New Orleans: 2 Day Trip/ Food Itinerary

Jump to last reply

I am bringing my finance to New Orleans in mid August. We are both from NY and neither of us have been there before. We are staying at the intercontinental, which I believe is fairly convenient to most points of interest. My rough outline of our two full days in New Orleans involved getting in on Friday around 11- then spending the day exploring the french quarter and the garden district. On saturday we wanted to do either a Katrina tour, or maybe a bayou trip and then spend the latter half of the day walking around the quarter some more. We leave first thing sunday morning.

In regards to food, we do not eat shellfish or pork -- so I realize that puts us at a severe disadvantage in New Orleans. However, we both want to get as much local flavor (excuse the pun) as possible (given our dietary restrictions). We want local places and would like to avoid the garden variety celebrity restaurants that we could find in most metropolitan cities. We were thinking of the following places:

1. Cafe Du Monde (for breakfast/mid-day snack)
2. Galatoires (for dinner on friday night)
3. Bayona (dinner on saturday night)
4. Commanders Palace (lunch/brunch on saturday)

The above restaurants are not set in stone, and we are open to any and all suggestions. Thank you all for any help and advice!

Regards,
