Great steak at the Embers. My wife still talks about it and our first trip there together was over 20 years ago. If you go to Arnaud's (and I
recommend it) get the oyster stew, if they're serving it. Even if you think you don't like oysters. I promise.
Pat O'Brien's for sure. Yes, at least get a Hurricane. Hang out in the open air courtyard. There's a flaming fountain that's pretty awesome at
If you have a chance and don't mind waiting in line, Paul Prudhomme's restaurant is worth it. K-Paul's Louisiana Kitchen. When I was there last,
no reservations were accepted so a line was always evident. It was a small place, and they'd typically double you up with other people. It wasn't
a problem for us, we ended up sitting with a nice couple from Houston and had a great time. You might check, that may have changed. Get blackened
anything. It isn't overpoweringly spicy when done right, and Paul originated it.
You'll have a great time. New Orleans is definitely one of my all-time favorite cities, and this is a great time of year to go. I could spend a
fortune there, just hitting the great restaurants.
