You guys! My husband went and got himself a job in New Orleans and, 2 weeks from tomorrow, we are setting out from Boston to your fair city! SO EXCITED! I hope maybe we can do a CH meetup at some point, I've enjoyed reading all the posts by the regulars over the last year or so.
So, this is a bit of a different kind of Hound question. We will be moving, Tom starts his job soon thereafter, and we will be exhausted, overwhelmed, and on the poorer side of things (I don't have a job there yet). We love to cook, but I think our kitchen will take a little time to set up, so I have 3 questions:
1) where are good, cheap, non-Quarter places to get breakfast, lunch, dinner? Either sit in or good takeout. I am not sure where exactly we are living yet (eeee! coming down on the weekend of May 7-8 to hopefully take care of that) but odds are it will be Lower Garden, Irish Channel, or Marigny/Treme.
2) My husband is going to be working in the CBD (Archon building)- any rec's for lunch in that 'hood?
3) where/what are the good grocery stores in the area? Also, any recommendations for farmers markets/CSAs/farm stands?
