Hello New Orleans Chowhounds...

Gearing up for trip #6. My daughter (DD) has been there for almost a year now, and is very very happy teaching in New Orleans. Her stepsister (SS) has never been to NOLA (and has really not been out of California much) so I am bringing her for six days of fun, food and revelry.

SS likes fine food, but really only eats a full meal @ dinner (just one of those folks that does not eat much before noon). As far as drinks, she will like creative absinthe-flavored cocktails. Yes, she is a picky eater/drinker but I have convinced her (I hope) to be adventurous!

****Apparently, I will be out hounding for breakfast spots on my own while SS sleeps in the am.***
I am staying CBD, they are in Carrollton/Uptown area. They will have a car, I will be walking streetcar/pedicab/cabbing it.

So here is trip #6 so far:

Arrive into town mid-day Friday. No lunch plans; will probably show SS around FQ.

Friday HH: meet DD and her crew @ Rum House (We are flexible, but they like RH for Friday happy hours, tacos apparently.)

Friday dinner: No plans. DD & SS will go out for music/nightlife.

Sat breakfast: I will be solo meeting them on an early Treme walking tour.

Sat lunch: No plans, will have a car.

Sat pm; Cochon - we are very excited about this! Post Cochon DD & SS will go out again.

Sun brunch: Melange - we got a Groupon discount and it looks fun. Any comments?

Sun dinner: No meal plans yet. We may go to the Mid-City Bayou Boogaloo and then try Twelve Mile Limit for Sunday night cocktails.

Monday lunch: ?

Monday dinner: Atchafalaya Restaurant.

Tuesday lunch: ?

Tuesday dinner - I am considering either La Petite Grocery or Gautreau's. SS likes look of the Gautreau's menu. I like the look of La Petite, but we could do that for a lunch.

With Cochon reserved for this trip, DD and I will have partaken of all Brett Andersen's top ten 2011 picks with the exception of La Petite, Gautreau's and Clancy's.
