First time in New Orleans. My partner and I have bought a beat up camper and are coming down to New Orleans from Montreal via Kentucky, Tennessee and Mississippi.

We will be hitting meat and threes and other southern staples on the way down but we are guarding our wallets to cut loose in N.O!

The camper (its only 17 ft van) and I have no issues getting out and about for good food.

There are so many choices i am getting overwhelmed so i would really appreciate any assurances or recommendations.

So we will be in town for 5 nights and 4 full days.

For lunch i was thinking: Galatoires (Friday), Commanders Palace,Willie-Maes (or somewhere similar)and Atchafayla. I also heard Restaurant Augusts lunch special is quite good.

What do you think? Any other suggestions?

For dinner i was thinking; Cochon and Dantes Kitchen and then i kind of get stuck. What else would you recommend given that i have knocked of a few of the big boys for lunch? What a broad horrible question. Sorry. I just want to get a great varied experience of the best the city has to offer.

I still have to sort out time and stomach space for Po Boys, Oysters and Crawfish. Any favs for great oysters and crawfish? Just great seafood and cold beer or cocktails for pre dinners or at the rate i am going pre pre dinners.

Anywho! Thanks for reading i am really looking forward to coming to your great city. I am already looking at extending our stay!

Thanks again Chowhounders i love the community here.
