Wanting to try all new restaurants on this trip

Kind of a two fold question, looking to hit all new spots for both fine dining and po boys.

Will have 2 nights and looking for the best of the best, tasting menu would be preferred but not critical. Also will have 2 lunches and kind of looking for the same thing - the best lunch available in the city.

Here's where we've been:
Commanders, Emerils, Mr Bs, August, Antoines, Arnauds, Brennans, Pelican Club, GW Fins, Nola, Clancys, Lilette, Galatoires, Upperline, Peristyle, Delmonico, and Brigtsens.

Then have 1 more lunch opening and looking for the best oyster po-boy. We've been to: Mothers, Bourbon House, Acme, Ugelisichs (RIP), Mr Bs, Dragos.

Thanks for your help.

                I am in agreement on those two suggestions, plus the one for Crabby Jack's for po-boys. If one has not done Parkway, then that would be a must-dine for me for po-boys.
