For the past several months I have been planning our trip to Convergence 2013 in New Orleans. And of course people have recommended some great restaurants “I can’t miss” when I get there.

My collegue Amber Bell here at CAL submitted her favorites:Café du Monde
Multiple Locations including the Riverwalk Marketplace and French Market.
No visit to New Orleans is complete without stopping at Café du Monde.  One of a kind chicory flavored coffee and AMAZING beignets.  Yelp Reviews.

  1. Lots of those restaurants are great! You must go to "Merchant" if you need a quick breakfast. They have fresh crepes to order and the best breakfast sandwiches. It's a very modern restaurant, but also very quick like Panera.
