Chowhound's First time in New Orleans - Need Recommendations
If you could name your top three - Cheap Eats and Overall Eats - in New Orleans what would they be?
Welcome...here are my current, post-Katrina top three. I restricted my choices to very cheap and then price-is-no-object. This is a very subjective list, I could easily name others if you asked me tomorrow.
cheap eats: Casamentos (opens on Sept 12), Parkway Bakery, Pho Tau Bay (westbank)
high-end eats--Restaurant August, Bayona, Galatoire's
cheap eats: Mona's, Port of call, Snug Harbor
Cost is no object: Cuvee, Lilette, Upperline
and all of the above
Cheap: Casamento's, Coop's, Crabby Jack's
high end: Stella!, K-Paul's, Clancy's
And the above 2 posts have excellent picks as well.
cheap: so hard to pick just three, although jgrey and hungry celeste have already nailed mine. I would also add Central Grocery and Liuzza's (on Bienville) to their lists.
overall: Dick & Jenny's, Cochon, Upperline. My tastes sort of stray away from the super stuffy high end places.
Cheap: Crabby Jacks or Domilises, Mothers, Central Grocery.
Overall: Dick and Jenny's, Brigstens, Upperline.
I disagree with Casamentos and Pho Tau Buy
