I am driving from NC to Austin and stopping by at New Orleans for a day.
I enjoyed the HBO show Treme set in New Orleans and wish to visit some of places that were featured in the show.
I found this article that lists http://marquee.blogs.cnn.com/2010/04/13/food-in-the-new-orleans-drama-treme/ --Angelo Brocato's Italian Ice Cream Parlor --Dorignac --Hubig's Pies --Old New Orleans Rum --Zapp's
But this is just few and I would like to know what are other famous spots.
One place I'm specially interested is this very old Italian (?) restaurant, maybe out side of New Orleans. I think it was Nelson Hidalgo (Jon Seda) who dined their some shady politician character in season 2.
Also, I am taking I-85 from NC to New Orleans, if I have any good recommendations between (it's 12 hours of driving afterall), please share some with me!
