You have to at least try the local fare like red beans and rice, gumbo, jambalaya and étouffée - they are as much a part of NOLA as the jazz. And no meal is complete without pralines and sea salt caramels (try Laura's Candies - the best!).

You definitely need to indulge in the tours offered. We took a Haunted History Tour after dark and got to learn about some the spookier places in the city. A cemetery tour is definitely on our to do list for next time.

If you are looking to avoid crowds, its tough. Find restaurants off the beaten track and at different times than are typical eating times. Avoid Bourbon street at night on the weekend, more of a crowd drinking scene anyway so if crowds aren't your thing, not really where you should be looking. The fact is that it is a popular place so it is tough to miss people, but strike out on your own and explore and there are some great things to see.

If you're going to get hand grenades, get the frozen ones so you pace yourself. They are pretty deadly to a lengthy night.

The people we met at the Hotel Monteleone were from out of state and ready to enjoy Mardi Gras. They were looking for a good time and good food. New Orleans provides both!

We used some Restaurant.com certificates to take us off the beaten path to places like Fiorella's, Bourbon Heat, Country Flame Grill. Decent food at decent prices, but expect to wait as its cooked to order. Good things take time.

With such a diverse culinary background New Orleans foster some of the best restaurants and cuisines comparable to anywhere in the world. I ate at several great places but Miyako's really stood out this time because we had a friends mom's birthday party there and she loved the showmanship of the Hibachi Chef Wan!!! Great job and experience!!!!

You never know who you will see doing what in N.O. Be careful of scammers, and watch your step, especially after dark. The lively music and freedom of expression in art/dance, etc. makes this a terrific place to peoplewatch.

What did you enjoy most about bar hopping in New Orleans?

Walter

The variety of the places. If you go to Bourbon expecting to find a joint to sit down in and enjoy a drink, you're in the wrong part of town. If that's what you were looking for, go around the corner and down a side street or two and you'll find that. On Bourbon, the party is always moving. So unless you are sitting down in a restaurant to eat, don't expect to find a bar with a lot of seating.

New Orleans is expensive for parking and it would be impossible to explore the narrow streets and enjoy the atmosphere in a car. The public transport is cheap and easily accessible so you are best to enjoy the sights and may be have a drink or 2 while you are there!
