Taking my teenage boys on a college road trip. Need suggestions for not to miss lunches or dinners in Houston (near Rice), New Orleans (near Tulane), Nashville (near Vanderbilt) or St Louis (near WUSTL). Thank you!

    In St Louis, recommend Gerard Craft's restaurant Pastaria. Fabulous home made pastas with a modern take, casual and won't break the bank. The house made salted caramel gelato is phenomenal.
    Other area close to Wash U that is fun is the loop in University City - home of Seoul Taco a Korean taco joint and Three Kings Public House as well as Pi Pizzeria a favorite of President Obamas. Enjoy!

        For New Orleans do a search for previous threads on uptown, Magazine Street, Feret Street, Oak Street. There are many good choices for inexpensive yet good lunches in the general area of Tulane
