      Second a lot of those places, particularly Casamento's and Elizabeth's. Cochon's pretty pricey. on the above list. Might want to check out Mahoney's and Parkway, along with Coffee Pot, ACME, and Bluebird. I don't much care for Jacques-Imo's, but a lot of people recommend that, too.

      For a splurge you can try Commander's Palace at lunch. 25 cent martinis, a lovely cemetery across the street, and a great walk down Magazine Street make for one of my favorite New Orleans days.

      Dry Dock is a ferry ride away. It's worth a try if you're looking for some Algerian adventure.

          +1 on Parkway and Mahony's [for the Peacemaker and onion rings]. In St. Bernard, Rocky & Carlo's or Tony's [beware the roast beef po-boy, though; the last one I had was mysteriously bland]. In N.O. East, Vietnamese po-boys at Dong Phuong. Also, I think some tourists know about it, but I'm a big fan of the fries at the Delachaise, too. And honestly, I like Juan's Flying Burrito.
