ERhine, have you been to Meril? We’ve had some great meals there the last two Mardi Gras.

I have not. Had a mixed report from a couple friends shortly after it opened. Usually end up opting for somewhere else instead of trying it.

I've only been once, and it was one of the best festivals I've ever been to, because it was all local acts and you just kind of stumble into greatness.  There were 20+ stages throughout the quarter when we went.  I saw some high school brass bands killing it.  Then walked on down the line and there was a violin/accordion duo with a flamenco dancer (?).  Then we found a bar by the zydeco stage and just hung out there.  

As to food, we cruised around the booths (a lot of the big restaurants have them).  Did breakfast at Brennan's one day.  Dinner at Felix's.

Is Felix's still any good?  Who has the best chargrilled oysters in town these days?

Not a fan of Felix.  Drago's has the best chargrilled oysters in my opinion.  Acme also has good ones if you are in the quarter and don't feel like walking to Drago's though it is always jam packed.

Agree on Drago's for chargrilled oysters, especially at Metarie location.  However, nowadays, I usually just get my fix at Casamento's, since they've had them for a while now too.

How was Compere?  Have heard good things, but not yet been there.

Also, I wish that drink (Old Fashioned?) was in front of me right now, even though it's 8:30 a.m.

Drink was called a Louisville slugger. Bourbon, apple brandy, chicory and smoked vanilla. It was great.

I don't go to Compère Lapin enough. The food has been spectacular every time. Just wish there was more bar seating. I usually just end up at Peche for a random weeknight meal while there on business, since more likely to get a seat at bar.

Thanks and will be trying it.

Love the whole fish at Peche and, you're right, the bar set-up there is good when solo.

I know it's a seafood restaurant, but I'm a huge fan of the hangar steak.

What’s the best boudin ball stop on the way from Austin?

Yes.

Seriously, there are lots. Hard to beat Best Stop in Scott. Rabideaux’s in Iowa, too, IIRC.

Dont stay there. Wife and I stayed there for a weekend 2 years ago. Decent price. Ok rooms (weird antique + modern set up and furnishings), and long strange hallways and stairs that get u from lobby to rooms. Also, it is by far the loudest hotel we’ve ever stayed at. Barely slept both nights, as you could hear simple conversations and cars from the street as if there wasnt a wall/window between the two

For Boudin Balls I love Billy's. It's the same exit in Scott as Best Stop and Don's. They also have a drive-thru.



10 minutes detour to Sausage Link in Sulphur is my jam.

the trick with boudin balls is just to realize it's going to take you an extra hour or hour and half to get to NO than the map says, because you should stop at several places on the way.

Well, my trip got all fucked up due to the weather earlier this week. I was supposed to be in NOLA by 2:30 Tuesday afternoon, but didn't get in until 1:30 Wednesday morning. Had planned to hit Finns for dinner Tuesday night, but had Papasito's in the DFW airport instead. FML. I've also been on a keto diet for about a month now, and I was trying to adhere to my diet as much as possible.

Wednesday late breakfast at Ruby Slipper. Eggs Cochon without the biscuits.

Lunch at Deanie's 2 lbs crawfish and a half pound of their cold boiled shrimp.

Dinner at Doris Metropolitan...Bone in Ribeye and the tomato celebration salad as my side. My buddy got the same steak and the truffle fries, which are fantastic...but alas no carbs for pescado. I did cheat and have a couple cocktails which were probably pretty sugary. They were excellent rum based drinks served in a coupe glass. Wish I could remember the name of them, because the cocktail menu on their site is not current.
