Restaurant ideas for March visit to NOLA- NEED HELP-TOO MANY GREAT PLACES TO EAT!!!!!

suzieq4 | Jan 22, 201202:23 PM

My husband and I are going to NOLA in about 6 weeks for 4 nights. . I have been reading the threads and have gotten some great ideas. We have way too many places on our list. We want to sample classic food and also the newer type of NOLA food, cajun and Creole, expensive and cheap authentic places. We want to eat in the FQ but also get out to other areas. We don't have a car. Here is my list. I would appreciate your suggestions:


Lunch - Galatoire or Mr. B's (have to try the barbarque shrimp Kukubura raves about) Any suggstions on what to eat at Galatoire?

Dinner - Green Goddess

Kermit Vaughn afterwards


Lunch - Commander's Place ( I have made the reservation for the garden room)

Walk around the cemetery and also walk around the neighborhood after lunch.

Dinner - Cafe Atchafalya or Mr. B's if we haven't eaten there yet.


1) Lunch - we would like to go to the Farmer's market in the morning and then go to the WWII museum - any suggestions on where to eat???? would Casamentos be too far? I was thinking maybe we could take the Charles Street Street car to Casamentos.

2) Dinner - Bayona- Can anyone tell me about how they liked this restaurant? There isn't much on the boards about it but someone brought me Susan Spicer's cookbook.


1) Brunch- Lil Dizzy

2)Dinner - Dante's kitchen


1) Breakfast -Elizabeth's

2) Lunch - Mila ($20 special)

And then Coquette, Upperline, KPaul's Kitchen, Herbsaint, Drago's, Liuzza's by the Track, Willie Mae's Scotch House, August, Luke's Happy hour, Acme Oyster, Irene's or Tommys all sound good. And we have to to go Cafe Du Monde too. Plus all those great ideas on what bars to stop in at? Sounds like we need at least a week.
