OK, all you travelers, where would you stay if hotels are heavily booked in New Orleans and you want to be within walking distance of the convention center? Your favorite places for dining, music, fun? I respect the expert opinions on this board and appreciate any suggestions.
I think Copeland's was founded by Al Copeland (of NO) but he also founded Popeye's Chicken.
Seems like they are not related. There is a Copeland' here in Nashville, pretty good Cajun fare.
Brennans - is that the Copeland family? I think so, but I could be confused. I met a 28ish lady at a wedding in Abbeville, La. who was the daughter or granddaughter of the founding Brennan family. She was an exotic beauty, absolutely exquisite. I cannot remember her name, but her image lingers in my mind.
It's all caming back, yes Brennan's burned down in April of 1974 I remember the court yard vividly, I made a reservation for the next day because the place was full, and the next day the kitchen set the all place on fire.
My luck! Kiki
Brennan's is the best for brunch. The Bloody Mary's are made with gin and a lemon rather than lime is used.
There was a time Galatoir's discouraged tourists. I would wear a seersucker jacket and tie, always got in.
We would go down for the Vandy-Tulane game every other year.
Brennan's is famous for breakfast. Eggs Benedict(sp?) is specialty. Went there with wife in 1996, cost $70.
I really didn't enjoy the Cajun and Creole fare I had at the various restaurants in the French Quarter we ate at during our visit, but I guess that's just my taste. Best meal IMO was T-Bone steak at a nondescript eatery last night of trip.
Enjoy your visit. Snug
How about Lafayette, I met a sexy Cajun girl from there years ago named Honey and she sure was, Lib would have gone wild and she even served a nice piece of tail.....alligator that is!Let The Good Times Roll!
