I'm planning a trip to New Orleans around Labor Day weekend and am looking for restaurant recommendations, for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Given the heat, I really don't want to change out of shorts, so I am looking for the best food without a dress code -- although I am willing to wear a shirt and shoes :) Price is not important, quality of the food is.
We'll be staying in the French Quarter, so walking distance from there would be ideal, but we'd hop a taxi if worth it. Also, I am coming from NYC and am looking for food that I really can't get easily (or at all!) back home. I'm guessing that this would be cajun/creole/Southern/BBQ, but who knows, maybe there are other types out there.
Thanks in advance!
