first timers NOLA

Looking for feedback on restaurant choices:
Dinner @ Galatoires OR NOLAs? Would either be good for brunch/lunch?
I have reservations @ Brigstens and Cochon
On my list: Luizza's by the Track; Felix OR Acme

Any favorites on the way to Avery Island?

thanks for any suggestions.

  1. I don't know if you could choose two more widely different New Orleans restaurants than Galatoires and NOLA. Galatoires old line, classic atmosphere, classic food. NOLA warehouse chic, more New Orleans modern food with some national/international touches.
    Galatoires "personal" waiter, NOLA's with Emerils' team wait staff.

    If there is a line at Acme go to Felix's.

    New Iberia for lunch with the locals go to Bon Creole. For great soul food try Brenda's. For an old time cafeteria go to Victors, also full of locals
