Need help with a weekend in New Orleans

Hi all...last minute request as usual! My hubs surprised me with a last minute weekend away without our kids. We love good food, fancy or casual, as long as it uses fresh ingredients, is creative, or just plain delicious. Any suggestions for lunch and dinner? If we can get reservations for 1 nice dinner out, where should we go? It doesn't have to be creole or cajun. Also, any good places to sit at the bar and have a good cocktail? We live on the westside of Atlanta, which is ripe with great farm to table restaurants, cool bars for grownups, and a bit of an industrial feel. We love that kind of vibe. Thanks for any help! I leave tomorrow so don't let me down! :)

    1. Breakfast:
      Croissant D'Or on Ursuline (btw Chartres & Royal) is great for a light breakfast; wonderful croissants and delicious coffee in a peaceful setting.

      For a full breakfast in the Quarter, The Old Coffee Pot (btw Royal & Bourbon). If you have a car, Surrey's Uptown, 4807 Magazine St.
