foodie honeymoon, post-christmas. please advise! (slightly long)

mvjd | Nov 10, 2010 04:01 PM

my husband and i are having a late honeymoon -- we got married in june -- in new orleans, the week after christmas (dec. 26-dec. 31). i've been stalking these boards for ideas about where to eat and what to do, and i have a rough outline of our eating adventure through new orleans.

but i must admit i'm a little overwhelmed. (see: and i feel like i'm missing something. and there's some definite holes in our plan. where's the best po boy? the best mufaletta? the best happy hour?

i left out some standbys -- e.g. galatoires, commander's palace -- for various reasons, most likely b/c of dress code or distance, but PLEASE let me know if i'm being foolish and MUST go to this place. cheap but tasty eats get bonus points.

fyi: we're staying at the renaissance arts hotel in the warehouse district, and are planning to get 5-day jazzy passes, so we can have unlimited streetcar/bus rides for most of the time we're there.

so! the plan:

land at 2:30, get settled about 3:20-ish
snack + early dinner: domenica (half-off pizzas and drinks, + food deals, 3 p.m.-6 p.m.)

breakfast -- daisy duke’s
activity -- walk around magazine st
lunch -- ?
dinner -- coquette

activity -- food and beverage museum
breakfast -- cafe du monde
lunch -- feast
dinner -- luke happy hour drinks, food

breakfast --?
activity -- audubon insectarium (romantic, i know)
lunch -- express lunch, cuvee
dinner -- patois

breakfast -- trolley stop cafe
activity -- breathe, exercise, something.
lunch -- moon wok (for banh mi, since dong phuong appears to be too far away)
dinner -- mila? cafe adelaide?

brunch -- po boy/mufaletta to take home?
