New Orleans in July

emti5 Feb 1, 2013 09:02 AM

Hi all...I'll be in New Orleans from July 3-8 and I'm looking for advice on where to eat
I'll be staying near the Superdome but won't have access to a car
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    Can you give us some clues, as to what you are looking for?

    In the CBD (Central Business District), there are many choices, but they differ pretty greatly.

    Are you adverse to a cab, or is walking a must?

    It will be warm, and likely rainy, so dress accordingly.

      I always thought of winter as our rainy season. July is usually hot and humid with more passing showers rather than all day rain, no?

      We will be there the week after. Commander's for Monday lunch. Take the trolley. No need for a car and after 25 cent martini's you would not want to. R'evolution as a return splurge on Saturday night. Can you clarify what you are looking for? High end, local, Famous Chef?

            I've been there in July; it will be helpful to know that Pat O'Brien's has the best air condtitioning in the French Quarter.
