Restaurants in New Orleans

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

My wife and I will be heading to New Orleans in a few months and are planning to eat at The Green Goddess, Luke for breakfast, Carmo for a lunch,  Sucre for sweets and NOLA or GW Fins for a lunch or dinner. Any recommendations from the group?

 

Thanks JimA

I'm a NOLA native. My favorite place to eat down there right now is Couchon.  And you can't go wrong with the biegnets at Cafe Du Monde in the French Quarter.

Cafe Du Monde was a given at some point in time and maybe two times because my wife loves the place and we will add Couchon to our list. I checked it out before I sent the question out and your response helped me decide to go there for a lunch or dinner.

 

We are looking forward to our visit to.

 

Thanks for your advise.

Not sure if I'm too late, there are lots of great restaurants on Magazine St, I like Vizard's http://vizards.net/Welcome.html or try Bayona on Dauphine St if you have some time. It's delicious but not a place to go if you are in a hurry, more of a sit on the patio and relax sorta restaurant.

Thanks for your recommendtions and you  aren't too late and we will check them out when we get to NOLA. One place we really want to go back to is The Rum House   rumhousenola.com....great taco's and I'm not a taco person, but they were excellent. Vizards looks like an interesting place to eat!

 

Thanks JimA

Luke...May the force (meat) be with you! (Sorry I couldn't help myself). I've a soft spot for Susan Spicers place so that would rate very high on my list. However no trip to NOLA would be complete for me without a stop @ Cochon Butcher for a Muffaletta. There's so many great choices in NOLA but Herbsaint would also be worthy of consideration.

I think the most wonderful thing in the world is another chef. I'm always excited about learning new things about food.

If you haven't made the trip yet don't forget;

 

The Burger Company (Get the Lamb Burger)

Dat Dog

Port o' Call (Not necessary but always an experience, go early)

I'll Second Cochon & Sucre

Herbsaint

Coquette

Bacchanal for Wine and Cheese in assorted lawn chairs behind a shack (it's the atmosphere my friend)

Bouligny Tavern

Mauerpas

 

Many more floating through my head, I just can't think of all the names.  Best of luck, I love that city!

Verdi Marte near the Quarter and the Marigny.  Party on Frenchman (way better and less touristy than the Quarter) street, listen to live music, and get an All That Jazz sandwich from Verdi Marte.  Your hangover will thank you later.

 

Cochon was good, a bit overrated.  If youre going for a muffaletta, I'd go to the original at Central Grocery.

We are back from NOLA a few weeks now and  ate burgers at Port of Call, dinner at Emerils NOLA, Green Goddess for lunch, Cafe Du Monde twice for coffee and biegnets, Couchons for lunch, The Rum House for tacos and The Italian Barrel at 430 Barracks st. for diner.

 

They were all great eating. I especially enjoyed  a jumbo lump crab salad and a veal chop at the Italian Barrel and I would recommend any of thes for a place to eat.

 

Thanks for all the recommendations.

 

Jim
