Visiting NOLA for four nights-- help!

Nolafan | Jul 6, 200510:13 AM

Hi All,

I'm visiting NOLA from Mon to Fri next week and need some restaurant recs. This is my second trip so I have some familiarity. I'm going to try the Brigtsen's early bird special on Wednesday and was thinking of Jacques-Imo's on Tues night along with Rendition. So I'm still looking for places for Mon and Fri nights.

Does anyone know what's been on the Brigtsen's early bird menu recently? Any recent experiences at Jacques-Imo's? People seem to be evenly split on that one.

Any good breakfast places in the Garden District?

Also, could you recommend some good, relatively inexpensive places in FQ for basic good Nawlins food for dinner?

And for lunch-- definitely going to Central Grocery but for other options-- I went to Mother's last time and don't quite feel like braving the line this time-- what is the best po' boy in the quarter?

Finally, how far is Franky and Johnny's from the quarter? Pricey cab ride or short? What might be a good crawfish boil option in the FQ?

Thanks so much!!!
