We've recently been presented with an opportunity that would have us visiting New Orleans from around 12/23 to 12/27 or so. Can anyone tell me what the restaurant scene is like around Christmas? Are restaurants open Christmas day?
I've never tried to do any real traveling around the holidays just because of the crowds of people trying to do the same thing. Restaurants at home tend to not be at their best this time of year, between staff members wanting vacation time as much as anyone, limited menus, and the general holiday-inspired lunacy. What is it like there?
