Hi, my bf and i are heading to new orleans in a couple of weeks, for our first visit. the only truly touristy thing we will be doing is the egypt show at the art gallery. i'm a low carb eater. is there any place to eat that's fairly good or locally authentic in the neighbourhood of the art gallery?
From it's web site the gallery looks to have a reasonable collection. Is it worth budgeting some time to see??? if we were to spend the better part of the day at City Park, would anyone recommend bringing take out food to the park?
our hotel is on the border between fq and marigny.
Also, we are heading up to Natchez on the weekend. I've heeded the caveats on this site about louisiana BBQ, but wonder if good BBQ is available in Natchez?
