The wife and I are planning a Natchez Trace ride, and I'm thinking of including a one-day New Orleans visit. We would arrive May 11th, tour and leave for Natchez on the 12th, so no involved touristing, but I'd like to at least take her to one of the good restaurants for lunch.

Any locals or other regular visitors have suggestions? I'm thinking find a place to park the bike and walk maybe the French Quarter.

Also, suggestions for nearby (I don't mind staying on the other side of the lake if transit doesn't take too long) would be appreciated, too!

Plan your route carefully. We went the and my son suggested leaving the bike and he would drive us around in his truck. Doesn't take a lot of effort to push two people on a bike over at a stop sign.

On a day trip to New Orleans I'd park at Hara's casino on Canal St they have a covered parking garage (it's paid parking, forget how much). Cafe Du Monde and Jackson Square is a short walk up Decatur St. On the way to Cafe Du Monde on St Louis St about middle of the block from Decatur is Johnny's Po-Boys. If you have the time take a mule drawn carriage ride around the French Quarters.

Oh, forgot to mention, from Jackson Square I'd walk the river back to Hara's casino. Nice walk and lots to see.

Word of caution, there will be hustlers there trying to get you with questions and rhymes. Just say "Do not whine because we won't bet your line". They aren't dangerous so not to worry there they are just good at nailing you for $40-$60 bucks on a stupid "line" and a shine. Don't bite just keep on going.
