Thanksgiving week here we come!

Hi #NOLA board chowhounders.

I have exercised as much restraint as I can muster by waiting until August 10 to begin posting my November 2013 eating itinerary. Thanks for humoring me :}

Background: DH and I will be staying in FQ early in the week and, again, late in the week. Midweek/Thanksgiving we will lodged Uptown and there will be five family members. We want fun, lively places for the group meals Friday & Saturday.

I am trying for a good mix of meat and seafood, re-visits to a few favorites but mostly new-to-me places. Although we have two NOLA "newbies" we will likely try to avoid anything too traditional, or touristy. I have other opportunities to do those spots in 2014.

Here is the first cut with the ~N next to spots that are NEW to me.

Monday in/near FQ:

Lunch - Vacherie (Bar, not Cafe) ~N (would like feedback on Vacherie, I really like EatNOLA so thought it would be fun to try this spot.
HH: SoBou
Dinner: Rio Mar ~N (finally, OK!)

Lunch: American Sector ~N
HH: Luke
Dinner: Sylvain ~N

Lunch:Domilise's ~N
HH/Dinner: Coquette - upstairs for a party of 5 or 6?

'Da Track'
Homemade Thanksgiving

Confederacy of Cruisers Cocktail Bike Tour
HH: Carousel Bar
Dinner: Meauxbar ~N

Lunch: Toup's Meatery ~N
HH + Dinner: OPEN to any and all suggestions/reviews, I am debating between Peche, Kingfish, Tableau?

Brunch: Patois or Dantes
Dinner: HH @ Domenica

Thank you Chowhounders..... to dream, to plan, to envision the savory NOLA dining experience. November is just around the corner.
