A March 2003 trip to New Orleans by pattibli

Quote: New Orleans is a great city to visit and we never seem to run out of things to do or new restaurants to try. We are definitely looking forward to the entertainment venue that is scheduled to be added at Harrah's.

Brennan's

Restaurant | "Brennan's Restaurant"

No trip to New Orleans is complete without coffee and beignets at Cafe du Monde. They have a location in the River Walk, but everyone should stop at least once at the location near the French Market.

The breakfast buffet is great. I have never eaten dinner there because of all the fantastic restaurants in New Orleans, but it also looks good. Harrah's is planning an entertainment venue on the second floor.
