what's hot ? what's new?

Arriving NOLA day after Christmas for 4 days. We visit 2-3 / year and have been the majority of places usually noted several times. Anything new to check out? We have a car and any price range is cool. Thanks!

    1. re: Littleman

      I had a late lunch yesterday at the original, Carrollton Camellia, and it seemed a bit empty and dispirited. Was this an anomalous experience, or has the old dear fallen on hard times?

      626 S Carrollton Ave, New Orleans, LA 70118

      1. Capdeville - 520 Capdeville Street (just off Lafayette Square). Known for its lively bar scene, but people rave about the burgers and the truffle mac and cheese. The cocktails also get high marks, and they have some interesting specialties.

        Cafe Abyssinia - 3511 Magazine Street (2 blocks uptown of Louisiana ). Small mom-and-pop Ethiopian, opened last month. Has been getting very good notices and might make for a nice change of pace. Caveat: no liquor license, but Martin's Wine Cellar is just across the street.

        1. Dominiques, Meson 923, Le Foret, Oak and Bouligny are a few of the newest and best bets.

          Le Foret
          129 Camp Street, New Orleans, LA 70130

          1. Thanks all!! Great new ideas!!!
