And yes, some's better'n others! Gotta check 'em all out. Tabasco is mandatory.
My favorite place in New Orleans is Bon Ton Cafe. They do great crawfish, to be sure, but my favorite is their bread pudding. It comes essentially afloat in a lovely bourbon/butter sauce that is amazing! Been in the same location, just off the Quarter, since the 1930's.
I’d forgotten about Bon Ton. Another worthwhile eatery.

Because of the Covid disaster, we haven't gone anywhere for at least a year, and we're really ready for something whenever the time comes, hopefully in the near future. Most likely, we'd make the trip through Texas and end up in southern Louisiana visiting relatives. That will be a perfect occasion for us to run down to NO for some R&R and great food. Thanks for the suggestions!
