That could be quite a few places
Here's a list of some of my fav eateries:
Angeli, on Decatur and Gov. Nicholls
Winnie's- Magazine St. I forget the address but you can always look it up. It's a really cute sandwich shop/art gallery. They're only open for breakfast and lunch.
Basil Leaf- Thai food on Carrollton and Jeannette in the Riverbend area
Peristyle- rated best food in the city by Zagat. It's fairly hard to get a reservation. On the corner of Dumaine and N. Rampart in the quarter
Rene Bistrot- in the CBD. The food is divine
Cuvee- also in the CBD, on Magazine St. The food is uber expensive but orgasmic. I'd suggest sitting at the bar for appetizers and dessert. Did I mention how expensive it is?
Lee Circle Restaurant- in Lee Circle in the Le Cirque Hotel
Martinique Bistro- 5908 Magazine St., in between Nashville and State St. uptown. French food plus they have outdoor dining
Mango House- on Jeannette St. (next to Basil Leaf) It's carribean food. Nice quaint little place!
I don't really eat at *traditional* New Orleans places so I can't really help you on those.
