    Ajblakejr gets down there quite a bit. She could probably help. I haven`t been down in years but there was The Court of Two Sisters and the always popular Cafe du Monde in the Quarter.

    NOLA!!!!

    Where are they staying?
    How many days?
    Before March 8th or after?
    (Mardi Gras is March 8th.)
    How old are your parents?
    Are they very mobile or do they have limitations?

    The Court of Two Sisters is an outstanding choice in the French Quarter.
    Cach - you da man!!!

    Cafe Du Monde is a must. It is open 24 / 7 and you don't need to make plans to stop for Beignets at Cafe Du Monde, it just happens.

    Houston's on St Charles Street is outside the Garden District - and now a MUST on my list of places to eat in NO.

    I have never been to NO in the late winter / early spring; I travel in the fall or during the NFL season, usually Thanksgiving week.
    Thanksgiving week is one of the slowest times in NO.

    Just ask away and I will help.

    Thank you for the Kudos Cach!!!
