Got back from NOLA about 2 weeks ago, and a couple of comments:

 

1) This is the first trip that my wife and I have taken, alone, in decades. Last time was to DC in the 1990s. We thought we'd splurge a bit, and so we stayed at the Ritz Carlton on Canal St. It was pricey, but oh, goodness, was it worth it. The attention to detail, the friendliness and service were without par. 

 

2) Cafe du Monde. Yes. VERY overrated. The begniets (did I spell that right?) were very good. The coffee was so so. The service was non-existent. I really don't understand the hype about the place. Loud, crowded, noisy. Meh.

 

3) I'm not a fan of seafood (don't ask - it has to do with my upbringing). So I was looking for someplace to eat where The Management could get lobster, and I could get something else. We ended up at the Star Steak and Lobster House on Decatur St.

The decor was, well, 19th century brothel. But the service was great, and the food was quite good. Couple of lobster tails, strip steak, a couple of cocktails and we got out for about $110 including tip. Nothing fancy, but good food and live music. Easy to get to off the streetcar.
