I'll be in New Orleans for a wedding, and am a first time visitor. I've been wanting to go for years, but only have two free days before wedding events start. So assuming I only have two lunches and two dinners (plus possibly one more of each in various windows), what are the can't-miss places these days. Price is no object, so I'm not looking for bargains, just the quintessential NO experience at any price point. Please include classics (Commander's, etc.) as well as anything that's at the top of its game right now (Peche?). Also appreciated are additional experiences worth having (breakfasts, po boys, treats, etc.)
Also, I haven't seen as much talk about cocktails and booze on this thread, so please provide suggestions on the best places for cocktails, both classic and newfangled. Can't go to NO without getting my Sazerac/hurricane/other on! Thanks!
