I will be visiting New Orleans for four days (January 18 to January 21). I would like to have some recommendations from locals for restaurants (breakfast, lunch and dinners) and things to do (bars with good music..). Thank you very much!

1. Felix's in the Quarter is better than Deannie's to me. Not a deannie's fan.
2. Bluebird Cafe on Prytania is good for a cheap breakfast but they are cash only, serve til 2PM on the weekends
3. Slice on St. Charles is a good place to grab a slice of pizza and a beer
4. St. Joes Uptown on Magazine has the best mixologists for an affordable bar, if you are looking to drink but it's not walkable like the Marigny or Quarter might be.

Good Music:
I'd just go to Frenchman St. in the Marigny. Bourbon Street is not the place for good music all n all

LOL - New Orlenians are passionate about their food and know the places to go for whatever type of food there is

I still think Pat O's has one of the better piano bars I've been in anywhere down south or in Texas (don't know about up north or out west). Definitely one of my favorite places in the Quarter.

Pat O's is kinda touristy but I still somewhat enjoy it as well.

Okay, we will stay at Omni Royal. Apparently, most of your recommendations are within 3 miles of the hotel. Great! Thanks again.

One more thing. What is the guideline for tipping the taxi driver?

No real guideline that I know of, if he's nice and gets me where I need to be quickly, I give him all I can afford to spare...if he's a jerk who tries to rip you off, he gets nuttin.

Oh and visit Magazine St. and the Garden District as well. (and Frenchman St. in the Marigny)
