Please let me know some places you like to eat in New Orleans that are reasonable and enjoyable. I know about famous restaurants there, but money is an object with our group. It's a city well-known for excellent food, like Charleston, so we're looking forward to the food and the sights! Suggestions anyone? We'll be going in a couple of weeks and will be there Saturday night, all day Sunday, and Monday morning, October 10-12, and are staying on Julia near Riverwalk and will be there and in the French Quarter.
I should have mentioned that I've been there before and have of course been to Cafe du Monde and will do that again. That has to be done, right? :-) We also ate at the Acme Oyster Bar and another place that I can't remember the name of. It was away from the Quarter somewhere, and someone else treated me to that dinner. I know what you mean about Hurricanes at Pat O'Brien's! I had one and it was definitely enough. It's so much fun singing along there and like a party in itself!
I also got a tour of Paul Prudhomme's kitchen and restaurant K-Paul's. I was peeping in the window, and a guy who works there came out. I told him I just wanted to see inside. It was closed since it was in the afternoon. He asked if I wanted to come in and look around, so I did!
New Orleans isn't like any other place, is it? I also want to go there again and stay longer and see more. There's a list of other cities and places I want to go and others to visit again.
