So excited to visit NO for the second time in two years. This trip (April 17 - 22) combines some professional meetings, for my grown daughter, along with fun/food/walks for both of us. This itinerary is subject to change depending on her meetings, but here is a start. (Last year we ate at Bayona, Cafe Amelie, Croissant D'Or, Cafe Beignet, Carousel Bar, Baccanal, Johhny's Po-Boys, Camellia Grill, Antoine's [dessert only], Coop's, Casamento's... and a few others.)
This jaunt -- and it looks like I will be visiting more and more -- we only have four full days, so here are my thoughts. Much of this is based on the best desserts post from a few weeks (?) ago:
Monday dinner: Bar food/drinks at Dickie Brennan’s - we get in/settled around 7 pm and hotel is in FQ.
~Tuesday lunch @ August, have reservation! Thanks Chowhound Board for the heads-up about their 3- course lunch.
If free, Audubon Park/Zoo
~Tuesday dinner/dessert @ Camellia Grill featuring the Pecan Pie on the grill.
~Wed lunch @ Johnny’s Po-Boys
Wed pm, meetings. If not, free day at NOMA
~Wed bar food/ Happy Hour @ Three Muses
~Wed dessert – Sweet Potato Pie @ Praline Connection (daughter has never had SPP.)
Music on Frenchmen Street
~Thursday lunch ?
~Thursday dinner/dessert – Bistro Coquette for Chocolate Pot Du Crème/Beignet
Do I need reservations for Coquette on a Thurs?
Friday lunch ?
Friday pm, meetings & touring around town
Friday Happy Hour?
Friday dinner – Boiled crawfish somewhere?
If we have time, I am thinking about Dick N Jenny's, Elizabeth's and Reconcile Cafe.
Although we leave early Sat am .. we will be back!
Any help appreciated!!!
