Help me figure out the best eating strategy for our 3 day / 2 night trip

Hello all,
I was hoping you could help me figure out how best to plan it and if I'm going completely off base:
We arrive @ 9 AM on Wednesday morning and have an early evening flight out of Friday.
So only 2 dinners: I was recommended Jacques-imo's by a friend but this board appears not to be too impressed any other suggestions?
I was thinking the second night for Acme's for dinner and perhaps some fancy cocktails and snacks on a bit of our own bar crawl.
For lunch I have one day reserved for August's 3 course lunch, a day for po' boys and a day for...?
Also recommended was Elizabeth's restaurant, is that a better place for lunch or dinner?
Breakfasts besides Cafe du Monde?
We are budget but don't mind a splurge every so often as long as it deserves it but especially appreciate great happy hours or deals like August's.
Also I try to veer away from Italian focused as my boyfriend is from Italy and so I like to show him the flip side.
Basically anything you guys want to share would be appreciated!
Thank you so much for all your help
