Advice and feedback for first trip

travellerjb | Jul 2, 2014 04:00 PM

Very, very excited about a first trip to New Orleans in August! We want to sample as much as possible and love fish and seafood.

After lots of research I've have booked the following for our week long stay:
GW Fins - dinner
Galatoires - dinner
August - lunch
Commodore's Palace - Saturday brunch
Upperline - dinner

Were booked at Herbsaint, but they will be under renovations, so have changed this to Peche.

Also planning a cheese tasting lunch at St James Cheese company, poboy at Johnnys and a Muffaletta from Central Grocery or Cochon, barbeque shrimp at Mr B's, perhaps a lucn at Muriel's, beignets at Cafe du Monde and an evening on Frenchman Street.

Activities include a Ninth Ward Rebirth Bike trip and a Cajun Adventures Swamp tour as well as a visit to the Sunday Jazz mass at St Augustine Church.

Any improvements or suggestions you can provide to our planned activities or restaurants would be very appreciated. We are also considering Brigstens, but would have to cancel one of the other dinners to find time (and room).

Thanks very much!
