Easy dinner first night in New Orleans

I agree with others on Cochon Butcher--great place. Though, Cafe Carmo might be a fun choice...and should be close since you're staying in the Convention Center area. Dubs itself a tropical cafe (mostly Brazilian influence, i think) has great fresh salads, sandwiches and speciality cocktails and live Brazilian music some nights.

Best Bread Pudding in the Quarter?

Yes! Went to Salon by Sucre a couple of weekends ago. One of the prettiest quarter settings I have been to. I ordered the bread pudding and it was delicious...I love it dense and theirs was super dense with espresso gelato and streusal. My other favorite bread pudding--palace cafe.

One night only in New Orleans in June--which restaurant?

Oh, and you don't stand in line at Cafe du Monde, unless you are getting them to-go in the back. There will be a line of people waiting to be seated, but it is a seat yourself venue. The people are standing in line because they see others standing in line. The workers don't bother to tell them, because they are way too busy. Just go in and find a seat.

Re: parking in CP by morning call-- there are tons of parking spaces in city park right next to morning call. Much easier to get to than CduM (though I like CduM's beignets a little bit better, but MC is great too) and a beautiful setting.

Hot dogs for cookout

I have since tried the hot dogs at Cleaver & Co and they were delicious...and huge! There were four to a package and were $10/lb. I paid $12 total. So they were more than 1/4 lb each. Too steep for a large group but I will be purchasing them for just us in the future. Thanks, culinas!

Hot dogs for cookout

I will check them out this week or next. Have some research to do! I have never been disappointed by Cochon Butcher.

Hot dogs for cookout

Thanks, Hungry Celeste!
I have yet to check whole foods but I just checked niman ranch's website and it looks to be about $4/frank, so I'm assuming it won't be any cheaper at rare cuts? I'm gonna check Cochon butcher, if they aren't any lower there I will be going the Sam's route!

Hot dogs for cookout

I am considering doing a cookout on the fly for my son's first bday in October. I'm thinking hotdogs (because the are easy to cook and no preparation besides condiments!) and a few homemade sides. So, I want more than just your basic oscar meyer...do you guys have any suggestions on where to buy gourmet or locally made weiners that won't break the bank? Grocery store, butcher, certain brands, anything!
Thanks!

Lamb

Oh that's great! I was wondering the price. The price at CCFM was $10/lb for leg.
Thanks!

Where can I get lamb? I know the crescent city farmer's market has it sometimes, but is there a grocery store that carries it on a regular basis?

Short Drive from New Orleans into Mississippi

One of the best restaurants in Mississippi (or perhaps THE best)...Walker's drive-in in Jackson. Derek Emerson, the chef there, is nominated for the James Beard Best Chef of the South this year.

Restaurant with best design?

A great place for a drink in the quarter with a very historic atmosphere (over 200 years old, former residence of new orlean's mayor who offered his home to Napoleon as refuge) is The Napoleon House, one of my favorite spots in the Quarter. Not where you want to eat your meal, but they are known for their warm muffuletta. To quote the website... "it's a place that suspends you in time, where you can hear Beethoven's Eroiqua, which he composed for Napoleon, and the music of other classical masters, while sipping a Pimm's Cup, and basking in an ambiance that could only be New Orleans."

New Orleanians going to be ON Oprah, need some food/drink recs!

Ok, we live in NOLA and we love our good food and libations. We will be there early next week. We will probably be staying close by the Harpo studios, so I guess let that guide you . I need a few recs from you all!
1. A good place for cocktails
2. A nice place for dinner, not too too fancy and expensive (but there IS a chance my friend and her dog, MoMo, will be winning a million dollars (FOR REAL-stay tuned to the show about the cutest dog competition) so who knows we might could afford a fancy dinner!
3. A good casual/inexpensive joint
Thanks so much in advance!

The "perfect" sampling of New Orleans restaurants

One good mid- afternoon or mid- morning snack is a crepe from crepes a la cart, though the setting is not very charming (next to the boot on broadway), but you can take it to audubon and stroll.

Fine dining close to the Ritz

Thank you all for the suggestions! I was able to give a somewhat "informed" opinion!

Fine dining close to the Ritz

Ok, our friends are coming to New Orleans in August (on a friday and saturday) and are staying at the Ritz...I think one night we will pick them up and take them to a neighborhood place like Dick and Jenny's but I need your favorite fine dining that is very walkable from the Ritz (they would probably prefer quarter)...any suggestions? I suppose a lunch suggestion would be good too. I'm new to the city, know a lot of great places to try from all of your suggestions, but still am not clear on locations...
Thanks!

gumbo ya-ya

interesting note..."ya ya" is also greek for "grandmother". Would be an appropriate word usage for gumbo ya ya if it wasn't......greek.
