Commander’s Palace is a must for Sunday brunch. I enjoyed The Red Fish Grill http://www.redfishgrill.com. Wish I had a beignet and a cup of Cafe du Monde coffee now!
On my last visit my friend recommended we go to Mardi Gras World -interesting to see where they make the floats, costumes, etc.
I always eat a late lunch buffet at Court of Two Sisters-I enjoy the atmosphere and its a great way to taste the many varities of Orleans food.
My favorite drink in NO is a Ramos Gin Fizz[:D]
