When the traffic report on the radio this morning mentioned "debris in the road" I started getting hungry because I'm thinking about all the great food we're going to have when we finally make our long-delayed return to our favorite city mid-December. Last time we were there we did this: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/633414 but now we are far more omnivorous (thanks to my wife's food blog, which was inspired by the last trip and has turned into a full-on obsession) and are armed with a long list of things we plan to eat. So far the rough itinerary looks like this:
Arrive around 11am or so, immediately hit MR. B's for BBQ shrimp (our favorite last time) and gumbo ya-ya (which we didn't have)
For dinner, either COCHON or GREEN GODDESS maybe? Haven't been to either.
If he's playing, Kermit Ruffins plus whatever he's cooking.
Breakfast: THE OLD COFFEE POT?
Lunch: Our traditional Friday COMMANDER'S lunch, of course. VERY much looking forward to that.
Dinner: Whichever dinner we didn't have the previous night, perhaps?
Breakfast: CAFE DU MONDE
Lunch: Po boys at some place out of the quarter, perhaps. Like DOMILISE'S or PARKWAY. Or someplace else?
Sunday: The early flight I thought we would take isn't available on Sundays, apparently, so we have an extra meal! Probably brunch at LIL DIZZY'S in Treme, is what I'm thinking.
Of course, much grazing and snacking in between, plus drinks at all the great bars that we love, lots of music, etc... There are so many other places that we want to try as well. Any suggestions? Obviously I'm a regular here but that doesn't mean I know anything at all! And with plenty of time to plan we have plenty of time to anticipate!
