We are traveling to New Orleans for a conference weekend in Jan. Our only free time is really for lunch on Friday. Can anyone reccommend something near the hotel (Hilton Airport) or airport with local flair and flavors??

    the above thread addresses a similar question. call first to see who is open for lunch though.

    I think Le Parvenu may be doing Friday lunch.

    here is a comprehensive list of Kenner restaurants:

    to the west of the airport on Airline Hwy is VooDoo BBQ. here's the menu:
    they do have some local items on their menu.

      from the NOMenu link, a couple suggestions

      Looking for a seafood fix, Johnny Trauth's Seafood Bistro will fill that bill

      Young's Garden has great chinese

      Fiesta Latina is awesome and reasonable - they serve Mexican and Honduran traditional dishes and they are also open for breakfast, and walking distance from the Hilton. Also Taqueria Sanchez is good, not as big of a menu as Fiesta Latina - their tres leche cake is to die for.

      Ristorante Da Piero is good

      Brick Oven Cafe is good, Italian and decent pizzas

      Messina's only does catering, the restaurant is closed

        Thanks for the link. When I read the post, I though, "heck, the server lost a bunch of replies."

        Deja Vu, all over again...
