Saturday Lunch or Sunday Restaurants
I am a New Yorker looking for cajun/creole/southern/new orleans-style restaurants in New Orleans that are open for saturday lunch or anytime on Sunday. I would ideally like to try the following restaurants in my 3 day trip to NO but I don't think I can fit them all in and none of them are open Saturday lunch or Sunday:
Cafe Adelaide (what are people's thoughts on this place?)
Suggestions?? Does anyone think the above restaurants are too touristy? I would prefer more "local" joints - particularly with a good crawfish boil. Location is not a problem as long as we can take a cab or street car from the convention center area + we are used to walking a lot.
Thanks in advance.
-For a cool neighborhood vibe and "no reservations", I'd substitute Dick and Jenny's for Jacques-Imo.
-If you're looking at Deanie's in Metairie, I'd go with Drago's instead (not in the Hilton).
-Thumbs up on Cochon.
-I'd walk around the corner to August instead of Adelaide.
Not sure of hours/days off hand. Easy enough to google.
Deanie's is open for lunch and dinner Sat and Sunday.
I'm sure you can get your crawfish at places other than a restaurant, i'd look into Big Fisherman or KJean's, get the crawfish and head someplace to eat them, that's the best way to eat crawfish.
And fwiw, you don't go to a crawfish boil at a restaurant, a crawfish boil is an event that lasts for hours, from prep time where you drink beer and watch or help the cook to the soak time where you drink more beer and build the expectation of the first hot juicy crawfish and potatoes and mushrooms and artichokes and sausage, to the clean up and sitting around and drinking more beer....god I miss home.
