help for a long weekend

First time in NO getting in at 7:30 pm staying at Westin Canal Place. I have gift certificate to GW Fins so that is the only given. Here is sorta what I plan-

Sat night Acme Oyster House

Sun early Cafe du Monde

Sun Brunch Brennans

Sunday dinner GW fins

Monday -- no plans, thought I may have to do GW fins on Monday because so much is closed and think they are open.

So need help to fill in the holes, open to anything, literally as long as it doesn't move. Trying to stay fairly moderate in prices, have never had a good po boy so suggestions for that would be good,

Thanks, Cappie

  1. You'll find more rest. open Monday for dinner than Sunday. Johnny's in FQ has decent poboys or take Canal streetcar and walk a few blocks to Parkway. I'd skip Brennan's. Try Commander's instead. St. Charles streetcar to Washington Ave. then walk a couple blocks (toward the river) to Coliseum. Big, bright turquoise building, can't miss it.
