Need some help finishing up my restaurant itinerary

tatuaje68 | Nov 7, 201804:05 AM     15

I am visiting your wonderful city the first week of December for the first time. My main reason for coming to New Orleans is the food. I've done quite a bit of research and have narrowed down most of the restaurants.

I have two slots to fill and am not sure which two to pick so I am hoping for a little help from the community here.

I already have reservations for the following. (Except where they don't take reservations like Jacques Imo)

Lunch
Brennan's (Breakfast)
Peche
Cochon
Cochon Butcher (muffaletta)
Johnny's (Po"Boy)
Turkey and the Wolf
Mr B's Bistro
Compere lapin
Galatoires
Saba

(The reason I am getting my Po'Boy at Johnny's instead of the higher rated Parkway Bakery or Domilise's is that Johnny's opens at 8am and I can have one for breakfast so as not to use up a lunch slot.

Dinner
K-Paul's
Commander's Palace
Jacques Imo
Gabrielle
Coquette

I have two dinner slots to fill. There are so many places I want to go to that I am going to have to plan a second trip hopefully next year.

I need to pick two of the following. I am leaning against Herbsaint because I am already going to two other Donald Link restaurants Cochon and Peche but I still listed it in the event you think it is still a best bet.

Brigtsen's
Clancy's
Upperline
Herbsaint
Le Petite Grocery
Bayona
Restaurant August.

Thanks in advance for your input.
