At Cochon Butcher have the Buckboard Bacon sandwich....delicious....also, love the Shrimp PoBoy at Parkway...We take the streetcar up and walk over...easy walk..then we have walked from there to City Park.

Dinner hopping

Would we be OK to hop around for our dinner....Herbsaint for the spaghetti with guanciale and then an appetizer or 2 at Emerils and then see how we feel? I know we can just stop in to Emerils and eat at the bar...can we do that at Herbsaint?

Recommendations for brunch/lunch/dinner places (researched!!)

Don't miss Cochon Butcher....alot of interesting lunch choices. Also, our favorite for a Po'Boy is Parkway but you will need to take the Canal Street streetcar up to it. We loved GWfinns

Beijing, Xian, Chengdu, Shanghai, Fuchsia Dunlop and Wild China

might be a bit boring but for some in our traveling group who are not quite as adventurous as us, it would be a good choice....what is the difference between upstairs and downstairs?

Emeril's New Orleans or NOLA

Ask for a table at GW Fins on the perimeter of the room...that is where we had a table and it was less noisy.

Emeril's New Orleans or NOLA

Though I enjoyed my meals in both locations, I have to say I would lean towards NOLA. I found Emerils to be "too busy"...too much commotion.....too many waiters, busboys, etc...I started getting dizzy if I watched what was going on around me. Loved NOLAs shrimp and grits, disappointed in Emerils Drum, but loved the pasta with smoked mushrooms and the coconut custard pie.

herbsaint or cochon

We had our Sunday lunch and another lunch at Cochon Butcher. We really enjoyed it. The buckboard bacon, cheese and collards sandwich was excellent as well as the duck pastrami sliders and the brussel sprouts. We were there last week and keep talking about when we can go back.

Looking for new places to eat

We had the crab beignets, which were not cooked properly...uncooked batter taste in the middle, sizzling oysters which didn't sizzle and were just ok....death by gumbo which was good and the redfish and pork belly which was ok....just not impressed. As we left, 2 other couples had just left ahead of us and asked us what we thought...we said it was "ok" and they said they agreed...much better places to spend less money.

Looking for new places to eat

We just got back and our least favorite meal was at R'evolution. Nothing stood out...and service wasn't the best, especially for the cost....We had great meals at GW Finns...lobster dumplings, soft shell crab and parmesean crusted drum was excellent. Cochon Butcher for bacon, collards melt and the duck pastrami sliders...so good! Cassamentos for delicious soft shell crab loaf. Sobou was good for a few lite bites...Parkway for the best roast beef and fried shrimp po'boys...Emerils was good....pastas were excellent and the banana cream pie. Go by Blue Dot Bakery for great donuts.

Please critique!!

I know...I was so disappointed..It was one place I was looking forward to for their lunch special.

Please critique!!

We had reservations for lunch at August, but they called to say they would be closed for some sort of renovation or something during our stay. So, even though we have been to Commanders and not to Herbsaint or Coquette....do you think we should do Commanders for lunch? Only thing...what is the dress code....husband will not have a jacket with him and we are not planning for any jacket restaurants....
