I'm a New Yorker visiting New Orleans for my first time on business/pleasure. Since it is my first time in NO and I'm traveling with a buddy - we're likely not to go too far from the hotel (Windsor Court Hotel). So, something within a 15-minute walk or a 15 minute cab ride from the hotel?
Since I'm from NYC - I can get French and Italian cooking in abundance in NYC, but there is a serious shortage of good American regional foods (e.g. Cajun, BBQ, etc.). So, suggestions?
Pricing: generally moderate, but, where, if I'm gonna break the bank, should I go?
Meals: lunch and dinner (breakfast will probably be coffee and a croissant)
I'd love to find:
1) Seafood, e.g. crabs, crawfish, etc. (and do let me know if this will require a trip)
2) BBQ, e.g. ribs, fried chicken
