Herbsaint, Clancy's, or Upperline? Oyster Po Boys. Lafayette suggestions.

Not a fan of Herbsait at all which is wierd because I LOVE Bayona which is a sister restaurant but with a much better Owner/Chef but if you are looking for a more essential Louisiana food, I would recommend you check out the following:
Jacques Imos
Brightsen's
Palace Cafe
Maurepas Foods
Casamento's
Vacherie.

for something less causal
R'evolution, just opened and I have heard great things about it. Chef John Folse is involved so its sure to be good

Christmas Eve????

Bayona is a great place, one of my personal top five w/ August, Commanders Palace, MiLa, & Kieth Youngs Steakhouse. I have no idea if any of them are going to be open. I know Tom Fitzmorris posts a list every year of places that are open on Christmas eve, you should check out his website nomenu.com

Quail, Turtle, and Quaility Rib Roast

Planning an amazing Holiday dinner party for the weekend and I think I want to try my hand at some recipies from John Besh's cookbook.
Where are the best places in NOLA, Jefferson, St. Tammany, to buy good cuts of beef (Rib Roast), and where can I find Quail and turtle meat?
Thanks in advance!

Best Sushi in New Orleans?

If you are not opposed to venturing into Chalmette, you should definitatly give UMI sushi a try. The place looks like a dive on the outside but is actually pretty nice inside (for da parish) They have some of the most creative specialty rolls you will find anywhere, all at a good value and with really good service.
If you give it a try you will be going back, I promise.

Chiba is my favorite place in NOLA because it is one of the few sushi places I have ever been to where the atmosphere is as great as the food.
