I'm bringing my daughter from Boston to Tulane next week, and we'll stay in Metairie, rather than "in town" so we can hit the malls and get her room outfitted. Any suggestions about good places to eat out that way, or between there and the Tulane area? We like local "down home" type places. I can get Indian, Thai, Japanese, MExican, etc., here at home.
Years ago, my husband worked off of Grand Isle, and according to him, at that time, you couldn't get a bad meal in NOLA--even at the LaQuinta Inn he and his coworkers stayed at! I'd appreciate any specific suggestions! Thanks!
