Could I get some Old Town help please?

Fydeaux | Jul 25, 2013 06:27 AM

I am going to be staying two nights at the Hotel Indigo in August, and I am completely unfamiliar with the area. I dont plan on limiting myself to that specific neighborhood, as a vist to the Jazz Record Mart is essential to my well-being. I have done a search here and there are lots of references, but like I said, I'm quite unfamiliar with the area.I prefer walking, but dont mind a long walk. I am not interested in 'fine dining'; relaxed and casual is the order of the day.

I have heard much about Da Lobsta, but can anyone recommend a better lobster roll?

I also love ribs; I have seen Marge's Still and Twin Anchor mentioned. Any better suggestions?

My town has lots of excellent Mexican, so I'm not really looking for that. I'm not a big pizza fan, but other Italian recs might be nice. Is there an exceptional old fashioned dirty water hot dog nearby?

Thank you all so much!
