Experienced NOLA traveler looking for some new "digs"...

Ok guys and gals...I'm visiting soon (next week). Can't wait to be there, minus the anticipated heat!! I'm traveling with my 15 year old son, who will be breaking my pocketbook, I fear. I need your perspectives on a few things:

1.Best French Quarter (casual) eateries for lunch? Good portions, not too pricey? Local fare..no ethnic food...I'm already very familiar with Central Grocery, Johnny's, Pierre Masperos just to name a few.

2. Best fried sea food Po'Boy in Uptown area?

3. Mulate's?? I haven't heard much talk of this restaurant, am thinking of visiting the original when coming through Breaux Bridge.

4.Splurge night--your opinions on Broussards, Tujagues, K-Pauls--regarding price, portions, service, dress attire, good atmosphere welcoming to teens.. I have eaten at Arnauds', Galtoires, Antoines and Muriels all recently. Want to try something new. I'm open to other suggestions in the FQ. I have never eaten at any of the Brennan restaurants.

5. Court of Two Sisters-I'd like to do the Jazz brunch, but I can't remember how much it costs, and I can't find anything on their URL with prices. I know it's delicious, and my son would love it, plus the all you can eat buffet..but I'm thinking it was pretty pricey..like close to $30 per person.

Thanks for any input you have!!
