looking for specific food items in nola

albertine | Nov 6, 200907:50 PM

im taking my boyfriend to nola for three days to celebrate his 30th birthday. he is a vegetarian (ovo-lacto) and hes allergic to mushrooms.
he likes cheesy, bready things, potatoes in all forms, and fried eggplant. im looking for some casual day places to take him, as well as a nicer place for his actual bday. we're not looking for "best restaurant" destinations, necessarily, b/c we're from nyc and now live in san francisco, so we have many world-renowned restaurants at our fingertips (and we're doing a pre-bday celebration with his parents at daniel bouluds place in vegas). what im really looking for are places that are going to do new orleans cooking really, really well, or provide a southern twist on classic comfort foods. and also be at least mildly veggie friendly. unfortunately, we wont be there for brunch, but would LOVE breakfast suggestions.

some specific requests below (including a couple non-veggie ones for me)...thank you so much!
buttermilk biscuits
fried eggplant
beignets (besides cafe du monde...we're going here)
mac n cheese
bread pudding
hash browns
shrimp n grits
poached or fried eggs w/ new orleans flavors
sugar cured bacon
pork belly

thank you!
