    I've been touting St. Lawrence in the Quarter pretty hard. Their fried chicken is -- to my thinking -- exceptional. I could, of course, be misguided in that ... if you try it, report back. I'm not a huge fan of Fiorellas; Coops is good but I'd never wait in line for it (or much else).

    Also at St. L.'s you can have a Pimms Cup slushie, which if you're in the mood for a slushie is perfectly drinkable.

      This may be out of the way but I last week when I was in town I had the lunch buffet at Li'l Dizzy's on Esplanade (near Clairborne) It featured their fried chicken - the chicken batter was light but crispy, had very good flavor, chicken was moist but not greasy at all - glad I took the "long stroll" from the Quarter (I do walk a lot during the day) Was thinking about walking further into the Treme to Dookie Chase but remembered they were not open that day.
