New Orleans Restaurant Choices
Going to NO for the first time this weekend! Have reserved the following (unfortunately, couldn't get in to Peristyle on such short notice). Am I making any mistakes?
Friday dinner - Bayona
Saturday dinner - Upperline
Sunday brunch - Mr. B's
Sunday dinner - Galatoire's

Thanks for any comments!

Only did Mr.B's for dinner. It was okay. Did Commander's Palace and Brennan's and both were good. However the star was a little hole in the wall that we heard a great deal about called Ugliches. Not in a good part of town so we took a cab. Its only open for lunch and it had a line by 11:30am. It was that rare kind of meal where you put the food in your mouth and moan its so good. I had fried green tomatoes with shrimp remolaude and it was incredible.

I liked Mr B's (especially their gumbo) and really really like NOLA'S (been twice).

Your choices are wonderful! The only thing I'd have done differently is sit downstairs at Galatoire's (where they don't take reservations)for a true New Orleans experience.

I had very pleasant meals at Bayona and Upperline. The service at both was extremely friendly. The pecan pie at Upperline was delicious -- highly recommended!

I will also admit to having beignets every day that I was there....still using the treadmill to burn them off. I am soooo glad they do not sell beignets anywhere near me!

Does anyone have an address for the great Ugliches in New Orleans?

Uglesich closed pre-Katrina. Not reopen to my knowledge although I've heard rumors that it may. It's on Baronne St
