3 Nights In New Orleans w/a big group of NY'ers

You'll have to split up and freelance or you'll all end up eating in banquet rooms. Don't miss galatoires, comanders palace and jacques-imo"s

Istanbul, what spices to bring

can't help with your choices,but make sure you visit the spice market at the foot of the galata bridge. Barrels and barrels of every spice know to man. they'll help you with your selection.

New Orleans Trip Report (LONG!!!) November 9-14, 2009

my wife says I have a drinking problem, but I,m an amateur next to you guys. We're coming into town on the 17th of dec. and along with all the usual spots(nola-galatoires-commanders palace) we're trying luke for the first time and the sazerac bar in the roosevelt hotel. Last june the roulette table at Harrahs bought us two meals.Hope our luck holds this time

T.O. visits N.O. redux.

I agree about Mothers. I was there before Katrina and it was interesting and good, Went there last time (June) and it was awful..Terrible service and terrible food. Do any of you natives know what happened to an institution??

Best restaurants open after 1000pm

I would imagine that Harrahs would have Late night Dining. That's where I would go about 3 minutes after I dropped my suitcase in the room. Watch that roulette table though.
