Key aspect non-touristy dining spots. Most of these are uptown.  Some of the touristy places are worth it.  Bayona is amazing I don't know how touristy it is but it's in the quarter.  Galatoire'sAntoine's Restaurant and Commander's Palace Restaurantare classic New Orleans restaurants and are worth more than a visit.  That being said here are some of our go to places outside the Quarter:

Burgers: The Company Burger truburger

Gourmet: Patois and Coquette New Orleans two of our favorite places but can get on the pricey side.

Baru Bistro & Tapas on Magazine is great and near a really cool bar Bouligny Tavern

Affordable and great: The High Hat Cafe (southern cooking), Ancora Pizzeria (great Naples pizza), Wayfare (amazing cured meat sandwiches)

The best cheese shop with a "deli" menu is St. James Cheese Company right next to the best ice cream Creole Creamery.  If you do Creole Creamery a must have and I mean must have is the Mexican Hot Chocolate Milk Shake

Also don't overlook the food truck scene very creative in the city.  We routinely chase down Taceaux Loceaux (@TLNola) twitter for their scheduled route.

This place may have a bit of a touristy kick to it, but it is way too good to pass up while you're there. You absolutely must try Cafe Amelie. I think they change up their menu based on the season, but some of my favorites are the Satsuma Pepper Glazed Shrimp for an appetizer and the Amelie Shrimp Pasta.

Domilise's Po-Boy & Bar

You'll see Po-Boys everywhere in New Orleans ... but Domilise's has been around for 70 years and has the BEST Po Boys by far! It's a very small shop, so don't be discouraged by the line out the door, it moves pretty quick.  You can also go in the side door and grab a few drinks from the bar to help you pass the time in line :)

We were there about a year ago and just loved Camellia Cafe at 525 W Gause in Slidell, just outside New Orleans. It's a funky little place. If nothing else, get the bread pudding!

My favorite spot in New Orleans is Bacchanal Wine. Grab some wine and cheese in the front and then go sit in the courtyard and relax. They've got different artists each night, so check their website before you go and see who is playing.
