First timers from Bahamas spending 5 days in New Orleans

Lost my first post so this one's going to be much shorter.

From the caption it's our first trip to New Orleans... we really want to absorb the food and music culture there.

I'm a pescatarian my husband eats everything. I love fine dining but my husband likes simple casual food. Coming from an island, we're both a little but of seafood snobs.
The food scene in new Orleans is overwhelming so I would welcome input on what I've put together based on my research here and elsewhere. We'll probably have early lunches and late dinners.


-Cafe du Monde/Cafe Beignet or some other suggestion for beignets?
-Cafe Adelaide
-Jazz brunch somewhere maybe Commanders Palace?

-Cochon (this is strictly for my husband. I'll probably get the cheese plate and Brussel sprouts if there's no bacon in them)
-windsor Court Grill Room
-Mr Bs
-other suggestions?



**how necessary are reservations at any of these


-Tuesday at the Maple Leaf
-Preservation Hall
-Snug Harbour
- the Spotted Cat

**Are live bands playing through most nights for example if we plan to stay out late and bar/club hop for music through the early morning?
