I will be staying at the Courtyard on St. Charles and was looking for any restaurant recommendations.  I know there are many to choose from and am looking for those within walking distance.

    Great location, great property! You are in the middle of restaurant heaven. Bacco, August, Bayona are upscale and worth it. Herb Saint, Tommy's Cuisine are excellent as well. My Sunday morning favorite is Lucy's across from the Renaissance on Tchoupitoulas. Have a great time

    Hi Stefanie.  I see that you have received great restaurant suggestions.  New Orleans is one of my favorite cities.  I am a fan of Besh Steakhouse inside Harrah's.  Great menu, excellent service, and always a hit when I take friends or clients.  I am also a fan of JW Finns.  Excellent menu and staff and right near the excitement of Bourbon Street.  Enjoy!

    If you are in the mood for an awesome steak, Shula's is just down the street in the JW.  I would also recommend walking into the quarter and visiting The Court of Two Sisters.  This is a great place for a Jazz Brunch and you will walk away very full of NO cuisine.  The Pelican Club is a great hide away as well, they ar elocated directy across the street from the Hotel Montelone.

    Bon Appetit!!!

    Cochon is really an excellent restaurant, I highly recommend it.  Also great is Iris, off Carrollton Avenue.  Certainly worth the trolley ride or short drive out there.  A very small restaurant with an impressive menu and custom martinis.

    I just returned from New Orleans (stayed at JW Marriott). If this is your first trip there, I would go with the old stalwarts (which I did) and visit Arnaud's and Commander's Palace. Arnaud's is a very short walk from the Courtyard (which looks very charming) and Commander's is a 15 minute St Charles Ave streetcar ride (which stops directly in front of the Courtyard). I visited both restaurants and the meals were excellent. You may also want to visit the Gumbo Shop, which is also nearby in the Quarter.

    Mothers is a must that is recommended by some professional collegues I know there.  I tried it myself and it is pretty good.  It's good blue collar soul food, Nawlins' style.

    Maspero restaurant is very good.  Very popular at prime times though so you may consider going mid-late afternoon rather than lunch and dinner hour.  On Decatur in Quarter.  Of course Cafe Du Monde is a must across from Jackson Square.  The Cafe au Lait and beignets while not a meal, will fill you up. Felix's oyster bar doesn't look like much at all but has great oyster stew/soup, po boy, and on the shell.  On Iberville, a bit more of a walk but very, very, casual.  For upscale you can always visit Brennan's (famous for eggs benedict breakfast), Court of Two Sisters (you can just go for dessert and coffee if you want), Antoine's (historical but pricery), and Emeril's.  Enjoy.

    Catch a cab and go to the Rio Mar across from the courtyard a block from the convention center.  Well worth the cab fare-it features mediterrain seafood and it is excellent.

    GW Fins ... don't listen to me, just google and I dare you to find a bad review! Cilean Sea bass to die for. Someone mentioned Shula's ... if you want to buy the MOST overpriced hunk of beef you've ever purchased ... by all means :)

    The Red Fish Grill a Brennan family Restaraunt at Canal and Bourbon is great and not too expensive. Giacomo's looks like a hole in the wall but the food is great, and sometimes the line to get in is too! It is off Magazine St. about 10 min from downtown.

    I forgot to mention Mother's for breakfast. Artery clogging Southern style. Cooks and servers are in a hurry, not for the atmoshphere but for the food. It is a great place.
