We are visiting New Orleans for the 4th time since 2009. I'm completely obsessed with the architecture, culture & food of this city. My husband & I will be bringing our 18 yr old son and his 18 yr old girlfriend. These kiddo's are serious jr. foodies willing to try new things. We have a rental car available for the entire 6 nights. We will be resting our heads at the 5 Continents B & B located at 1731 Esplanade. Owner provides us with a delicious & hearty breakfast so we don't need any food recommends until afternoon/evening. Thank you in advance for any and all suggestions. We are eager to hear any ideas re: activities as well.
Thurs. Dec. 30th; Leaving Salt Lake and arriving in New Orleans around 2:30 p.m. Need a late afternoon/early dinner suggestion.
Fri; New Year's Eve - plan on strolling around the fr. quarter. People watch, fireworks, etc. Prefer something fast and easy (yet obviously delicious). Any opinions on Johnny's Po-Boys? Personal favs/preferences? Maybe grab a muff from Central Grocery?
Sat; 11:30 am - brunch reservation at Commander's. Appreciate a dinner suggestion.
Sun; Attending the Saints vs. Tampa Bay football game. Prefer a casual dinner since I doubt we will want to get all "dressed up" after football.
Mon; Segway tour at noon. Afternoon is free for activity advice. lunch/dinner recommendation.
Tues; Wiiide open. Perfect day for a road trip? Our son loves the show "Swamp People". Maybe something "truly" cajun/bayou?
Thanks for your help. We have previously dined at...Commander's, Emeril's Delmonico, Arnaud, MiLa, Pere Antoine, Irene's Cuisine...We have visited Avery Island (Tobasco tour), plantations - Oak Alley, Laura, Houmas. Sorry for such a long note but I wanted to give our specific travel plans. OK - eager to see any/all replies.
