Visiting New Orleans for my first time next weekend and am so overwhelmed by all of the amazing restaurant choices that I am having trouble deciding. We will be arriving on Friday afternoon and leaving on Monday afternoon, so I have 72 hours worth of meals to plan... My friend is running the Mardi Gras Marathon on Sunday morning, so we want to stick with pasta or something relatively plain on Saturday night. Here are the possibilities we are considering thus far:
Friday dinner: Brigtsen's or Upperline
Saturday breakfast/lunch: Something casual, maybe beignets and muffulettas?
Saturday dinner: Maximo's Italian Grill or other Italian with some basic options for my marathon-running friend
Sunday (post-race) brunch: Brennan's or Commander's Palace
Sunday dinner: Emeril's?
Monday breakfast: ??
Other places I've read about that sound fabulous:
Any many more...
Your comments and alternate restaurant suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
