      The Odgen is a fabulous art museum holding the largest collection of Southern Art in the world; there are permanent galleries but also a few rooms with temporary exhibits. The last time I was there, ... read more
      there was an exhibit on Hip Hop, which was just awesome--it was well thought out and really engaging. On Thursdays, the museum also hosts a music series from 6-8pm--a great way to browse the collections and enjoy the tunes. Located just a few minutes' walk from the French Quarter.

      I liked this hotel. You cannot beat the location it is right on Bourbon Street. The rooms are nice. A little frilly but that is the South and the decor matches the location. The property has many ... read more
      restaurants and bars and again the location is perfect whether you are at the Superdome or The Frence Quarter nothing is more than 10 minutes away from the hotel.

      Pro 2014
      Kat Von B (Travelinggreek) recommended Antoine's Restaurant

      The oldest restaurant in New Orleans is (for me) also the best! For a large restaurant (14 dining rooms) the service is surprisingly good. The food is everything you expect from New Orleans. The dish ... read more
      that Antoine's is best known for is the Oysters Rockefeller. The Trout Pontchartrain is mouth watering and the Crevettes Remoulade is outstanding! If you want to experience New Orleans than make sure you visit Antoine's.

      If you want to experience real food from New Orleans then go to Antoine's!

    • Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop941 Bourbon Street, New Orleans, LA
      Pro 2014
      Matthew Crompton recommended Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop

      Granted, Bourbon Street is a tourist trap. Still, it's a pleasantly atmospheric place, and one that's hard to beat for partying, and when you're out for a drink in the French Quarter, Lafitte's is ... read more
      pretty fantastic. The building that houses it has been around for more than 200 years, and the dark interior is a great place to lounge out with a stiff drink before proceeding on to some of the Quarter's less relaxed environs.

      And a decent spot for your first drink of the night. Good luck! =)

    • D Day Museum945 Magazine Street, New Orleans, LA
      Pro 2014
      Matthew Crompton recommended D Day Museum
      5
      An altogether compendious place covering the D-Day operations of WWII in exquisite detail, this museum does a fabulous job of bringing history to life. If that sounds boring to you, it shouldn't. The ... read more
      exhibits and analysis are top-notch, and so well presented you're likely to forget that you're actually learning something!

      If you've even the barest interest in WWII history, this museum is exceptional. A big surprise to me the first time I went.

      Matthew Crompton recommended Trolley Stop Cafe

      Something of a New Orleans institution, the Trolley Stop Cafe along the streetcar line on St. Charles has excellent diner-type food, and is a go-to place for tourists and locals alike looking for ... read more
      inexpensive eats on the way to or from the Quarter. I'm a particularly big fan of their breakfast menu.

      Riding the streetcar past the wedding-cake homes of the Garden District is a must, and I love breakfasts at this diner along the way.

    • Central Grocery923 Decatur St, New Orleans, LA 70116
      Pro 2014
      Matthew Crompton recommended Central Grocery
      5
      This NO institution is famous, and rightly so, for its monstrous, delicious, amazing mufalettas. Take a round loaf of excellent bread, slice the insides out, and fill it with fresh cold-cuts, cheeses, ... read more
      and -- best of all -- tangy olive salad. Buy a half-sandwich and eat it on the street outside for a great people-watching experience, or buy a whole and consign yourself to the tastiest food coma in the South.

      After a wander thru the French Markets, stop here for a mufaletta. Best. Sandwich. Ever. Eat while people-watching in Jackson Square.

      Matthew Crompton recommended Acme Oyster House

      Do you want to eat awesome NOLA-style seafood (peel-and-eat shrimp, po-boys, and tons and tons of fresh-shucked oysters) while drinking an Abita beer (I prefer Turbodog) and sweating deliciously in ... read more
      the heat? This Quarter institution may well be your place then. It's a place I always visit at least once when I'm in town.
