I've decided to take a vacation to New Orleans to eat good food in October. Where should I go? I am considering a night tour that includes a 3 course meal at Tujagues Restaurant. What do you think? Any must see sites? Thanks.

I would forget about paying for a formal tour and just do your research on restaurants. Tujaques is okay, at best, but I wouldn't make it a must do. There are numerous better restaurants here.

What type of food are you looking for? What is your price range? Casual or upscale? Do you care if the place is touristy or would you rather be someplace more local? Give us specifics and we can help!

I want the best New Orleans has to offer in food. I have chosen New Orleans as the "Eat" part of my journey. I can't really be specific because I do not know much about New Orleans. I know the food is hearty and good. I like jambalaya; I usually eat rice, chicken and sea food but I am willing to try something new. I would appreciate any help. Thanks.

I do not want to spend more than $20 for breakfast or lunch. I am willing to go up to $30 for dinner. Does anyone recommend Mother's?

Definately. It's the one touristy place that is actually pretty good. Great breakfast and lunch spot. Good breakfast and good poboys. Don't let the line scare you away, it moves fast.

At $30 limit for dinner, you are going to miss all the truly great places. But there are still plenty of other good places to go!

You can eat dinner at Mandina's in that price range. Heck, my husband and I eat dinner there for around $40. (I swear I don't work for them, y'all! It's just such great food!)

I, too, have heard a lot of good about Mandina's, even though I haven't tried it yet. I plan to when I go there next year.

I also LOVE Adolfo's on Frenchman Street. Very tasty dinners (Italian seafood) at decent prices.

In either the 1st or 2nd weekend of October is the Crescent City Blues Festival at one of the parks there, and it's free. Seems to always have good bands, and I think that would be a great way to experience great music there.

There's a host of things to enjoy there, based on what interests you:

French Quarter (including Cafe DuMonde, French Market, St Louis Cathedral, and Jackson Park).
St. Charles Streetcar through the Garden District (you can get out and walk around at intervals).
St. Louis #1 Cemetery (take a camera for great pictures).
Mid-City Rock 'n' Bowl at night (check the schedule ~ fantastic, fun place).
Riverboat ride.
Frenchman Street at night for nightclubs.

Every time I go back home to New Orleans to visit, I gain weight from all of the good food. When I move there for good, I'm going to have to adopt a more consistent workout routine. :P
