    Cafe Adelaide in the Lowe's Hotel has a good breakfast, as does the already mentioned Red Gravy.

    Regarding dinner within walking distance: the Bon Ton is on Magazine St., Restaurant August on Tchoupitoulas St. and La Foret on Camp St.

      I wouldnt recommend it for dinner only because it’s Italian food and there are so many more indigenous restaurants and really good ones within walking distance to your hotel. By the way, they’re doing construction on that Sheraton so make sure you are as far from the noise as possible.

        Good point! We've got plenty of great Italian in NYC.

        Anyplace you'd recommend for dinner near there?

          Herbsaint, Sylvain, Sobou, Domenica, Restaurant August and Le Foret are all within a short walk.

        Yes. It's open for dinner Thurs and Fri. and possibly Sat....not certain about the latter. My husband and I had an evening meal there last October (Tuscan Shrimp and Andouille over Polenta and Veal Marsala)....divine. I believe the menu changes. You can check the website and link to Facebook for current options.

          Thanks, 'hounds! Looks yummy.

          Would you recommend Red Gravy for dinner too?

            I totally agree with shanefink. Red Gravy is our favorite breakfast spot. Do allow a little time because the food is prepared when ordered using fresh ingredients. It shouldn't slow you down for your conference if you build in just a few extra minutes....trust me, it'll be worth it.

              Try Red Gravy across the street on Camp.
