To celebrate a big birthday in style, we had a wonderful stay at the Southern Comfort Bed and Breakfast. A big part of our plan was to go where the locals go and eat what they eat!
We took her early advice and called her favorite (and reliable) cab service before we arrived, and the cab was right there to bring us to the house minutes after we picked up our luggage at the airport.
Cindee sat us down at the start of our visit, and with a map on the table to organize our day and phone in hand to call for reservations as she guided us to a most memorable weekend.
She recommended the most delicious restaurants, and she gave us a red hot tip to book a table at a restaurant (Peche Seafood Grill) that just won a "James Beard" award, which she said "they just don't give those away". It felt great to be sitting down enjoying the amazing food while others were told there was an over an hour wait.
We ate in style for lunch at Commanders Palace with her tip to dress up and get the 25 cent martinis. She recommended the local Garden District Tour, which gave us the history of the beautiful area and wonderful appreciation of what is unique to New Orleans.
We wanted to hear some great local music, and her recommendations on how to get a seat for the show and what time to arrive made all the difference! She even knew the musicians!
This was a first time for us to stay in a bed and breakfast. The house is absolutely beautiful and the gourmet breakfasts are devine The other guests and light conversations were lovely. It was so nice to have access to bicycles, maps, umbrellas and chairs to make our outings a little more comfortable. The home is located in a neighborhood with walking distance to a nice gourmet food store, an extremely yummy seafood restaurant, and a local coffee shop and of course the St. Charles Street Trolley. Staying in a neighborhood is a wonderful way to experience New Orleans with the savvy of a local.
Cindee and her hospitality made the big birthday. What a nice place to relax after enjoying all the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of New Orleans. Highly recommended.
