I am traveling to New Orleans for the first time for a conference. I also am traveling with my PhD cohort who are all new to the country and as the only "native" I am the designated tour guide. I know some places from my parents that I need to hit like Cafe du Monde, Central Bakery, WIllie Mae's Scotch House and Acme Oyster House, but I need help. I am looking for good authentic Creole or Cajun food and good seafood. Bear in mind we are grad students and if I had an "August" budget I wouldn't have a problem. I'm a foodie so fire away!

Our conference is in a hotel near the Superdome, but I am going to travel to at least the French Quarter and possibly beyond.

Any input is appreciated!
