My sister is going to NO on 16 M.

she has been there before as has my father. Not Me. ( :sad: )

she will be staying at the Intercontinental on Charles st.

there is "Felix" and "Acme" that might be 'oyster houses"

there might be "Ralph" and "Kazoo" for gumbo.

I use the "..." as my sister well sometimes forgets some details.

Granted the N.O. is a sort of Food Capital

what might Seasoned Vets suggest: really good, not so touristy, and afordable?

So Many Thanks in advance.

maybe she can take some TransPort to a better Place?

she likes fish. she like a little atmosphere mostly What On The Plate

she is now living near Austin TX so that's what she can get locally.

serious thanks again!

I know there are a lot of NOLA threads. Have you searched for them, or looked in the Louisiana forum?

I liked Felix's jambalaya, but the locals have other preferences posted on the board.

We used to go to Coop's for jambalaya, but I don't have that much experience, so I can't say if there's better out there.
