We'll be in New Orleans around Christmas. We're staying at the Roosevelt. So far, I've booked Irene's (bc I was there many years ago and loved it) Brigtsen's, and the Pelican Club for Christmas Eve. We have four nights so I still have one more night to book. And, still time to change if any of these places are not so great.
I also hope to find great breakfast/lunch places (we'll be in FQ sometimes but also headed to Bywater, Frenchman and maybe Garden District). I really want to find great spots for traditional NOLA food because we never get it where we're at.
