Short visit...how do these places sound?

Finding that there are so many great places to eat in NOLA! Our short trip 26-30 will not allow us to hit them all :(. Here's what I'm thinking:

Sat: Dinner at Cochon Butcher (or Cochon)

Sun: Lunch at Champion Square before game
Dinner at Mr B's

Mon: Lunch at Commander's Palace
Dinner at Liuzza's by the Track

Tues: Breakfast at Ruby Slipper
Lunch at Johnny's po-boy
Dinner at Boucherie

Want mostly local cuisine. Want to have gumbo, bbq shrimp and a po-boy for sure. Jambalaya would be good too. Any other local dishes to try?

    Well, you never know BUT I wonder about trying to get into Mr B's after the Saints' game. Don't see anything wrong with the choices: appear to me to cover lots of stuff.

      When you say Champions Square are you talking Dome concessions?

      While crowded better bets are Bourne in the hotel and even the jazz brunch at Little Gem Saloon.

        No, not dome concessions. I thought that outside the dome (no game ticket required) was Champion Square where there were food vendors that vary each game and drinks and music. Am I wrong?

        Acme Oyster for lunch if you like oysters and gumbo. I do not know when the game starts on Sunday but Sunday brunch at Commander's Palace is special (garden room).
        Must have cafe' au lait and beignets at Café Du Monde as they are the best in town in my opinion.
