Everyone can yell at me now. I did not take photos. Sorry. I wasn't feeling touristy. I was just feelin' the place, which is so unlike me. I did analyze later. Still, no photos.
The first evening we had dinner at August, a restaurant of John Besh's. The place was adjacent to our hotel. Lovely dinner with great service. If money is no object, drop by 301 Tchoupitoulas Street. It's just off Poydras.
We didn't do much else but eat and talk that evening as we had traveled all day with the children to Jackson, MS, where the children remained with family. They didn't miss us one bit.
