Best bites in the Quarter?
I am bringing a few friends to NOLA for the first time at the end of the month. I have been multiple times already..I thought it might be a good idea to take them on a small plates crawl through the Quarter, as we only have a few days. So here's my question - what are the Quarters best bites/small plates? Figured we'd meander around and stop here and there for a bite/cocktail. I saw a post or two around the board but then couldn't find them again. We will be travelling by foot. Staying on lower Magazine St. So I guess, anywhere from there to Marigny area. I really appreciate you guys helping me show my friends a good time!
If you are truly looking for "bites", Mimi's in the marigny has very good hot/cold tapas & nice cocktails - its a really cool place to hang out as well
I found, at least in the quarter, unless you're looking for oyster preps, that the quarter isn't exactly a place to eat small - most everything I've found is a pretty ample portion
There are def. bars w/ good food i.e. Coop's Place & Yo Mama's come to mind, but other than that I'm drawing a blank...

Onion rings and crab au gratin at the Bon Ton (OK, not so small....)
Southern Candymakers pralines for dessert
(I guess Cafe Du Monde beignets are too obvious)
