Heading to NOLA early April (Thursday-Sunday) for the first time w/ about 8-10 College Buddies (all late 20's) Have gotten some great ideas from this site and am trying to put together dining/drinking itinerary. Looking for a few ideas /recomendations on the following
Cochon for lunch- Place looks great and have read amazing things. Besides food, is this place casual for Fri lunch? Thinking the small plates sound great for sharing. Can you eat and have a few cockers here for about $40 per person?
Bars-Good local spots to get lost in for an afternoon or pregame? Not looking for tourist haunts but good solid spots with cold beer, good eats (don't have t be the best of NOLA but available and good) and music (jukebox a plus)
Late night eats in French Quarter-Po Boys & Mufaletta, etc...
Coffee & Beignets in Fr Qtr-Who makes the best?
Also any recomendations on Bars w/ Good Live Music?
