Coming to New Orleans for the first time
If you're looking for chow tips, first take a look through our regional message boards. You'll find tens of thousands of useful postings, including literally hundreds of replies to oft-repeated questions such as "Where are the best ribs in the South?", "Where can I eat near Lincoln Center?"...and the ever-popular matter of Brunch.
When you post a query, you'll get better answers by being as specific as possible. "Coming from out of town, where should we eat?" is too broad to draw many helpful responses. "Where's a good place to eat lunch with kids in the Theater District, we'd like something for $20 per person or less?" or "What are my best sushi bets around 30th and 3rd?" are the types of questions most likely to draw good response. If you're posting on a statewide or regional board, please remember to include the city you're interested in - preferably somewhere in the title of your post.
