First NOLA Trip Where I Can Actually Choose Restaurants

lnedrive14 | Aug 7, 2014 12:08 PM

So, after a handful of bachelor parties/weddings in New Orleans, I am finally heading down there with the opportunity to make my own itinerary. Needless to say, am beyond excited. Realize I could probably scour the board and pull together some ideas, but am strapped for time so was hoping I could get some specific advice. Thanks in advance for the help!

Have 4 lunches and 3 dinners to plan. One dinner is definitely Cochon, and one lunch is definitely Emeril's (I enjoyed Delmonico's and NOLA, and the lady wants to try one of his places). So that leaves me with 3 lunches and 2 dinners. Basically looking for all-around best food I can find -- prefer lower key places to fancy (e.g., not going to Galatoire's, but would consider R-Evolution if the food is really that good). Any price point is fine. Staying at the W in the French quarter -- happy to cab now and then, but would prefer walkable places (we are willing to walk pretty far, even in the heat -- sadly seems like a lot of good places are Uptown).

One specific request -- really want to find a great Po-Boy (have been to Mother's and was unimpressed -- how is Killer Po-Boys?) one day for lunch.

Thanks again!

Emeril's Delmonico,
Galatoire's 33 Bar & Steak,
Cochon Butcher
