I'm attending a conference mid-January at the Sheraton New Orleans (Canal Street, near the French Quarter, apparently) with my wife and some colleagues from work. My wife and I are big-time foodies, with others in the group being all over the board.
I would greatly appreciate some recommendations relative to: (1) value; and (2) ease of access.
By "value" I don't mean "inexpensive", but rather a combination of price and quality. Sometimes the most expensive restaurant in an area also delivers the best value. That same restaurant may also merit a long taxi fare.
We are coming from parts north (Canadians, not Yankees), so regional southern cuisines would be of particular interest.
Thank you very much!
