We are leaving on our first New Orleans trip one week from today! I have a massive list of restaurants I'm still sorting through, but one thing I haven't found is restaurant recommendations right around our hotel, the Hotel Monteleone. And by "immediate area" I mean within 2-3 blocks.
In particular, I'm asking because when we arrive on Thursday we have a tour planned, so we won't have much time to travel somewhere for lunch before it starts. Is there anything tasty right in that area? Even if it's not a quick lunch-type place I'd be interested in hearing about it.
We are definitely foodies and don't want to waste a meal on a place that's just so-so. Otherwise I'll just bring a snack from home and save my appetite for our dinner at Cochon Thursday night!
Thanks for any advice you can offer!
