There is a group of 10 of us on 6 Harleys riding to NOLA in October from Fort Lauderdale... and although I can find incredible recommendations on this board for the best places to eat ... I need a little different information. Since we are riding the bikes, we will be in biker garb... heavy boots, skull bandanas, leather chaps, so I need some down home places where yuppie bikers can have a bit of Creole or Cajun exposure along with our beer. We are true chowhounds but need to leave Galatoires and Peristyle's for when we are appropriately dressed. We also need to take into account the crowds for the Steele Pony Express rally.
In addition, would any of you give us a bit of direction for a full day trip to take in some local color starting and ending in New Orleans with a couple of great casual stops along the way where we can have some seafood and and a cold beer?
I appreciate the help!
