Please Advise on My Upcoming Trip Picks

My husband and I will be in New Orleans this Saturday through Wednesday. I've researched the boards and my picks are as follows:

Dinners -
Restaurant August
Green Goddess

Lunches -
Cochon Butcher
Willie Mae's Scotch House

I'm debating on whether or not to get the degustation menu at August or to choose from the regular menu. I'm particularly interested in the gnocchi, crab tempura, the lamb, and the blueberry pavlova. Can anyone make a recommendation here? Any other standout dishes?

We'll probably do the happy hour pizzas from Domenica for a late lunch/early dinner on one of the days.

I'm really tempted by all the discussion about the deliciousness of Mr. B's barbequed shrimp, but I'm a little intimidated by unshelled shrimp with heads. I wouldn't even know where to begin with how to eat those.

We will also be hitting The Old Coffee Pot for bourbon pecan pie, Leah's Pralines for pralines, and Central Grocery for muffs to take home with us.

I'd love any comments and specific dish recommendations on my picks. Am I going wrong anywhere here? Anything else I should consider?

That's a lot of questions! Thanks!
