Advice needed - late October trip to NO

Jennifer Lehr | Oct 5, 2001 03:34 PM

We will be in NO 10/25-11/3. We have an anniversary on Sunday, 10/28. We are seafood lovers. We will be a party of 3 adults for most of the trip.

We have a 9-person party looking for a good place for dinner on Halloween or 11/1 or 11/2, and are having a hell of a time finding anyplace that has an opening.

Any suggestions for a celebration (party of 3) on 10/28 - should we do brunch, lunch, or dinner? I note that many places are closed on Sundays. Of those that are open on Sunday, what's good? We don't need anything fancy for this meal. We prefer non-touristy places when we travel.

Any suggestions for 10/31, 11/1 or 11/2? 10/31 is actually a 60-year anniversary for one couple in our party so we were hoping for something that evening - we have several people working on this but so far no luck.

We plan to check out Mandina's, Uglesich's, Mr. B's, Gabrielle, Bayona, Old Dog New Trick (the veg place - we're into good vegetarian food as well as seafood - any other veggie suggestions?) Any other recommendations would be helpful.

We're also looking for suggestions on where to go for music (love blues, jazz, Cajun/Zydeco, alternative) or just hanging and having a few cocktails. We'll be in town for 9 days so we have lots of time. We'll have a car the first two days.

What's the weather usually like in NO late Oct./early Nov.? We'll be staying in the Quarter near the French Marketplace. We have a kitchen where we're staying - any suggestions on where to shop for food & liquor/beer/wine for the room?

Thanks for any help you can give!!!!!
