I need some New Orleans experts to help me with my Jazzfest food itinerary. We are 3 women around 30 y/o coming from NY/SF and looking for a good mix of food that is unique to the region. We don't want to break the bank, either. We're all first timers to N.O. (and the South, for that matter).
Here is where I have reservations (restaurants like Stella! and August were fully booked) for now:
Sat night - Luke
Sun night - NOLA (I know, I know...Emeril's restaurants get totally bashed on this board), so I also have reservations at Mr. B's Bistro
Mon night - Cochon (Is it worth it for dinner? I've read that it's more of a lunch place)
I'm debating whether we should do something casual for dinner, like ACME, but not sure if we'll get that genre covered during lunch time. We're most likely going to eat Sat/Sun lunches at Jazzfest, I think?? I'd love to go to Cafe Amelie for Sunday brunch maybe before we head over to Jazzfest.
