You all are much information. Can't tell you how many hours I've spent reading your comments and getting hungry. Feeling a little overwhelmed. I'll be in NOLA 5/18-24 for a conference and want to make the best of my time. Staying in the French Quarter--Omni Royal Orleans. Haven't been there in about 12 years but did go to Bayona and Brigtsen's when I think they were pretty new; sounds like it's worth going to Brigtsen's again.

These are the places I want to go, wondering about the order, still have some flexibility.

Saturday--arrive around lunch-- Casamanto's oyster loaf or Central Grocery Mufaletta or angelo Brocatos and Parkway Bakery

Saturday dinner with 3 people I don't know, thinking Brigtsen's, Stella, or Commander's Palace

Sunday brunch--jazz brunch at Commander's Palace Will it be too similar to Galatoire's? Will it be awkward dining alone? (middle-aged woman, okay with eating alone but want to be comfortable--read posts)

Sunday dinner--Galatoire's--conference presenter dinner SET

Monday--might be eating alone, thinking Bar at Cochon or Chef's bar at NOLA

Tuesday-dinner with one other person I don't know well; can go to one of the Saturday suggestions--Brigtsen's, Stella, or Commander's Palace

Wednesday--might be eating alone

Thursday-breakfast Camella Grill or Mother's or just hang it up at Café du Monde and bring a sandwich for the plane; fly out at 2:30

Should I try to fit Pascal's Manale's BBQ shrimp in and are they open for lunch? Is it worth it to try to get to Mosca's across the river? How about Mandina's (take the Canal St. Trolley), or Liuzza's? Casamento's?

What am I missing ?

Thanks for all this great information and your help, and if you ever get to Boston....
