local favourites?

funk504 | Nov 5, 2003 01:58 PM

with so many places to eat, the subjective nature of judging
food and other personal preferences (ie location, atmosphere),
i realize i'm prolly opening a big can or worms here but....

i'd like to here from LOCALS on some of there favourite places
to eat.....poboy shop, oyster house, upscale, low key, unknown,
under-rated....etc.

i'd also like to hear about any spots that are often recommended
but you consider over-rated....place where the LOCALS don't go!

i'm not a local (yet), but we'll see. anyway, here are some of mine:

breakfast -petunia's, elizbeth's
po-boy -mothers (ferdi or softshell crab), domilise's (oyster)
oysters -acme, cassameto's (oyster loaf!)
steak house -mr john's
classic -galitoire's
new school -bayona, jacques-imo's
muffaletta -napoleon house
upscale seafood -gw fins

i gotta give an honerable mention to one of my fave dive bars,
Coop's...which had a tasty Jambalaya when i needed some
fortification.

as far as over-rated goes, i was less-than-impressed with
NOLA and Mr.B's...
