NOLA for NYC & Philly foodies

Coming into city for convention, have the following reservations: For dinner Restaurant August, Cochon & Dante's Kitchen. For Sunday brunch Commanders Palace or Muriel's. Any comments would be welcome! Not too sure which for Sunday brunch. Also would welcome any recs for breakfast/lunch/cocktails!!

  1. Commander’s is an experience you shouldn’t miss. Your other choices are fine. Enjoy your trip.

    1. Check out Maurapass Foods for cocktails and snacks. Stanley! is a good breakfast/lunch stop.

      1. definitely commander's over Muriel's.

        1. For cocktails, Sylvain, Arnaud's French 75 Bar, and the Carousel Bar at the Hotel Monteleone.

          1. From a Philly vantage point-
            Commander's first - then you have the high bar everything else has to meet. Casual elegance that works so well. We liked Dante's. Interesting room and very good food. Had lunch at Cochon which was good but a bit rushed and we were underwhelmed. August is on the list to try. If you can get to Domenica's for their Happy hour M-F 3-6, amazing pizza cheap drinks and the Roosevelt Hotel. Not bad.
