What's New NOLA?

Headed to New Orleans soon, and staying in the Quarter. I used to live there, and so I am planning on hitting a few old favorites, but is there anything new specifically in the Quarter you hounds would recommend (I seriously do eat everything, so no restrictions on types of food)? We have plans for 2 new places (new to us, anyway), Cure for cocktails/food and also reservations at Bistro Daisy Uptown. Any opinions on these two places? I am so looking forward to getting back to Stanley for breakfast....Thanks!

    Green Goddess (it's in the FQ) immediately comes to mind, Coquette, Domenica, American Sector, Luke (newish), Boucherie, Cure you already know..., Crescent Pie and Sausage Company. I can't think of any others at the moment for some reason, but those are all worthwhile (and all relatively different as well).

        Green Goddess is pretty new. Unique (to nola anyway), and delicious.

          If you haven't been to the Hermes bar at Antoine's in the Quarter, it's worth a visit for drinks and apps. I can't think of any new Quarter restaurants that I would recommend, but right across Canal Street, I would recommend Domenica at the Roosevelt Hotel and MiLa at the Pere Marquette Hotel. Both are excellent and worth a try. If you go to Domenica, stop in at the Sazerac for drinks before dinner.

          Bistro Daisy is very good, IMO. I haven't been for awhile now, but I have never had a bad meal. Also new-ish and very good uptown is Coquette. As for Cure, the building is fantastic, but I'm not a fan of the drinks or crowd. I can't speak for the food. Lots of people love it, I think it's just a personal issue, so I wouldn't tell you not to go.

              lived there 5 years ago, though I have not been since 2008...so, its been a long stretch this time, in between visits....
