After spending countless of hours researching for my 4 day trip including the great recs from this forum we couldn't have been more thrilled with the outcome. Here's what we did...
Lunch: Coquette, Commander's Palace, Mr B's, Drago's, Cochon Butcher (muff to go)
Dinner: Herbsaint, GW Fins, SoBou, Boucherie
Not a bad meal. Never happened on any trip
Breakfast/Brunch: Atchafalya, Elizabeth's, Ye Olde Coffee Pot, Stanley
Lunch: Cochon Butcher, Parkway, Commander's Palace, Muriel's
Happy Hour (3-6 pm) Domenica...all pizzas and wines by the glass at half price, (4-6 pm) Three Muses for live music with good small plates and cocktails
Dinner: Herbsaint, GW Fins, Coquette, Galatoire's, Emeril's (original flagship), Mr. B's (stick to BBQ shrimp and Gumbo YaYa)
Restaurant Révolution can be "crazy expensive" but can also be affordable with some exercise of restraint.
