Default New Orleans?

I've got to be there next week. I've got a hotel on Canal Street and no car. Is there any decent food in the city? I tried Bojangles once and wasn't too impressed. Maybe someone can chime in with some different recommendations.

You don't need a car. Get a bus / train all day pass.

The char broiled oysters at the Casino, I think Orleans.

John Folse restaurant Revolution is good

http://www.revolutionnola.com/index.html

We did not get a reservation so had to wait for a table to open at the bar. The bone marrow was excellent.

Forget the chains and hit the little gems around the city.




Took the ferry and had a good time at a bar on the other side, just can't remember the name.

I'll ask MSD - she remembers things I swear never happened?

I have only been there once and did enjoy it. Hopefully some locals can advise on the hidden great places the local frequent.

Actually, that's not too bad. The only problem is that I didn't bring a suit jacket with me. Mine got soaked in beer when one of the bottles I was bringing back from Austin broke -- farkin' baggage handlers.

I'll have to save that for when I take my wife. She's pretty sore that I had to go to New Orleans without her.

That looks mighty tasty. I really should save that for my wife too.... Dang, aren't there some less fancy restaurants in this city? I really don't want to do Bojangles again. I know they made a song about the restaurant, but I just wasn't too impressed.

I've only been a couple times and am not too knowledgeable about the restuarants, but one of the best meals I had was at a place we just ran across and didn't really look like a restaurant at all - broken screen door, no sign, etc. We were curious, looked inside, saw tables, and went in and sat our arses down and proceeded to eat an incredible meal. So go there and you'll be glad you did.

New Awlins is a foodies paradise. Sadly I haven't been there but once and it was a short trip. If I Ever win the lottery I'll go there and spend a lot of money on fine food at the numerous legendary 'raunts. I'm jealous. Enjoy!

Isn't Bojangle's a chain? You can't judge a city by the franchises they have!

I liked Acme's and Deanie's for seafood. Charbroiled oysters from Acme's and pretty much everything from Deanie's. Oceania if you want to add a little more class to your dining experience. They stayed opened during Hurricane Isaac to feed the locals/tourists down there so it will always have my props. If you can grab an Uber I definitely recommend Willie Mae's Scotch House for their fried chicken.

ok OK. I'm going to get LuzziAnn in on this one. All I'll say is Uber! No ride too short and cheap. Now as to where to eet, here she is:

Hi, Gore Ann here. I have some great restaurants for you to try. Palace Cafe on Canal Street is owned by the Brennan family and is the same cuisine as Commanders Palace but at a more reasonable price.

Drago's Restaurant in the Hilton by the Riverfront. Charbroiled Oysters on the half shell. Mother's Restaurant is close to Canal Street. It is very good. For Breakfast The Ruby Slipper can't be beat. You must visit Cafe' du Monde at the Farmer's Market.

Mike back. She's wore out from doing yard chores and working overtime for the new Bass Rig but those are excellent places. Cake du monde is known for their world famous beignets.

Thanks all, just for the record, I'm well aware that Bojangles is a chain; however, I did discover another local restaurant that is famous for their fried chicken called Popeyes. I haven't been there yet, but figured I should give it a try.

Despite nobody mentioning Popeyes yet, I did get some excellent advice and know because I did try a few places mentioned already, including Mother's, Cafe du Monde, and Central Grocery. Anyway, I'll see how many of these other places I can squeeze in. I'm also at the conference center during the day. I noticed there is the Ugly Dog Saloon and BBQ just two blocks away. Is this ok for a quick lunch?
