Lunch Recs

I am planning a trip to NOLA in May. I think I have all the dinner options picked, but I need help with some lunch choices, especially for a Monday. Lunch on Monday will be our last meal in New Orleans and we want it to be great! Please help!

  1. The traditional luncheon meal on Monday's in New Orleans is red beans and rice. In what area of the city will you be?

      We are staying in the French Quarter.

    2. Just back from NO, lunch at Luke was the best meal this trip. I had the pressed cochon de lait sandwich which is served with a cone of the best french fries, my DC had the Luke burger also served with fries. The burger was very, very good, but we agreed the cochon de lait was one of the best things we have ever eaten.

        1. Acme Oyster House.
          Central Grocery.
          Coffee Pot.
          Coop's Place.
          Court of Two Sisters.
          Crescent City Brewhouse.
          Deanie's Seafood.
          Gumbo Shop.
          Johnny's Po-Boys.
          Mena's Palace.
          Mr. B’s.
          Napoleon House.
          Port of Call.
          Rib Room.

            I love Court of Two Sisters, however, the food is plebian. The atmosphere is great, I must go on every visit.

            Try to get seated at Ed's station, he has been waiting tables there forever and is such an excellent wait person.

            The good, eggs benedict, the breakfast meats, grillades and grits, turtle soup.

            The okay, french toast.

            The bad, remoulade.

            The rest is medicore but the ambience is worth the money, $28 for brunch

          2. I kind of like Cafe Adelaide in the Lowe's Hotel on Poydras:

            I ESPECIALLY like the 25 cent martinis!
