Please help with so many choices!
Heading into NO to eat my way through town and show my ever loving support to this great city.
Here are the places I’ve eaten:
Here are the places I want to try this time. I prefer casual dress places.
Dick & Jenny’s
I only have time for two lunches and two dinners, which one should I cut out and save for next year? Or, should I add a different one?
Thanks for all your help!
Dick & Jenny's isn't open for lunch, so that eliminates one option. They open at 5:30 and get there early, since there are no reservations.
The one time I ate at Praline Connection it was not good. The food was room temperature and just average or below in taste. Hubby and I love Red Fish Grill and Bourbon House. Another place to go and at least have a drink is Napoleon House. I like the food there but others would say to just go for the Pimm's Cup and sit in the courtyard if you can. I love that place, muff, jambalaya, red beans and all! It's inexpensive and unpretentious. Last time we went and ate in the courtyard it rained but the umbrellas kept us dry. It was fun.
Dinners: Dick & Jenny's and Cochon
Lunch: Mr. B's and I would sub Casamento's or any little cafe on Magazine St.
Are you going to be downtown or uptown? Where are you staying? We can probably recommmend some places in walking distance if you want to walk to lunch.
I am not a fan of Jacque-Imo's because I have only been once and it was gross. I ordered some mahi mahi dish that tasted like teriyaki but wasn't supposed to be. It was also way more expensive than I thought it should be considering the decor and the food. If you get the fried chicken or other things they are famous for, you would probably enjoy it though. I love Dick & Jenny's and it is fun to wait and have drinks so don't worry about the wait.
Never been to the Praline Connection.
I would try Cafe Reconcile for lunch....good eats at very reasonable price. Also Dick and Jenny's and Cochon would be awesome meals. Went to both recently and was blown away at each, especially Cochon - true Cajun flavor!
