New York foodie coming to NOLA for MLK weekend

Original message disappeared so pardon me....

Friday night late- near Hilton Garden Inn on Gravier street. Anything open with food and entertainment within walking distance after midnight?

Breakfast- I need three breakfasts- Sat, Sun, Mon.
Beignets and chicory coffee at Cafe Du Monde? A jazz brunch somewhere?

Lunch- Would like to try Antoines and the Commander's palace for lunch since my friend is not into spending a ton of money on food. Are they good for lunch?

What are great street foods and local foods that I should not miss? Mufuletta? Gateau de sirop? French bread float? Bananas foster? Pain Perdu? Do locals really eat these things?

Are there any carnival foods that will be found at events. I will be there the 15th to the 18th of January so it will be early in the Carnival season but I hope that some activities will have started.

With a trip this short I only want to have food that I can only get in Louisiana. It should be authentic and good. Please make any suggestions.

Now here is the hardest question- What are the best kosher entrees? I don't mean "certified by a rabbi" kosher I just mean "biblical kosher" e.g. no crawfish, no pork sausages, no shrimp, etc.

Thanks!
