Travel to New Orleans in Fall

by Seattletany

We love seafood especially crawfish. Is it safe to travel to New Orleans this Fall 2010 after what happened with the gulf? We want to make sure when we go order crawfish at restaurant there we won't get sick.
Thanks!

From http://www.2theadvocate.com/features/food/94295529.html:


Crawfish safe from oil:

“Crawfish are raised in freshwater ponds and the Atchafalaya Basin,” Romaire said. “There are no crawfish ponds sufficiently close to the coast that can be impacted by the oil spill. Actually,” he added, “LSU AgCenter statistics from the past decade show a large percentage of the crawfish crop is harvested from ponds. More than 98 million pounds of crawfish came from domestic ponds in 2009,” Romaire said. “The wild crawfish crop accounted for nearly 15.5 million pounds.”

Only one way to find out.......

Re: Travel to New Orleans in Fall

....besides, no restaurant in New Orleans is going to serve you fish that might make you sick from exposure to oil, - if it could have been contaminated by oil, which the crawfish have not.

The last thing this amazing and beleguered city needs is a third reaqson to keep people away.

So go and have a ball in NOLA, and if you remember anything when you come back, tell us about it......d:o)

Here is something to get you in the mood, - and if you don't like what the doctor say, - Jackomo finne an dey.....d:o)

Arg - someday I'll be able to think of more than one thing at a time! :)

One of the joys of New Orleans is exploring the flavors of Cajun and Creole cooking. By all means, enjoy the seafood but maybe give muffuletta sandwiches, andouille sausage, dirty rice, red beans and rice, gumbos and jambalaya (made both with seafood and/or meats) and some of the other traditional dishes a shot?

Here are a couple short little background articles on New Orleans cuisine to make you good and hungry!

Travel Tips for New Orleans

What's Open in the French Quarter

by ErinInMD

If you haven't been to New Orleans, there is not one thing I can tell you to experience. Everyone gets something different out of this city.

Regardless, due to Katrina you will need to know what's open when you're down there. You can do it one of two ways:

1) Prior to leaving, you can go to QuarterCrawl.Com and look and see what's open.

2) You can ask your hotel for the lastest copy of "French Quarter Pocket Guide." It's a handy guide of what's open right now in the French Quarter and Marigny. It is published every two weeks on Friday. I found my copy at the front desk of my hotel. You can also find them at various bars, shops and restaurants.

The pocket guide has addresses, phone numbers and maps inside of it. It's a very handy thing to have while deciding where to go.

go with a group

by ChefSalt

I've never seen so many breasts in one evening
nor have I seen so many people in the streets in one evening
and never have I been molested by so many people trying to pick my pockets in one evening
Good food
Good Freinds
Good drinks
Good music
what else could one ask for I don't remember to much I was pretty waisted the whole time
I'll have to look back in my journals and get back to you on this one

Stop by the French Quarter,...

by Jane98

Stop by the French Quarter, take a walk in the streets and stop in one of those bars with live music. Day or night, your trip will be followed by Jazz. I remember that all family playing Jazz: from the little one who may have been 6 up to the grand-father. There were like 10 people.

Cruise down the mighty Mississippi

by vigi

I never saw a moving steamboat, the nly steamboat we had in Hong Kong are those "eatable" steamboat (hotpot) ^0^. So I decided to take a cruise down the mighty Mississippi! Savor the beauty and romance of New Orleans on a two-hour cruise from the heart of the French Quarter.

Pick restaurants carefully. ...

by llama765

Pick restaurants carefully. Lots of hype does not mean great food. For instance: Antoine's Restaurant has always been associated with New Orleans, but in deciding whether to go there, we walked by at prime time on a Saturday night and there were only 4 customers in the restaurant. I can guess what that means. Had a great walk on river walk along the mighty Mississippi. Started out early in the morning and finished at Jackson Square for Cafe au Lait and Beinget's (spelling ?). The Cafe au Lait is wonderfull, but the beignets were greasy, doughy and got powerdered sugar all over my black pants. Proceed with caution on the dough balls.
