A little background:
My wife and I will be in New Orleans for six nights later this year. We are from Phoenix and have a place to stay in the Garden District. We like all types of food. This will be a no-reservations, casual and budget-conscious trip. The target price is $20 or less per person, not counting beverages.
Below are some options we are considering. If you like a place, please share why and what your favorite thing to get there is. If not, why not, and what is a better option in the same type of cuisine? Do any of these places require reservations (practically or otherwise)?
Acme Oyster House
Liuzza's by the Track
Parkway Bakery & Tavern
Freret Street Po-Boy and Donut Shop
What other places should a first time visitor go to, and what makes them special?
I appreciate the feedback.
