Did some research ~ thoughts on selections?

FleurdeLis504 | Mar 14, 2010 07:24 PM

I'll be arriving Friday evening, not sure what time yet, so I'm thinking something easy and casual for dinner ~ and close to the hotel, so I'm thinking Fergies. Open late and their website said there would be music. Love us some Irish music! And besides, I really want to just chill out at a laid back place after working and traveling all day.

For Saturday I'm thinking breakfast at the Dutch Eating Place and then off to do the historical tourist thing ~ Independance Hall, Liberty Bell and Constitution Center. Lunch at Jim's Steaks when we get hungry. Do they serve beer or is it BYOB? (We are from NOLA!!) After that, happy hour at Village Whiskey b/c the snack and cocktail menu look amazing! Any recommendations for what to eat and drink there? Food prices look decent, but I don't think that we'll be ordering much, so I want to get the best stuff and quite frankly, drink prices look outrageous to me, so if I'm gonna pay $12 for a drink, I'd like not to order the one thing that is generally regarded as a bad decision. LOL!! Then off to Ortleib's for music and a late lite dinner.

Since I'll be flying out sometime on Sunday (and Saturday is going to be a long day) I'm thinking Fado's for breakfast/brunch. My beau *loves* Irish breakfast and I'm dying to try the brown bread ice cream! And a couple of cocktails b/f a plane trip is required for me.

Obviously not the most high end foodie trip, but I'm the one that enjoys that stuff and he would probably be perfectly happy to live on pizza, Krystal burgers and the occasional trip to Galatoire's. (SUCH a contradiction!) So, I'm trying to keep it balanced. ;)

All feedback is *much* appreciated!!!
