Next Monday my husband is heading from Los Angeles to N.O. for business the next day in Marangouin (sp?). He was urged to stay in Baton Rouge but that seemed like a missed opportunity -- my husband has never been to NO so what could you recommend. He needs a good dinner and hotel recommendation. Next day, early, he can drive on the I-10 and get to Maringouin (sp?). It's been too many years since I've been to NO to know what to recommend. Should he stay in the French Quarter? on Canal Street? or ?????? And, then ideally, just walk out the hotel a block or so to a restaurant. TIA.
