3 Specific Questions from DC Chowhound

Pappy | Oct 11, 201107:07 AM     17

My wife, son and I are heading down next month for our first trip to New Orleans. I have made almost all of my reservations for lunch and dinner each day, including Cochon, Commander's, August, Antoine's and NOLA.

First question: We arrive about 12 Noon on Saturday. We are staying at the Ritz Carlton. Where should we go (walking) for a casual Po' Boy and a beer? I want a place where I can sit down and have waiter service.

Second question: Our last night (Monday) I reserved at NOLA. Should I change this to Emeril's?

Third question: Other than 3 meals a day, ...and staying pretty much within the city, what are your 2 or 3 favorite tourist spots to visit? Especially as I will have a 10 year old boy with me. (Btw, his favorite food is raw oysters on the half shell!) Any great food/cooking related shops or markets we shouldn't miss?
