Hello NO hounds -
My 3 roomates from college and i are going to New Orleans in 2 weeks for a little reunion trip - we're so excited!! 2 of us have been to NO several times (it'll be my 5th time) and we want to show the other 2 what brings us back time and time again. what better way to do this than eating our hearts out??
We can fit in 6 - 7 meals (and snacks in btwn!) since we'll only be there for a long weekend. also, given the current economy, we are, unfortunately, on a somewhat tight budget (< $27/person/meal). we're not big drinkers, and our strategy is to have lunches at pricier joints (such as Galatoire's) and dinners at places that are easier on the wallet.
As you can see, the list below is imcomplete and all over the place. Please feel free to rearrange or give any suggestions. i'm also looking to squeeze in Liuzza's & Dooky Chase's (not sure about the operating hrs), but don't know what's the best way:
Dinner: our first meal in town (we're arriving MSY at 10:30PM) - pls suggest a place in FQ for late night dinner (maybe gumbo or po-boy for the NOLA virgins?)
Breakfast: cafe du monde
Lunch: Galatoire's or Stella! or Herbsaint or Luke?
Dinner: Brigsten's or Casamento?
Brunch: is there a court yard like the Court of 2 sis, but with much better food? somewhere girly, pretty, and has great food.
So much to eat, so little time - thank you for your help!
