I don\t arrive till November, but I am SO excited to be coming to the famous city of New Orleans (for my first time!)..will be coming with a bunch of work colleagues for a conference and would LOVE to be able to suggest a spot for an evening out..I'm thinking funky vibe, maybe some live music, great energy and some reasonably priced food for sharing (vs. a formal sit down dinner) We will all be staying close to the conference centre (some of us in the "warehouse district? - Renaissance Arts/Marriott).
and on another note - my roomate has shrimp allergies (poor boy) - he will bring his epi-pen, but do you think it will be safe for him to eat in most restaurants (shrimp seems a popular item on most menus!)
thank you in advance from toronto..
