Cafe Barrio or..

Cafe barrio or FNB. Visiting and need to take 9 people for a thank you dinner. I wanted Mastos but it seems more appropriate to take this group to something more casual, but we are real foodies. Also, my husband tried to get into a pizza place last year he thinks was in/near Tempe. He said it gets filled at 5..anyone know about this and would recommend it? Thanks.

Please offer suggestions on my 5 day Easter weekend list with 23 yr. old boys...

Headed to visit NOLA 23 yr. old son and friends.
So far we're committed to:

Herbsaint
Commander's Palace Easter brunch
Red Gravy Sat. brunch
Cochon Butcher Fri. lunch

Of the following what should we add?

Galatoires
Brigstens
Emerils
Delmonico
La Boca

The boys of course love meat and potatoes, but they're also from Seattle and know good food.

I could also use a great pizza idea. They miss what we have up here, it's fantastic..lots of neopolitan style pizza places in Seattle.

Thanks in advance.

Finally headed to visit our son for 5 days

We'll be spending Easter weekend (Th-Mon) with our 23 yr. old son and his buddies. Here's where I plan to take them so far (they live on the edge and love good food when parents roll into town).

Herbsaint
Commander's Palace Easter brunch
Red Gravy Sat. brunch
Cochon Butcher lunch

Now I have to decide from the following:
Galatoire's (I don't think our son can make lunch there due to his work schedule). Should we drag them all there for dinner?
Emeril's
Delmonico
Brigsten's
LaBoca (our son has been and raved about it).

These are meat and potatoes guys from Seattle, so they like good food.

Thanks in advance.

The Infamous Line at Galatoires

Why are the lines different on Fridays? And how long can one anticipate being in line?

Kings Cake

What's it all about and where is the best? I want to tell our 23 yr. old living down there for a year. Thanks in advance.

Cheap, quality take-out

He's out of school but lives on Valence. I haven't been there yet. I think they're a few blocks from Magazine and I'm embarassed to say I don't know what their neighborhood is called. He has a car and works in Metairie so can get around.

Cheap, quality take-out

Our recent college grad living in NOLA always complains there aren't enough good "cheap, good take-outs" We're from Seattle where teriyaki abounds, great pizza by the slice, great local drive-in hamburger joint and good local Mexican food. Please advise on anything like those you can recommend. Always, thanks in advance!

Christmas gifts

Our recent college grad son is living in NOLA on a very tight budget. He needs to bring some Christmas presents home for the family. Any suggestions? I've never been but I thought of sending him to Sucre for a few gifts of macaroons. Please advise!

Best upscale grocery stores

Can someone please let me know what the best grocery stores are in NOLA? I want to send our starving son a gift card for his birthday. He's tired of shopping at Walmart. Thanks.

Lasagna for a crowd

Can anyone recommend a place that sells a GREAT lasagna (not Costco please) for a crowd? We love the Cafe Lago lasagna but it's $80.00 for one pan!

El Cholo

I haven't been since I had my first maragarita there as a college student in 1975. How is it these days?
