7 Days of Eating... Planning Stage

oiboy | Dec 12, 201601:06 AM     4

My wife and I are planning to visit New Orleans for a week in mid February.

Right now I'm in my initial planning stage. I've been there about 7 years ago but was on a very tight budget which afforded me very few "splurge" meals. This trip will be a more financially relaxed affair. While I like fine dining I do not necessarily prefer high end restaurants to hole in the wall places. Creole cuisine is up there with my favorite.

So far on my list I have:

Antoines for their Oyster Rockafeller and soufle potatoes

Commanders Palace for their turtle soup.

Pascale Manale's for BBQ Shrimp

Drago's for char-grilled oysters

Brennans for bananas foster

K-Pauls for their blackened drum.

Domilise's for their po-boys

Willie Mae's or Dooky's for fried chicken

Off The Dock in La Place for a seafood boil (on our way back from visiting plantations)

Cafe du Monde for beignets

Still trying to find a good crab/okra gumbo place.
stuffed mirliton
Mudbug boil place?
Jambalaya place?
Best red beans and rice?
Cochon de lait?
Valentines Day romantic dinner spot?(booked Antoine's but may cancel as my wife has an aversion to butter wouldn't matter on most days but this one)

Any suggestions on some places?

Also some good jazz clubs that are outside of the Quarter.

Want good food will travel...

Thanks!

Commander's Palace
Pascal's Manale
Drago's - Hilton Riverside
Brennan's
K-Paul's Louisiana Kitchen
Domilise's Po-Boy & Bar
Willie Mae's Scotch House
Dooky Chase Restaurant
