Neophytes in NOLA

Alan | Apr 10, 200004:54 PM     2

My wife and I will be in your town for a few days right after Memorial Day. I'm attending a conference, so we're staying at the Riverside Hilton. Neither one of us has been there before, and I'm seeking the gentle guidance of you natives so that we can enjoy the kinds of culinary thrills I've been looking forward to.

I'm a very eclectic eater, but my wife is a vegetarian (although the occasional shrimp or clam will enter her mouth from time to time). We both love spicy food. I've been dreaming of oyster po' boys, crawfish, and all the other things that make New Orleans famous. My wife wants to be sure to grab a decent beignet before she leaves.

Suggestions?

Thanks.
