First NOLA trip in 10 years and I need help - pretty please :)

My friend and I are coming to New Orleans for a bachelor's long weekend at the very beginning of October. My friend is a well respected chef and I go long distances to eat the best food I can whenever I can. We chose NOLA not necessarily because of the party (though that's nice) but because of the food scene. We are staying in the FQ and don't mind streetcars or cabs to get around if necessary. I am looking for some one to fill out the rest of our itinerary with restaurants and great places to drink (doesn't need to be the same place.)

We get in on Thursday evening and leave Monday.

Thursday Dinner - Cochon. I have been reading the boards and it seems like the small plates are the way to go.

Friday Lunch - Mr. B's for BBQ Shrimp

Friday Dinner - ?

Saturday Lunch - ?

Saturday Dinner - August

Sunday Brunch - Commander's Palace

Sunday Dinner - ?

Stella! sounds great, but we have similar world class restaurants where we are from. I am looking for places that build in some southern flair with their food. I have heard good things about Rampart, Johnnies, (sp?) and Parkway for Po Boys. I am also trying to decide whether we should go to ACME or Felix's for oysters. Laslty, I have been to Galatoires the last time I was in town, and do not need to go back, however I am curious about Gautreaus, Antoines, and even Emeril's.
