Heading back to the city I love---what's new?!

TedyB | Oct 8, 2012 07:36 AM

So heading back to town for Voodoo fest. It's been a year since my last trip and I'm looking for suggestions for anything new and exciting that opened in the last year OR some favs I may have been missing. Caveat is my gfriend who is a NOLA virgin and I want to show her some of my favs and the classics too.

Staying in the Quarter but willing to travel anywhere in the city and staying 5 nights so plenty of time

I'm ok with upscale but like hidden gems as well. To give you some of my favs:

-I love Dick and Jennys, Cochon, Mimi's in the Marigny, Jaques on Tuesday before seeing Rebirth at the Maple Leaf. Been to August and loved it. Done the Emerils thing and will likely bring her to lunch there during the week for the special if they still have it since I think it's solid.

Never did Kpauls and think I should. Thought about Re'evolution. Think I'm going to hit Herbsaint this time around since I've never been there either.

I welcome your thoughts.
