Lardon for a coq au vin?

Agreed, pancetta is perfectly good to be used as a substitute to lardons in French recipes. Just cut them into small cubes. Loblaws actually sells pre-cut pancetta that largely ressembles the lardons you would buy in France. Good luck with the recipe!

New Orleans - 3 nights: which 3 restaurants would you go with?

Hi Hazelhurst,

Thanks for taking budget and days into consideration! We actually are arriving on a Friday and just staying for an extended weekend. Lunch is definitely in play. We haven't booked our hotel reservations yet but we're likely going to stay around the FQ but we're willing to hop in a cab for a 15/20 min. ride if the restaurant is really worth it. In terms of budget, I don't know what's realistic for New Orleans. I'd say we'll go to at least one of the higher end restaurants...otherwise, I'm a huge fan of good hole-in-the-walls where the food is delish but still cheap...so I guess my budget would be $50 for dinner and one dinner for $150+ (for two). Or will I need to re-adjust my expectations? Thanks again for the responses so far!

New Orleans - 3 nights: which 3 restaurants would you go with?

Hello,

We're heading to New Orleans early December for 3 nights. Would be grateful for any suggestions for must-try restaurants! I've perused some sites and have found a list of restaurants that seem to be highly rated (Boucherie, Cafe Adelaide, Antoine's, etc.) but wanted to get some thoughts and insights from people who have been or live there. So if you could plan out 3 nights to show the 'best of' New Orleans, which places would you go to? Thanks in advance for the tips!
