    Breakfast at Brennan's
    For lunch: Gumbo and crawdads at Acme Oyster Bar
    Dinner at The Court of Two Sisters

    Also: Tujague's, Antoine's, Broussard's and many many more

    House of Blues always has good music and good food. Check out their website and order tickets and reservations in advance. When you go eat dinner, the waiter will bring your tickets for the music venue.

    You really cannot get a bad meal anywhere in New Orleans

    Whoaa.....where to eat in south Louisiana?!?

    In N.O., breakfast at The cafe' DuMond! Jackson Square(the garden district) is right there and the French Quarter's just a hop-skip-n'a jump away.

    As Patti said, hard to go wrong in N.O.
    Red Stick is just as good. As a rule of thumb.....and I grew up almost exactly between Batron Rouge and N.O......it's the lesser establishments that some of the best food is to be had. What I mean is those places that are not the five star, $100-a-plate affiars but those places that don't require ya'll to be 'dressed up'.

    A few places in the B.R. area.......I've been to all of these places.......

    One nice place is Copelands of Baton Rouge in B.R. and N.O.

    Drusilla Seafood

    I really like Mike Anderson's Seafood

    Tony's Seafood ........Tony's was really liked by my family



    If you love seafood you'll leave Louisiana two pant sizes bigger and happier than my dad with full crawfish nets!

    I haven't been to New Orleans since 2004, but these places are still there. They were much frequented by me during my 14 year sojourn in the Big Easy. These are not the big name places or the ones that get a lot of publicity, but rather are the ones that locals eat at.

    Koz’s, 6215 Wilson, Harahan (Until Katrina the people who run this had The Bakery on Franklin Avenue.) We are talking real local food here.

    Don's Seafood Hut, 4801 Veterans Memorial Boulevard,
    Metairie. I have to go to Don's when I am in the New Orleans area. I always get the boiled shrimp. It is served hot right out of the boiling water. It comes with the potatoes and corn cooked in the same water. With some cocktail sause it is the best. When you finish your lips will be burning and your fingers will too. All the spices will have penetrated the skin on your fingers. Be sure to have a long neck Barq's with your meal.

    Deanie's, 1713 Lake Ave. Metairie. Right on Lake Pontchartrain in the area known as Bucktown.

    About 40 miles out of New Orleans on I55 is the small town of Manshac, LA (mailing address is Akers). If you like to eat and are going to be in the NO/BR area you owe it to yourself to eat at Middendorf's in Manshac.

    What was possibly the best place to eat in New Orleans did not reopen after Katrina. Bruning's on Lake Pontchartrain operated in the same location for 140 years. Then in 1998 the building was destroyed by Hurricane Georges. The family reopened three weeks later about a block from the former location, but did not reopen after Katrina wiped out the new location. That is a real shame.

    I've got to quit because I am about to starve to death.

    NOLA, Emeril's place in the French Quarter. Best luck getting a table at lunch time without a reservation.

    +1 to all of the above. I'll also add another place to eat while in Baton Rouge - Brunet's (Brunet's Cajun Restaurant - Baton Rouge's Best Cajun Food). If you want some great food, great service, and a quieter atmosphere then this is the place.

    Cafe Du Monde is good, but beignets and chicory coffee is a snack.

    Now, this is what I prefer:

    A Typical New Orleans Breakfast

    Brandy Milk Punch or Creole Bloody Mary
    Start with an eye opener!

    Southern Baked Apple with Cream

    Eggs Hussarde...A Brennan's Original!
    One of the dishes that put "Breakfast at Brennan's" on the map. Poached eggs atop Holland rusks, Canadian bacon and Marchand de Vin sauce. Topped with Hollandaise sauce.

    Brennan's Hot French Bread

    Bananas Foster
    A Brennan Creation and now World Famous -- Bananas sautéed in butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and banana liqueur then flamed in rum. Served over vanilla Ice Cream

    It's traditional to have wine with breakfast at Brennan's -- we recommend: Pouilly Fuisse, Louis Jadot

    And, of course, some grits (southern style).

    My favorite wine............just because of the pronunciation.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.
