I will be bringing my daughter to NO to visit Tulane in 2 weeks and need some dining suggestions. Neither of us has ever been to NO before. We both will eat anything although she's not big on anything too spicy. In particular would enjoy eating the local cuisine as much as possible and keeping meals to no more than $20 or so a head (exceptions are allowed). Looking for the following:
1) Thursday evening not far from the Intercontinental. Flight doesn't get in until 7pm so something easy to get in and out of.
2) Friday dinner near Tulane. We won't be done until probably around 5pm so it would be nice to try something near the University. Alternatively, we want to go to Preservation hall and could go Fri or Sat and so could do dinner before that.
3) Saturday dinner at Luke (I have reservations and think we'll both enjoy that even though a bit higher end that I want other meals to be.
4) Sunday brunch and/or simpler meals. Our flight isn't until 4:30 and we won't be eating until the next morning so suggestions for whatever Sunday would be great.
Breakfasts any day (something near the hotel or Tulane would be really great for Friday). Saturday we'll go anywhere interesting since we don't know how we're spending the day yet.
Any and all suggestions welcome.
