We will be in NO for 4 1/2 days....
Dinners planned- GW Finns, R'evolution, Dantes and either Coquette or ?
Lunches- Parkway, Cochon Butcher, Cassamentos and either Coquette or ?
We also like to wander and have raw oysters during the day.
Any thoughts or suggestions???
It’s perfect. I might throw in a breakfast/brunch instead of one of the lunches though. We have some awesomly decadent brunch food. Nothing like a pain perdu or a eggs sardou to start your day. Cafe Atchafalaye, Dantes, Old Coffee Pot, Surry’s are some of my favorites. Also, if you’ve never been, Commander’s Palace would be a nice addition to your list. You don’t have any of the old-school traditional restaurants.
oystes 1/2 shell:
Luke 3-6 daily HH. 50 cent oysters, 1/2 price libations. order all your dozens at once. Service is sloooow.
Superior Seafood 4-6:50 daily. 50 cent oysters, 2 for 1 frozen mojitos, 1/2 off house wine bottles, $3 draft. Take streetcar to Napoleon . Corner Napoleon/St. Charles.
FWIW, lunch at Commander's is better than dinner. 25 cent martinis make for a festive time in the garden room. August offers 3 courses $20.12. Lunch m-f.
While Coquette is very good, it's still a poor man's August.
We had reservations for lunch at August, but they called to say they would be closed for some sort of renovation or something during our stay. So, even though we have been to Commanders and not to Herbsaint or Coquette....do you think we should do Commanders for lunch? Only thing...what is the dress code....husband will not have a jacket with him and we are not planning for any jacket restaurants....
