Hi friends... coming back to town on July 13.
My first time in July and I am (of course) preparing. DD lives very close to Plum Street so we have some loyalty.
Just saw this comparison of Hansen's and Plum in a blog: http://www.cynicalcook.com/2012/06/ha... pretty much saying hands down Hansen's is far better.
Anyhow, besides Hansen's & Plum Street here are a few more on my list. Appreciate any feedback; as you can see I am much less decisive than on previous journeys. Giggle.
Late brunch Day 1: TBD - Uptown or LGD area would be the best. I am a fan of both Dante's and Atchafalaya for lunch, anything comparable you would choose?
Dinner Day 1: Carrollton Market has some interesting starters including a Tomotts’ Farm Tomato Gazpacho. How is the place doing?
Lunch Day 2: McHardy's Chicken
HH/Dinner Day 2: Borgne, Yellow Tomato Gazpacho looks good. 'hounders like the duck poppers, too?
Lunch Day 3: Plum Street Sno Balls, perhaps Satsuma on Mag.
Dinner Day 3: Something on Freret, maybe High Hat
Lunch Day 4: Oxalis or Marti's, both new to me
Dinner Day 4: Organizing the group Chowdown @ Toup's Meatery. Please attend: 7:30 pm WED 7/16. email me so I can get you the details. http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/979631
Lunch Day 5: TBD
Dinner Day 5: This is the night of spirited dinners? Should I? Which one?
Day 6: Fly home.
Chime in eaters!
