I have dug through the numerous posts in here re: restaurants et all.

My fiancee and I are spending our honeymoon in your fine city, our hotel is in in the French Quarter. We will have a car but will spend most of our time walking or taking public transport.

Here are a few of my questions:

Where's the Chinatown/Koreatown in NOLA?

Is the Southern Food and Beverage Museum worth checking out?

Are there any Ethiopian restaurants? I've tracked down Tunisian, West African, and Jamaican so far...

I found some listings for banh mi but haven't been able to find a well recommended place for pho - in particular Hue style.

What bars do the punk rockers/goths/rockabilly/rude boys/tattooed lunatics hang out in?

Where can my fiancee and I get a nice quiet - aka grown up/pleasant atmosphere/lack of the stench of urine and vomit - drink?

What style of BBQ do you guys lean towards: pork or beef? Over my last decade in Texas I'm kind of filled to the gills on brisket and beef ribs.

Is the Dixie Brewery still MIA?

And finally out of this list what should I prioritize and/or avoid:

Voodoo BBQ
French Market Farmer's Market
Creole Creamery
Tommy's Cuisine
Joey K's
The Joint
West Indies Cafe
ACME Oyster House
Cafe Du Monde (the fiancee wants to take me there)
Mother's Restaurant
Deanie's Seafood
The Rusty Nail
Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop
Aunt Tiki's
Dong Phuong Oriental Bakery
Kim Son
Pho Quang
The Red Sea
Verti Marte
Praline Connection

whew...I better have a second stomach installed.

I appreciate all your help. Cheers to ya.
