Hi Vera,

Have a blast! I'm jealous. Take lots of pictures and bring everyone some beads.

A commentary on where and what you ate is in order.

A list of good options based on a visit ten years ago:

Bayona – top notch
The service at Emeril’s is a sight to see. The food is good
K-pauls for lunch
Mother’s for breakfast
Commander’s Palace for brunch
Is Kevin Graham still around? Windsor court.

Like I said ten years ago. The whole landscape has changed I’m sure.

Have fun. Write about what you ate.
Be gutsy. Believe in what you are doing. Find your bollocks. You must have confidence in your skills. Smile. Enjoy it.

I must not have seen this thread. I've been wondering where you are Vera. Hope you're having a grand time!

I agree with Commander's Palace for brunch. It is one of my favorite travel memories. The jazz quartet came up to me and took one look and sang, "when you're smiling" to me. I guess I was pretty happy. I don't know what is back up and going, but Napoleons for a mufalleta, and Acme (Ace? Something like that) for an oyster po'boy (I don't care for oysters myself, I had the jambalya). If these places are still there, up and running, go.
