Galatoire's Friday lunch

Do the lines start forming any earlier than usual on the Friday before Halloween?

I've heard that customers sometimes wear costumes on the Friday before Mardi Gras...is it also that way for Halloween?

Thank you for the help!

Commander's Palace lunch

Thank you for the tips! Sucre sounds like a great idea. I've seen their website and it does look like a great place for gifts.

New Orleans is our favorite place to visit and spend money! :) This will be my ninth visit and my husband's third and no matter how many times we come we never get to everything on our list. It's an amazing city.

It's so funny that you mentioned this because I've been thinking the same thing re: the clothes. I might be able to switch some things around...so far I've been planning this trip like a drill sergeant and every minute seems to be accounted for. I also, thought if I wore a sundress and heels for lunch I could just change shoes for the tour (I have a big purse and all kinds of things can fit in there!). :)

Commander's Palace lunch

I'll be making a return visit to New Orleans at the end of October and my goal is to visit some of the restaurants I've missed in the past. We're hoping to go to lunch at Commander's Palace at 11:30 on a Thursday, but we have a tour scheduled in the Garden District for 1:45...do you think this would be rushing it? Would 2 hours be enough time for lunch? I know Galatoire's is known for their long, leisurely lunches, but didn't know if Commander's had the same vibe. Also, should we be thinking about doing the jazz brunch instead of lunch? Is it a better experience?
Thank you for the help!

Looking for feedback on our NOLA dining plans - 5 days late September

If you're looking for a casual dinner spot on Saturday I suggest Napoleon House (get a muffuletta and Pimms cup...so good), Liuzza's or Casamento's. I'd try and fit Napoleon House in at some point even if you just go for a drink.
K-Paul's is closed Sunday and Monday so maybe you could move that to Tuesday night and do lunch at Bayona instead of dinner.
Between Clover Grill or Coop's Place for lunch I'd do Coop's and save Clover Grill for a late night snack just because the people watching seems to be better at night. :)
Before heading home you could get a muffuletta to go at Central Grocery to take on the flight.
Croissant D'or has good croissants and baked goods if you need a light snack at some point. Hope you have a wonderful time!
