Help for foodie basketball fan

My husband and I will be in NOLA this week for a few short days of all the great eating and drinking establishments that the city has to offer (or as many as we can squeeze into 2.5 days). My husband is a huge college basketball fan and his team is playing Thursday at noon. I'm wondering if there is somewhere we can go for a fantastic NOLA style lunch and perhaps sit at the bar to watch the game?
Thanks so much!

Pre-Dinner cocktail near Mizuna

Hi everyone,
I have 9:00 pm reservations at Mizuna on Saturday night (so excited) and need a suggestion on where to go for a great cocktail/martini before hand. Love the lancer lounge but not sure it's the right place for pre-mizuna... thoughts? Thanks!

longtime Boston hound moving to Denver...

Hey there,
I'm so glad to see so many posts about Denver on here-it seems like there's enough people excited about eating out in this area that we should have our own board! anyway, I am also a recent Boston transplant, and while I do miss A LOT of places back East I have discovered some great finds out here. I live in the highlands neighborhood and by far the best Mexican restaurant around is Taqueria Patzcuaro on 32nd - they have a Carnitas Michoacan that is truly to die for..other faves are Bistro Vendome on Larimer where they serve unbelievable pommes frites - sit at the bar and have the bartender Jameel recommend a great wine for you-you will not be disappointed! I've also had really fabulous meals at both Mizuna and Fruition, as well as at L'Atelier in Boulder. As for wine, I really like the Cost Plus market in cherry creek, they have a very reasonably priced, interesting selection of wines there-(although it's no Trader Joes!) and Superior Liquors in Superior also has a great selection... For wine deals in restaurants check out the coral room in the highlands on Monday nights, and Vita in the highlands as well on Tuesdays for 1/2 priced bottles of wine.......Have a great time exploring Denver's culinary options- and it's true the winters are better- though I don't know about Coors field being more fun than fenway??!!
