    I don’t know if Mother’s is still there, but when I lived in NOLA in the 80’s, it was THE place for breakfast.

    I tried to get ones downtown and near the convention center (hence no Domilise’s or Frankie & Johnny’s)
    Cheap/Quick eats near the convention center – Mothers

    1. Best bet for a splurge: Mr. B’s, Irene’s, Bacco–all in the french quarter
    2. Cheap eats: Fiorella’s in the quarter, Nino’s on Carrolton, Five Happiness also on Carrolton, Zea on St. Charles
    3. Best traditional New Orleans fare: Mother’s. Also a relatively short walk from the convention center.
    4. Best nouvelle New Orleans fare: Palace Cafe–get the Shrimp Tchefuncte for an entree, start with the crawfish cheesecake, and finish up with either the white chocolate bread pudding or bananas foster.
    6. Quick eats near the Convention Center: Redeye for burgers
    7. Best po boy: Guy’s on Magazine
    8. You can’t leave New Orleans without eating here…the chargrilled oysters at Drago’s. Lucky for y’all, there’s now one in the Hilton Riverside, a quick walk up from the Convention Center. Also highly recommend Lola’s on Esplanade near the fairgrounds.
