I am going to New Orleans this summer on business and bringing my junior high daughter with me. I would like to introduce her to New Orleans cuisine and culture in addition to my business plans. Any feedback on my choices or suggestions on my possibilities would be greatly appreciated.
Lunch - Parkway Bakery - I'm not trying to start a Po' Boy debate, but I want to take her for a Po' Boy and they seem to have one of the best.
Dinner - (Possibilities - Jacque-Imo's, Bourbon House or Dante's Kitchen). I want something that is good Creole cuisine, but not quite as expensive and formal (saving that for Friday)
Breakfast - Cafe du Monde - My wife has talked so much about beignets that there is no avoiding this.
Lunch - Mr. B's Bistro - (Open to other suggestions) I love gumbo and want try to theirs.
Dinner - We have to be out in Metarie that evening. My plan is Drago's.
Dinner - Possibilities are Arnaud's (My wife and I went there last year and had a wonderful meal - from Shrimp Remoulade to Cafe Brulot), Galatoires, Emeril's or Pelican Club. I want to take her to one elegant, formal dinner with all of the Creole classics. I'm open to other suggestions.
Lunch - We will stay out in Metarie before heading to the airport. Considering Galley Seafood or Bozo's.
Thanks for your help in advance. Will report back after our trip.
