        So many wonderful restaurants in town. Mandina's on Sunday is good. You can try Mat and Naddie's for non red meat options. Boucherie is excellent, too, and always has one seafood and one vegan dish on the menu.

        What neighborhood do you want to be in?

            In the 800 block of Magazine is Donald Link's new seafood restaurant, Peche.

            It has received nice reviews, here, and is near the top of our list for our visit in six weeks.

            Boucherie's an excellent choice -- I wouldn't hesitate to make a reservation. On the other side of town both Maurepas Foods and Mariza offer top notch veg & fish options; I recommend both highly. In addition, you can't go too wrong with the food from Herbsaint.

            Bacchanal always has fish on the menu and -- unless they're too busy -- a great atmosphere. If they are too busy and you're all the way down there at the end of the world, Jack Dempsey's, just down the street on Poland, does a mean fried fish plate and serves chalices of icy cold Abita.

            Adolpho's -- upstairs from the Applebarrel on Frenchmen -- always has fresh fish. It's not perfect but I still enjoy it if it doesn't involve waiting for a table (it's not worth that).

            EAT, in the FQ, is under-recommended. They're BYOB but don't charge corkage. Also in the Quarter is the Green Goddess which is veg friendly. Cochon is (obviously) meat heavy but their non-meat offerings aren't at all second rate (in fact, they're often the most memorable parts of a Cochon meal).

        Redfish isn't so bad. Have the barbecued oysters there as a snack. The butternut squash soup is also pretty good. Quick bites.

        Cure has a great happy hour. Luke and Domenica have amazing specials. Good luck.
