    Our favorite restaurants were La Petite Grocery for contemporary, Commander's Palace Restaurant for high-end and historic, Arnaud's Restaurant for fancy and historic, Cochon Butcher for muffulettas, Gumbo Shop for gumbo, and Parkway Bakery & Tavern for po'boys. Our favorite cocktail places were 21st Amendment Bar at La Louisiane for music and fun cocktails, Bourbon "O" Bar for craft cocktails, and Carousel Bar for historic cocktails and getting to sit at a rotating bar.

    The hardest thing will be trying to sample as much as possible in a weekend! We spent a week in NOLA and didn't get to try as much as we wanted.

    I wrote a few articles about New Orleans food and cocktails which you might enjoy looking at to help with your planning.

    Quick weekends and NOLA don't work... too many choices! Get some wormwood at Old Absinthe House for a unique cocktail. GW Fins is a great restaurant in the French Quarter, but you need to narrow you're search for more specific ideas.

    I'm here right now and have been here for several days eating and drinking and biking my way around the city. I tend to not do the touristy stuff with the exception of Commander's Palace Restaurant for a boozy lunch. If you want to eat ridiculously and with the locals, here is what I recommend:

    • Cake Cafe & Bakery for an amazing breakfast or brunch. Open almost every day and early, I had the biscuits with sausage and gravy one day and the shrimp and grits the other. Holy moly. Skip the cupcake--meh. Adorable place filled with neighborhood people. MARIGNY
    • Toast for breakfast or brunch. I'm sorry to report I had MORE biscuits and gravy and these blew my socks off. My friend had delicious avocado and poached egg on toast. UPTOWN.
    • St Roch Market for one of the best coffees in the city. And then a great place to stop in first for the night and have a glass of wine and some oysters before moving on for dinner. It's a bunch of upscale food stalls serving different food with a bar and lots of tables mixed around. Hip, lively and a great mix of people from the neighborhood. ST. ROCH
    • We had lots of incredible, inexpensive dinners in the back of the MARIGNY bars such as Lost Love Lounge and Siberia.
    • Avery's On Tulane was a nice surprise thanks to Yelp as it ended up having the only Po Boy of the few I've had that I could recommend. We also had awesome gumbo there. Low key place near TULANE.
    • Cochon Butcher for a muffuletta. I thought theirs was the best. WAREHOUSE DISTRICT.
    • Three Muses is a great place for dinner and music. It's on FRENCHMAN st which has gotten a little cray-cray a la Bourbon St, gut this restaurant remains delicious and a great place to partake of the Frenchman's vibe without being overwhelmed.
    • Of the prototypical New Orleans creole/cajun places in the Quarter, I like Muriel's Jackson Square the best.
    • Willie Mae's Scotch House in TREME for southern food, fried chicken, etc. THe weekends get crazy, so a weekday might be better.
    • Sylvain in the QUARTER is a chic, hip foodie Italian restaurant with a lovely backyard.


    Have a great time!!!

      Excellent! Thank you! I love that you've taken to the bike to see the city. I plan to do the same. Greatly appreciate the 'eat like a local' suggestions. Looking forward checking out a couple. · (0 likelikes)

      Great! It's a really bikeable city--totally flat, lots of bike lanes and pretty good roads. PS if you're a coffee snob like me, Spitfire on St. Peter in the quarter is also really great. Have a great time, bring lots of loose, linen-y clothing. Laissez les bon temps rouler! · (1 likelikes)
