Headed to New Orleans for the Mardi Gras Marathon next month. Husuband needs a good carb load meal Satruday before the race on Sunday. Usually we go for traditional Italian fare for this type meal. Not sure if that's our best choice in NOLA? We'll be staying near the Quarter (Courtyard on St. Charles) without a car. So walk/streetcar/cab close is appreicated. Thanks for your help!
