That's really sad about the waffle place. Easily the best waffles I've ever had in the US.
+1, their pizza is pretty good too

And the entire French Quarter is very walkable and very hard to drive and park in.
We didn't have such a hard time parking and driving during the day, nighttime would be a different story.

Anyone have any experience with swamp tours? Is it worth going this time of year (end of March)? I'm considering a park ranger guided nature walk in Barataria Preserve instead of a boat tour. Would that be a worthwhile replacement?

Also, I see that there are something like 6 different plantations that offer their own tours. Any recommendations for the best of those?

Posted my TR here. Added it to the wiki of this thread and the master wiki thread.

In case anyone was wondering, we did the guided walk in Barataria instead of a boat based swamp tour, and we were very happy. We ended up picking Whitney and Destrehan for plantations. Whitney was very good, Destrehan only so-so.

So what's the story with Rabbi Greenberg Hechsher re Waffles on Maple?

Anyone know if the WWII museum lists any names of Holocaust victims or survivors. I am specifically looking for that in the NOLA area. TIA.

Shame about Waffles.
Was thinking of MSY for winter break, but food options seem pretty limited now.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Shame, true, but Casablanca in Meterie is quite good from what I hear, just not so close to the FQ.

I don't think they did, but I'm not 100% sure.
The museum is more of the US military point of the war vs a holocaust museum.
They did have some exhibits that were about the Holocaust but that is not the main focal point of this museum.
I only paid 15% by switching to dansdeals

I don't think so. It's not a holocaust museum, it's a WW2 museum from a military and US point of view. I thought it was fascinating and definitely recommend going.

I'd repeat what the others have said, but it's pointless. It's an excellent museum if you're interested in WWII, but it's definitely not a holocaust museum. They only have one room dedicated to that.

I'd go anyway, it's such a cool city to visit, especially if you're comfortable with the hechsher at Cafe Du Monde. TBH, waffles wasn't amazing but Casablanca was quite good.

I updated the wiki. Both Waffles locations are no longer under Louisina Kashrus Committe (Rabbi Nemes of Chabad of Metairie) - only Casablanca and Kosher Cajun are still LKC. Waffles on Maple and Cafe Dumonds (2 locations each) are under Rabbi Greenberg (of Beth Israel). There's also a restaurant called Rimon in the Tulane Hillel, under the Hillel Rabbi, Rabbi Schiller. I was told by someone at the OU yes to LKC, no to Rabbi Greenberg, and I haven't gotten a chance to ask about Rabbi Schiller (I'll try to report back).
