I will be staying in the Marigny for 6 days and would be grateful for any advice on where to eat for breakfast & dinner. I will likely be dining alone, for the majority of the trip and am a female. As far types of cuisine, I enjoy a wide array , but I do not eat fish (I do like shellfish) , and particularly not sushi nor do I like muffaletas. Aside from that, I am fairly adventurous, as long as the food is tasty and the ambiance is interesting.
I prefer to walk to restaurants (I don't mind walking longish distances, but please advise if neigborhoods are unsafe). I do not care for Bourbon St, or any other place inhabited by annoying frat boys.
As far as price goes, it would be best to keep it reasonable, but I don't mind spending a lot for a genuinely amazing meal. I plan to make an attempt at frugality on this trip, but I am making an exception for Stella! If there are any places comparable to Stella! in quality & atmosphere, then I will consider abandoning my plan to spend less $$$:)
Here is a partial list of places which I have dined at during previous trips :
Court of Two Sisters
A place on Decatur, that has a balcony facing the French Market-I cannot recall the name of this place, but the food was quite tasty
The restaurant at the Hotel St Marie ?(this is across from the Olivier, correct?)
Vic's Kangaroo Cafe
Hmmm, I know there are more, but I can't recall all of them...
Also, where is the best place for coffee? I *despise* CC's coffee, but loved PJ's. Is the PJ's on Frenchman still around?
