Spent six days there last week and survived unscathed. Enjoyed the food scene and the locals are wonderful. Each one nicer and more attentive than the last. Visited Commander's Palace (great turtle soup with sherry and nice bread pudding souffle--not more than nice), Brennan's (great room and very good food including the banana foster dessert prepared table side) , Angeline (outstanding veal breast dish), Sac a Lait (who might need to adjust the serving size but otherwise very enjoyable) and Willa Jean for lunches and baked goods. Nice meat loaf sandwich and corn bread with cane sugar syrup. Also Mother's for a big Ferdi po' boy and something called Brothers in Carondelet with very good plus fried chicken (to go since the chicken place is embedded in a convenience/liquor store). Cafe du Monde crazy as usual. Another beignet place in City Park, Morning Call is probably better although these doughnuts are more or less all the same. Don't get the chicory coffee thing. It just tastes like bad coffee. Also Cooter Brown's tavern in S. Carrollton uptown for some fried oyster shrimps and other bar stuff,
Fun place. Stayed away from Bourbon Street for the most part.
