I have a business meeting in New Orleans this Friday, staying at the W in the French Quarter.

Any recommendations I should go visit in my downtime?

THE FOOD. THE CULTURE. THE HISTORY. They are the three reasons why people love New Orleans. I am not New Orleans but it is one of my favorite American cities for those three reasons. So you should try to get a taste of all three on your visit. In order to do that you will need to: have at least full day open...with lots of money...and a hotel close to the action.

Here is how I would plan my one day trip to New Orleans:

AM- I would go to Cafe Du Monde and get some beignets and chickory coffee...check out Jackson Square immediately after...they are right next to one another.

Next I would go on a tour (its best to go to the cemetary tours early rather than later). The Voodoo tours, plantation tours, swamp tours are all excellent.

LUNCH- I prefer Antoines because it is reasonably priced, good food, and the building itself is awesome with lots of history. The wait staff will be happy to show you around the building...it is HUGE.

Next I would go to the WWII museum.

DINNER- Commanders Palace. In my opinion, may be one of the great restaurants not only in the country...but in the world. Cajun food defined. Bring the $$$.

Next I would walk the streets of the French Quarter and see Jackson Square at night time...pretty amazing. Then I would head to Bourbon Street to have some fun. Awesome party scene with a little bit of something for everyone. You can't so to New Orleans without sipping on a Hurricane, Sazerac or Mimosa...or the very least some Abita or Southern Comfort...while listening to some live Jazz.

Then hopefully you have a hotel on Bourbon street so you can stumble back to your room as the party continues in the background.

Yea I would have to agree with this, though I have never been to Commander's (despite living here for all my 21 years). Another thing I would add is to pay attention to the architecture. New Orleans' architecture is really unique.

I went on an cemetary tour and on the way to St. Louis Cemetary 1 our tour guide went over the architexture of all the buildings...their history...and of course the cemetary architexture. Pretty awesome. The tour guides are very good in New Orleans...very passionate about what they do and you can tell they love the city.

Commander's Palace is very over-rated. You want some good eats hit up Dookie's (my aunt Leah Chase made the place what it is today) or Mother's. Mother's is freaking awesome.

Little old Mrs Leah is your aunt?! She's awesome! Can I be in your family? Lol.

When you're in NOLA make sure you eat CREOLE food. Cajun is good too but new orleans isn't cajun central...that's Lafayette. New Orleans is the only place to get Creole food that is good.

If you looking for a quick eat close by your stay (W) hike across the street and head towards Harrah’s Casino and on the corner towards the river (onside the Hilton on the River). Hit up Drago’s Seafood and order their charbroiled oysters!!!

Heaven!!!

I also recommend their homemade cheese cake for desert. Any of their entrees would be great, their all good.

Other than that… Don’t get caught up in the names. What makes Nawlins great is all the mom and pop food spots all across the quarter. Drop in and try a few, it’s the places you least expect it that will have the most amazing food!!!

Enjoy

PS: You cannot leave New Orleans without stoping by Café Du Monde and devouring some of those world renowned Beignets!!!

Also, head down to a town called Jean Lafitte, hit up the Lafitte Swamp Tours and ask for a guide named Jason. You'll have a blast!
