I'll be visiting New Orleans for a weekend in December. What are the places that I absolutely must check out? I'm usually up for just about anything, but I like to eat at places that are unique to the area.

    Also Cafe Amelie is great for brunch

        A few of my favorites:

        Napoleon House (lunch casual)
        Stella (elegant dinner)
        Bon Ton (lunch or dinner)
        Parkway (poboys - casual)
        NoLa Grocery (very casual - take out cajun meat poboys)

          New Orleans has some great restaurants and quite a few are unique to the City.

          It would help to know a few things about your trip.

          Where will you be staying?
          Car, or does the rec. need to be within cab, public trans, walking distance?
          Any $ amount?
          Casual, funky, elegant?
          Days of the week might also rule out a few places.

          Most of all, dine well and have a great time,
