Another "Please Critique My Weekend Itinerary" Thread

PlomeekSoup | Apr 28, 2012 10:48 AM

First-time visitor to New Orleans from NYC during May 11-14 (staying at the Roosevelt). I've scoured other threads and have definitely been able to tweak my own choices based on the advice already provided, but I would love a quick eyeballin' of what I've got so far. I am traveling with one other person (originally from SFO), we have no dietary restrictions, and we both want a balance of local classics and modern takes. We both love discovering unique, hidden treasures but appreciate the flair of established places worth the $. For drinks (both refined and divey) we're keen to try Cure, One Eyed Jacks, Lafitte, Carousel, Country Club, Flanagans, d.b.a., etc.

Friday night: drinks at Sazerac, dinner at Arnaud's, explore the FQ

Saturday brunch: Commander's Palace
Saturday dinner: Herbsaint

Sunday: swamp tour in the morning; brunch at La Petite Grocery
Sunday dinner: Lüke

Monday lunch: Cochon

Based on the typical portion sizes unique to NOLA, I've left the afternoons open for neighborhood exploring, either by foot, cable car or rented bicycle (we are not renting a car). If hunger strikes, I'm hoping we can just waltz into the likes of Acme, Cafe Du Monde, The Joint, etc. for snacking. I understand it's a short amount of time to get everything in, but I am looking at this as an "intro" trip and plan to return for a longer stay at another time in the future.
