Green Olive Needs Your New Orleans Advice


We're feeling a bit overwhelmed with all of the restaurants to choose from for our upcoming trip to New Orleans (the Po-Boy Festival being one of the highlights), so we're turning to you to help narrow down our choices. It's been years since we've been, so give us your recommendations in the 'comments' section...no need to recommend Cochon...I imagine we'll be there at least once a day.

I just got back from my first ever trip to NOLA and LOVED it! I highly recommend Croissant d'Or on Ursuline (sp?) Street, a couple of blocks away from the river from the French Market - the last or next-to-last trolley stop on the riverfront line.

It is a bit off the beaten path, but that just makes it more worthwhile. We went for breakfast (I think they're only open mornings and for lunch, until 2 PM), and it was divine. Good mix of savory and sweet, accomodating anyone's breakfast preferences, and the obligatory delicious cafe au lait. The trolley driver gave us the recommendation after we told him we were headed to Cafe du Monde for breakfast; this was much better! Of course we did hit the Cafe later in our day - can't say no to those beignets!

Have fun!!

I was there for a week this summer for the Tales of the Cocktail.

Without rambling forever:

For a (new school) proper drink, visit Cure.

Great meals: (Cochon+Butcher, of course), Stella, and Lillette (stunning!)

You MUST have a Pimm's Cup at Napoleon House.

I seem to remember you know Susan Spicer, so Bayona is a must.

I can recommend Iris in the French Quarter, MiLa in the CBD and have heard good things lately about an uptown place called Bistro Daisy.

For casual food, Stanley (the laid back cousin of Stella), Mandina's and Parkway Bakery for the best po-boys in town.

I will now return to being insanely jealous.
