    Avoid the Quarter.

    Best po boy joint is on Tchoupitoulas ... wish I could remember the name now.

    My favourite is the Camelia Grill on St Charles and S Carrollton ... definitely local fare ... not cajun though ... more of a southern diner. about 8 years ago

    I'm a local, and Pelican Club in the quarter is the best! Very very NOLA...great art on the walls (including local artist Michealopolous, whose gallery is next door) & amazing food. Also Stella! for special a occassion or romantic date, August, Lilette, Sylvain, Cafe Degas, Clancy's, Brigsten's (very local & hard to get a rez; book in advance), Commander's Palace (esp. the Sunday jazz brunch), Cochon (Cajun food you'll only find in Louisiana), Cochon Butcher (phenomenal sandwiches), Felipe's fresh Mexican food (lunch), and I could go on for a hundred pages...:) over 7 years ago

    I've spent the latter half of my twenties trying to work my way through Tom Fitzmorris' "300 Most Essential Restaurants." He is always right. You can find more of his thoughts on his website. He always recommends GW Fins as the best seafood spot, and, I believe, he is a fan of Drago's and a lot of the restaurants on emandpenny's list. He is the real deal, and his various lists are a great place to start based on where you are staying or what type of cuisine you want. nomenu.com almost 7 years ago
