[relatively] light eats?

Hey Chowhounders -

I'm an out-of-towner getting married in N.O. in a couple of months. Naturally we're looking forward to the food and fun, but we also have to take it easy in the days leading up to the event if we want to be able to fit into our wedding clothes!

In a similar vein, my parents (who have never been to New Orleans) are looking forward to their visit but may not be up to the task of two three-course meals every day for five days.

Does anyone have recs for light dining? I mean, obviously we can just skip appetizers and desserts -- however difficult that may be -- but I wonder if anyone has particular recommendations, either for dishes or for restaurants. Thanks to all -
