eating in New Orleans
Mena's Palace is a local's favorite that serves NOLA comfort food for breakfast and lunch. They serve 25/30 different po boys. Johnny's Po Boy's is in the FQ on St. Louis and has outstanding po boys. El Gato Negro has great Mexican food using local ingredients. Clover Grill is open 24/7 for breakfast and good burgers and it's inexpensive. Rampart Food Store has good po boys. Antoine's, Mr. B's and Luke both have a 3 course prix fixe lunch for $20.00 if you want to step up a notch. Antoine's has 25 cent martini's at lunch. Luke has 50 cent oysters and half price drinks each weekday from 3 PM to 6 PM. Dine at the bar if you like. Domenica in The Roosevelt Hotel has half price pizza and half price drinks between 3 PM and 6 PM every weekday. Evelyn's Place is a great dive bar a block off Canal on Chartres Street with good gumbo and muffaletta's.

This will get moved to the New Orleans board, but go to Mr B's Bistro and have the BBQ Shrimp. Best thing I ate in NOLA. Get a muffalatta sandwich at Central Kitchen. Also the tasting menu at John Besh's Restaurant August is spectacular (if pricey) Have a great time in an awesome food city.
