Good eats off the beaten path

Going back to New Orleans--first time with a car, though. Can anyone recommend any good eats that require a car to get to? It's ok if it's a little outside the city, too. We can always find the highest rated fine dining, but ideally we want to find the hidden local gem.

For po-boys, I like Domilise's and Parasol's Uptown, Crabby Jack's in Jefferson and Parkway Bakery and Tavern near City Park.

For seafood, Casamento's for oysters (Uptown) and Jaeger's or Deanie's (Bucktown branch) - especially for crawfish!

I love the Riverbend restaurants - Jacques-Imo's, Dante's Kitchen, Brigtsen's, etc. and Patois is one of my new favorites (Uptown).

Plus, Ralph's on the Park on City Park is one of the best fine dining restaurants around :)

We like Dick & Jenny's, Gautreau's, Upperline, Clancy's, Brigtsen's, Irene's Cuisine (Quarter) and just discovered Flaming Torch (French Bistro right off of Magazine). You'll find lots of locals in these restaurants outside of the Quarter. I also like nomenu.com recommended by previous poster for reviews and info.

I highly recommend Liuzza's by the Track and Willie Mae's Scotch House.
