Local, maybe out of the way

Will be in NOLA this weekend. Thinking on Sunday finding a great local hole in the wall for dinner. Will have car, would drive outside of Nola. We were going to try Roberto's in Sunshine, LA, but closed on Sunday. Any ideas?

New Orleans...

The weather is fantastic lately - why spend time driving in the car? Buy a bunch of crawfish, sausage, boiled corn, garlic and potatoes from Big Fisherman on Magazine St, and then go picnic at Audubon Park on Magazine St. or on the Levee by the river. It's a totally unique thing to do, and grab your beer from Big Fisherman while you're there, too.

Mindendorff's go towards Baton Rouge on I-10 (about 10 -12 miles), take !-55 North about 10-15 mi.) take first exit after Manchac Bridge, you'll see the big restaruant on your right as you cross the bridge. Excellent sea food, probably some of the best around New Orleans. Be sure to try the "thin sliced catfish. It's under new ownership, but the owners retained all of the talent from the originals, they've been in business since the 1930s. Local food writer has them in the top 20 or 30 seafood places around the city. You will not be disappointed.

middendorf's was good and the dock is really pretty. i'd suggest making it a lunch thing though. drive down old route 51. it's nice.

i'd highly suggest doing frenchmen sunday. go to maurapas for dinner in the bywater with your car. try the goat tacos. sounds icky but it's delicious and i'm not a huge fan of goat at all. after dinner, try and make it to frenchmen. i know i've said it in a couple of other posts...hehehe...but mainline at blue nile was incredible and they're there every sunday. it's really not to be missed. there's the frechmen street art market in a tiny alley on frenchmen that's there til midnight sunday too. it was awesome!
