Posted by: Princeton Group | Posted on: December 17th, 2012 | 0 Comments

On February 3, 2013, thousands of football fans will pack the Mercedes-Benz Superdome for Super Bowl XLVII, in New Orleans, LA. The city of New Orleans surely has a lot to offer in history, entertainment, night life, and dining. Below is a list of a few of our favorite local spots in and around the famous French Quarter.

Drago’s (Hilton Hotel)
*No reservations accepted

This family owned oyster bar opened their doors in 1969, and has since been a New Orleans favorite. They are famous for their oysters, but don’t stop there – Drago’s extensive menu of seafood, pastas, and classic New Orleans gumbo is equally delicious!

Must Try Dish: Famous Charbroiled Oysters


Café Amelie

Café Amelie is best known for their beautiful courtyard dining room nestled in the historic French Quarter. Guests of Café Amelie rave equally about the amazing menu (that changes seasonally), the beautiful courtyard, and the excellent service. We have no doubt that you will love Café Amelie too!

Must Try Dish: Shrimp and Grits



Mother’s Restaurant got its start in New Orleans back in 1938 serving up po’boys to local workers. After a few relocations and remodels, Mother’s is still a New Orleans staple for local cuisine.  Mother’s does not take reservations, but we think that’s a good sign that they are worth the wait – so stop in for lunch, southern style!

Must Try Dish: Ferdi Special (Mother’s best baked ham, roast beef, debris and gravy!)


Mr. B’s Bistro (Local Creole Cuisine)    

One of the famed New Orleans restaurateurs, the Brennan’s restaurants, Mr. B’s is a great choice for a local fine dining experience. Open for lunch, dinner, and Sunday Jazz Brunch.
