My first trip to NOLA and I'm giddy about the it. I'm going to eat - and eat well. I've been researching the board, browsing websites and I've compiled a list and would like your thoughts, suggestions, etc. I know there are a ton of threads and I've been careful to read many of them and hope to not duplicate any questions posed previously by others.
We are going the first weekend in March, thurs - sun. We'll arrive 9pm on Thursday, so we'll need a place that serves food late that night. We're staying at the Westin, riverfront. Here's what I have planned thus far:
Thursday: ??? late dinner suggestion needed. Dick n' Jenny's maybe? Yo Mamas?
Friday Breakfast: open to anything but don't want anything too big. Camellia Grill?
Friday lunch: Galatoire's. What is the best time to get in line? How long is the wait, generally? Do people really pay folks to stand in line for them? Can u get a drink while u wait?
Friday dinner: Mr. B's Bistro
Saturday breakfast: Cafe du Monde - which location?
Saturday lunch: up in the air. The Galley? Domilise's? Central Grocery?
Saturday dinner: Restaurant August
Bars to visit: The Sazerac, French 75, Old Absinthe, Carousel - and Tipitina's maybe for music.
What do you think?
