Faubourg Marigny

Thanks to all of you guys, our itinerary is almost complete.

Friday night: Mr. B's for dinner

Saturday morning: Cafe DuMonde then bloody mary's at Carousel Lounge (where we are staying)

Lunch at Galatoire's

Dinner...still up in the air??? I will probably let some of the others choose since I have pretty much planned the entire trip!!! However, I am the maid-of-honor;)
Someone in our group has mentioned Angeli's??? She claims it is b/c they serve very late and we will probably want a later dinner but I think it is b/c she has read that Brad Pitt likes it!!! Crazy, I know.

Sunday on the way out: Port of Call

I am very interested in going over to Faubourg Marigny and hanging out at some of the bars Saturday night.

Any recommendations?? We definitely want to watch the MSU/LSU game (Go Dawgs!!) but from what I have read almost all of the bars will have televisions.

Thanks for all your help! We are so excited!!

      Don't forget that Lost Love Lounge has a great Vietnamese kitchen hidden in the back. Pho King is churning out delicious bun, pho, spring rolls and bánh mì.

    2. Not sure if you're a fan of Japanese food at all ackisner but Yuki's izakaya is on Frenchman and they don't even open till 7pm so they do serve late. Their selection of sake/shochu is extensive, they do have live music in house and their food is great for munching on while watching the world go by.

      Let me know if you go :)

        Sounds like a cool place. I will talk to our group and make sure everyone is okay w/Japanese food. I love it...I lived in Hawaii for 4 years and ate my fair share.

        1. re: ackisner

          Yuki's is wonderful, but not the typical sushi bar or hibachi. Make sure your group understands this is a Izakaya (Japanese equivalent of a tapas bar). You may want to check out the menu before you go

          1. re: paz5559

            Very true paz5559 I probably should have mentioned that in my post, my bad. Though they do have a selection of raw fish ( sashimi ) items on the menu most of what I had was cooked. Octopus dumplings ( takoyaki), fried tiny crabs, cod roe and grated daikon, potato krokke (Croquette), dried and grilled fish. Her menu's on that book-with-the face and the space that's mine ;)

            1. re: paz5559

              love Yuki's. and the curry udon noodles are out of this world good. snow crab pinxto are another fav, as are the crab dumplings.

              1. re: kibbles

                Damn. I knew I should have snacked there everynight when I was in town! I noticed the pinxto on the menu and didn'r order it kibbles. Isn't it a Basque homage or something? How are the dumpling done/served?

                1. re: bourbonstjoe

                  yeah, pintxo is basically basque tapas, but in the basque region they are a bit bigger and priced independently of bar drinks, whereas tapas are often small and lumped w/ your drinks. i love both since they have the effect of pulling people into bars at happy hour in spain..very social.

                  the crab dumplings are rather simple -- small, round, lightly fried if i recall, dipping soy sauce.

        2. Desperados Pizza on Frenchmen is open lateish and is way way way way better than Angeli.

            two totally different pizza variants, i enjoy them both since they are not mutually exclusive. both much better than the national slop.
