dinner remains open . . .

Saturday dinner is Bayona.

Sunday dinner is at MiLa.

Monday lunch is at Herbsaint, and Central Grocery provides the muffaletta for the flight home.

Given that we've been to ____________ (see below) before, we were looking at some places that are NEW (to us) for the open lunch and Friday dinner slots, and are open to your suggestions . . .

Restaurants we have been to previously (and are therefore "off" the list for this trip) include:
Arnaud's
Brennan's
Brigsten's
Cochon
Irene's
Jacques-Imo's
K-Paul's
La Petite Grocery
Martinique Bistro
Mr. B's
Upperline
Vizzard's
Restaurant August
Stella!

I'm sure will hit Rambla at some point as we are (as always) staying at the International House. And at some point, we'll hit Arnaud's 75 for Sazeracs -- unless someone has a better recommendation . . .

But what are we missing???

TIA,
Jason
