First visit - Food itinerary

afp211 | Mar 22, 201410:03 AM

Longtime Chowhound lurker, and I'm finally registering to ask for your advice on our upcoming NOLA trip!

My husband and I are 31/29, making our first trip May 8-13, and leaving our kids at home. We're staying at the Hyatt French Quarter. Husband will be at a conference over morning/lunch on Saturday and Monday, so I'll be on my own for lunch those days. We will have breakfast vouchers for Powdered Sugar at the Hyatt for each day of our stay, if we want to use them.

Here is what we are thinking -
Thurs (8th) - our flight arrives at 7:10 pm - open to dinner ideas - anything good close to our hotel?
Fri (9th) - lunch at Restaurant August, dinner at Emerils
Sat (10th) - lunch - ? (I will be solo), dinner - ?
Sun (11th) - brunch at Muriels (this is also Mothers Day), dinner - ?
Mon (12th) - lunch - ?, dinner - Commanders Palace
Tues (13th) - we fly out early, 8 am

We've been told to try Port of Call and Johnny's Po Boys while we're there. We've considered Bayona and Coquette for Saturday dinner. Any other "can't miss" meals? We're up for fancy or not fancy - just like good food!


Emeril's New Orleans,
Emeril's Delmonico,
Port of Call,
Johnny's Po-Boys,
Commander's Palace,
Muriel's Jackson Square
