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.
Mudbug boil 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.
