I'll be visiting NOLA with a group of guys in our 20s for a week in July, and we're going deep sea fishing in Grand Isle mid-week. What are some good restaurants on the way down there or in Grand Isle? Any good cajun grocers on the way, especially some that sell hog's head cheese? We're starting off in NOLA on Monday and Tuesday, will be in Grand Isle on Weds and Thurs, and back in NOLA for the weekend. Some of the places we plan on going in NOLA are Commander's for lunch (can't beat 25 cent martinis), Napoleon House, Mandina's, ACME (unfortunately Casamentos will be closed), and Deanie's. We always go to Galatoire's mainly for the atmosphere (the only place where I've picked up women between courses, at least successfully). If anyone knows another upscale place that has awesome food and would be good for a group of young guys (in other words, has more of a party rather than romantic atmosphere), we'd be willing to try it. We're staying at the Windsor Court, but anywhere in the FQ, downtown, or uptown should be fine. Thanks in advance.
