DH and I are coming to NO for the first time in many years, so get ready, folks! We have adventurous, sophisticated palates and love good food, but not a noisy atmosphere. We are mostly vegetarians, but eat fish and seafood too.
We want good typical (if there is such a thing) New Orleans food, not food that we can get at home where we have an abundance of wonderful general restaurants and good ethnic restaurants of many stripes.
We usually go to two meals a day when on vacation, so we're looking for breakfast and dinner recommendations. Do we need to make reservations at most places? Do we have to worry about dress codes (we're very casual types)? Where should we have our Saturday evening farewell dinner? We'll be in NOLA from Mon. Jan 3 - Sat. Jan 9.
We'll be staying in the French Quarter and will have a car. I'm in a wheelchair, so we can get around the FQ pretty well, and I can actually get into most restaurants without the chair, but need it for distances or for waiting in line. Going out of the FQ is a definite option for a worthy destination; but is it too much of a hassle?
Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
