I'm landing in NOLA tomorrow and I can feel a cold coming on. If I were at home, I'd try to drown it in hot-and-sour soup; down your way, I don't know what my best options are. Take-out might also be helpful, but isn't a necessity (...yet).
I'll be staying on Iberville Street in the French Quarter, so recommendations near there would be easiest for me, at least for tomorrow night. I'll also be attending a conference at the Morial starting Saturday afternoon.
I'm trying to keep my meals under $25. It doesn't have to be soup, and if it could be something that New Orleans does well (and that I'm less likely to find here in Boston), that would be great. I am a spice fiend, so don't be afraid to go hard. No other dining restrictions. If you need any other information, just let me know. Thanks!
