January visit to New Orleans

Scott L. Dec 26, 2000 11:01 AM

Hi all:

My wife and I are planning a long weekend in New Orleans the first weekend in January. We haven't been there in about 10 years, so we're pretty out-of-date on where the current best places are. So, where would you all suggest for a classic New Orleans meal? What are the hot new restaurants, and are they worth a trip? what about neighborhood joints, what are the best of those?? And where, if you were going to have one great meal in N.O. would you choose???

Thanks in advance!

    Don't forget Jacques-Imo's -- check out the numerous previous postings on the board about this restaurant. It's just a couple of blocks off the St. Charles streetcar line on Oak Street, and it's our one must-do for out of town visitors.

    Also see my earlier posting below regarding Dry Dock. The ferry ride is great. But don't go just for the food.

      The best the french quarter has is a sleeper! Not many know of Irene's on St.Phillip just one block off Decatur. Take the ferry across the river and go to the Dry Dock Cafe it is a local hang out and gets alot of tourist through there too.When you go in be sure to tell the girls Mike C. sent you, it won't get you a free beer but it will me! Have fun and don't back away from anything, it is all a real large time...gmc1356@gateway.net
