I am heading to New Orleans from New Brunswick Canada next week to watch the Saints take on the Patriots. I am staying at the Intercontinental hotel on St. Charles Ave, and I am wondering where are some good restautrants to eat? I am not a fussy eater and I really want to try some of this famous New Orleans food. I heard that Po-boys and turtle soup are popular items, so where are some good places to go within a reasonable distance to my hotel.
Also I do want to check out Bourbon st. I heard Pat O'Brians, and Tropical Isle are good places to be, but where else would you recommed going?
And other than partying and eating, what else is there to do?
