Brigtsen's, Cochon, or Mr. B's for Saturday night??

PhillyCook | Sep 7, 2011 08:54 AM

I'm going to NO for the first time this weekend and frantically planning out my meals -- and I need advice!

Friday night we get in kind of late -- have a 10 pm reservation at August, where I plan to definitely order the foie gras three ways. Any other must haves?

Saturday night is up in the air. Mind you, I don't even know if any of these places have reservations available, but I'm teetering between Brigtsen's, Cochon, or Mr. B's. I'd love some help with this decision. Our hotel is in the French Quarter, so while I love the idea of Brigtsen's, it does mean a longish street car ride. The other two are much closer -- and I want to be sure to have the energy to go to Fritzel's for some jazz.

Sunday brunch I have a reservation for the Commander's Palace.

The rest of the question is where to grab a terrific po boy or two on Saturday afternoon while strolling around, trying to build up an appetite between these decadent meals?

Thanks for your help!
