Too many restaurants, not enough time!

Hi, after reading Lisa's post below, I think I need the same help. My husband and I will be in town next week from Wed. to Fri. to celebrate my 40th birthday. I've been once before, last March, but my husband is a first-timer. I had one of my all-time favorite meals at NOLA last March and made reservations for my birthday, but I've read some bad and so-so reviews on this board. What's the concensus?

We arrive late on Wed., so thought we would just have dinner at Lemon Grass at our hotel, any thoughts on this restaurant?

I know the touristy stuff isn't recommended, but what of the following are "must-do's"?

Commander's Palace
Breakfast at Brennan's
Breakfast/Lunch at Mother's
Muffulatta'a at Central Grocery

We also want to hit Acme for oysters and Cafe du Monde for beignets. Oh, I almost forgot, the only reservation I could get at Bayona was 10:30 pm on Fri. night...too late to linger and enjoy?

Am I being to optimistic for 3 1/2 days worth of eating? HELP!
