Nola for Three Days....Help Us Find What We Crave:

goumandette | May 23, 2008 07:03 AM

Two New Yorkers in town for three days....our plan is to do up-scale lunches/brunches and down-home dinners (interspersed with snacks, of course) during our stay. We are BIG fans of local flavor.....the best po' boy or chicken biscuit is preferred over mediocre beurre blanc. While we do have a car with us, we do prefer walking or taking the trolley so we can take advantage of 25 cent martinis and the like.

Our weakest area is on the down-home dinner angle.
So far on the agenda:


Court of Two Sisters
Commander's Palace (curious whether brunch is really worth the $40, or should we hit the lunch special instead)
Other suggestions????

muffuletta...but where? I've heard Central Grocery, but I've also heard from locals that it's gone downhill.
spicy creole....gumbo, jambalaya....but where?
other non-cajun/creole or bar food suggestions (big plus if good music is involved)


Cafe du Monde
oyster shooters

Many thanks in advance for all tips. Can't wait to taste NOLA!!!
