Trip Report Trip Report -- NOLA JazzFest 2011

Jump to last reply

We were at JazzFest for the first weekend this year and tried a couple of restaurants that were good. First, we had a wonderful dinner of oysters, etc. at Casamento's on Magazine Street. It's a classic place & I loved it.

Dinner at Cochon the next night and it exceeded our expectations. Oysters again, this time baked and they were perfect. We also had a fabulous crawfish casserole and terrific hush puppies. http://www.cochonrestaurant.com/

We had Italian at two places that were both good -- Vincents on St.Charles and Pascal's Manale on Napoleon Ave. We were staying near Pascal's and wanted to go out on Sunday night, around 8:30 pm with no reservations! If you are familiar with NOLA, you know that this can be tricky -- lots of places just aren't open on Sunday night. Pascal's was and we were able to walk right over & get it. We were pleasantly surprised with the quality and it's a very good value.

Can't wait until next year!
