Hello Chowhounders. March 16 I will be making my first trip to New Orleans. I am so very excited to visit this beautiful city, somewhere I have always wanted to go, mostly for the food. I will be staying at the Hilton Hotel on St. Charles Street (has anyone stayed here? Good/bad?) Anyway, I need MANY suggestions as to where to eat. I want to eat everything. I will be there for one week, so I need great places for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I want everything from white tablecloth to newspaper covered tabletop. Now, I will be going with my boyfriend and a friend who doesn't like seafood (Iknow, I know) so please include restaurants where he could find something that suits him (burgers, chicken, steak, etc.)
Thank you so much in advance, and who knows, maybe I will see you there!
Side note: Has anyone eaten at the Hilton St Charles Street restaurant, Luke? It is ran by John Besh?
