First time back in 25 years - French Quarter

I a going back to New Orleans for the first time in 25 years , staying in the quarter. I won't have a car and we plan on walking around eating all I can. I am there to eat to eat as much local food as possible over 4 days. What places do you recommend are a must for local great food? It doesnt need to be fancy I must have crawfish, oysters, boudin, redfish, etc.

1st tiime over 25 years? Wow! It's going to be like the 1st time. One of my favorite restaurant is the Chartres House Cafe. I go there for my 1st meal every trip, having at least the duck quesadillas appetizer if nothing more. The last time I was there, they had a new appetizer, a garlic French bread with cheese, crawfish tails, and spices, yuuuuumy.

As for boudin, Stanley's has an eggs benedict breakfast that includes boudin that is fabulous.

For casual, there are now several places in the French Market. Look at the thread about FM pics below

How does this sound: "Olivier’s is an authentic French Quarter Creole restaurant cooking dishes handed down through five generations.

We're family-owned and operated, moderately priced, and quintessentially New Orleans, right down to our renowned Southern hospitality."

Moderate prices. Great local-based menu. Restaurant tradition since 1979. Olivier's on Decatur Street.
