Off-the-radar southern or soul or creole restaurant suggestions

Our second visit to NO is coming up in early December and I have a coupla questions.

I remember seeing the story of the fall and rise of Willie Mae's Scotch House. I assume that millions of others saw it as well and make a point of eating there. Has this changed the character of the place?
Or perhaps this had no effect and the food is top notch? Or is it mostly hype?

Are there other places which could compare which are somewhat off-the-radar? JazzyB suggested Dooky Chase, are there others? Not necessarily the same food-style, but neighborhood joints putting out honest fare.

Places that I'm just throwing out there and don't have much of a clue:
Capt Sals Seafood & Chicken
The Joint
Marigny Brasserie

BTW, we're spending 4 days in NO before heading to Lafayette and doing day trips from there. Perhaps I shouldn't worry so much about off-the-radar joints in New Orleans and get my fill in Cajun country?

Thanks for your thoughts.
