bmar, If you remember it, you're not having a good time!

We may as well have a Fodor's GTG in NOLA since a few others may be in that neck of the woods then, too.

We'll buy you your first Purple Voodoo for your and then sing you Happy B'day at Lafitte's!

Bman, I forgot all about the "Sugah" Bowl! Yep. Top prices then. Ouch.
Drinking more lessens the pain...or so I've heard.

Both of you can drop me a line if you'd like so we can talk NOLA.

CC, What time will you be in front of the Kats Meow webcam and how many strings o' beads will you be wearing??
Fodor's mind's want to know!

I hope I'm sober enuff this trip to pose in front of the real webcam instead of looking like a total fool in front of the Security Cams!

Seafood in NOLA; lots of choices. My favorites include:

Fine Dining:
* GW Fins (lots of perfectly fresh fish and well prepared fish here).
* Brigtsen's (Best Crawfish Etoufee' in town, for my money. Actually, Chef Brigtsen make some of the best fish in LA, period!)
* Galatoire's (Try the Pompano and / or some crabmeat maison)
* Mr. B's Bistro (Try the BBQ Shrimp)
* Upperline: Not a fish restaurant but lots of great fish on the menu. Tell JoAnne (the owner) Mark from Massachusetts sent you! A great place! FYI: Joanne will tell you about other wonderful seafood places to go to in town.

* Red Fish Grill (Be sure to save some room for their incredible chocolate bread pudding... to die for).
* Marisol (Great local seafood with a Mediterranean twist).
* Bourbon House (pretty damned impressive place, in general. Try the stuffed crab).
* Jacques-Imo's Cafe (not a fish joint per se but lots of fresh fish here. Very popular joint).

Oyster Heavenby the way, I am not overly impressed with this year's oysters. The water was very warm. But the crawfish and finfish is fantastic this year.)
* Acme (Basic & World famous)
* Casamento's (" ")
* Felix's (" ")
* And of course, Uglesich's (go 11:00 AM or 3:00 PM and bring a big appetite and cash). I love this place! Quintessential New Orleans.

My Hidden Jewels not to be missed (not for seafood, but in general):
* Elizabeth's in Bywater for breakfast; believe me, it is worth the trip!
* Dick & Jenny's (Creole)
* Clancy's (Creole)
* Marigny Braserie
* Dante's Kitchen

Not as good as they should be:
* Court of the Two Sisters
* Arnauld's
* Antoine's
* Emeril's (If you want the sublime "Emeril Experience" go to Emeril's Delmonico or NOLA)
* Deanie's Seafood

Have a great trip.
