Four days in July - how's my itinerary?

chris | Jun 7, 2010 12:36 PM

My wife and I are planning our first trip to New Orleans in July and I am looking for critiques/advice on our plans. The way I see it, this is our first time, we might as well hit the institutions, touristy or not.

The following is our itinerary for meals (between meal 'drop ins' like Felix's or Cafe du Monde we're just going to hit when we walk past):

Dinner - "arrival" at 3:30 pm. We're taking Amtrak, so I'm hesitant to make a reservation anywhere in case we pull in at midnight. The plan is to play it by ear and wander a bit - oysters, po'boys, cocktails, and the like.

Lunch - Mila
Dinner - NOLA

Lunch - New Orleans Cooking School
Dinner - Bayona

Lunch - Antoine's
Dinner - Commander's Palace

Either breakfast at Brennan's or lunch at Central Grocery (or both)
Depart at 1:45


Commander's Palace Restaurant
1403 Washington Ave, New Orleans, LA 70130

430 Dauphine St, New Orleans, LA 70112
