My wife and I will be visiting for the first time next Fri-Sun and are avid eaters and drinkers. We have young kids and don't get out much to eat in NY, so we are hoping to make this trip a great food experience. A little romance wouldn't hurt either.
We will be staying in the French Quarter, but would like to see other areas as well, and wouldn't mind getting off the list of typical tourist places.
So here's the question for local chowhounds: Where do you go for real New Orleans food?
(Price isn't really a consideration, since we won't be there for too many meals. We're especially looking for things we could never find in NY.)
