Meal Itinerary Easter Week

dmlewis Mar 6, 2013 05:36 PM

My husband and I are headed back to New Orleans Easter week. We've been to New Orleans many times, but I still get overwhelmed trying to decide on meals. We are staying in the Marigny. We usually like to have fancy lunches and more casual dinners.

Here's what I have so far:
Wed dinner- Adolfo's - I won't be arriving until 6ish Wed., so I'd like to eat close to our place.

Thurs lunch- Restaurant August
Thurs dinner- Maurepas - planning to go to Vaughns to see Kermit Ruffins afterwards which is close

Fri lunch- Cochon butcher
Fri dinner- Luke

Sat lunch- Cafe Amelie or Clancys
Sat dinner- Acme Oysters

Sun lunch- Stanley
Sun dinner- Three Muses

    I would absolutely pick Clancy's over Cafe Amelie, but Clancy's isn't open for lunch on Saturdays I don't believe.

    If you're looking for something uptown with a nice bistro feel, consider Le Petite Grocery, Coquette, or Lilette, all of which do Saturday lunch.

      You are right about Clancy's being closed. And I think the other three are all good chouices. For some reason my first thought was Petite Grocery but the others are delightful as well.

      Saturday dinner? Well, I have my problems with ACME but the oysters there have been good according to a supplier I keep up with.. No idea about Stanley or Three Muses for Easter Sunday..never been to either on that day since my dance card is full months before.

        Thanks for the info on Clancy's! I had been looking at Le Petite, so maybe we will try that.
