BRUNCH - Green is beautiful at Satsuma, a fetching dining spot with locations on Maple Street Uptown and on Dauphine Street in the Bywater. Yard eggs scrambled with basil pesto and shaved Nueske's ham, free trade coffee and freshly made juices concocted in their industrial juicer behind the bar are just a few of the daily specials. Vegans are in heaven here, thanks to dishes like the tofu scramble and black bean burger with avocado mash. Eat indoors or out, and definitely plan on trying some of the green juice blends. Satsuma uptown is in walking distance to the universities and Audubon Park

MARIGNY DINNER - Polished elegance isn't a bellwether of the restaurants in the Marigny and Bywater neighborhoods in New Orleans.

Oysters are available raw or grilled with garlic butter or fried with a luscious white remoulade on the side. There is an interesting (and pricey) wine list as well as a fine array of craft cocktails.

LUNCH - Thai hot is only for the very brave at Suko Thai, a Thai eatery with an emphasis on fresh ingredients and dishes some of the best Thai cuisine in town in a setting that will soothe and delight. Everything is good, from the pad Thai to curries as fiery as you like and stir fries perfumed with Thai basil. Service is most accommodating and gluten free is the order of the day, since flour isn't a common ingredient in Thai cooking. Instead, rice noodles and steamed white and brown rice are options on the side. There's an inventive menu of tropical cocktails and imported beers
LUNCH - New Orleanians are not only loyal to this traditional bastion of Creole dining, they're loyal to their waiter, and if they're old enough, to their waiter's son. Generations come and go, but Galatoire's, with its classic seafood-centric menu focused on in-season fish and shellfish treated to artful preparations like trout meuniere, shrimp remoulade and oysters Rockefeller. Not only can your order well known local fish like drum, redfish and pompano, you can also get the sweet goodness of sheepshead and lemon fish if the waters are right. This French Creole palace is a definitive New Orleans experience, but remember, gents need a jacket after dark

LUNCH - Silk Road has come a long way since the days when it was a ramshackle neighborhood joint called Schiro's. Situated in the Marigny rectangle, the newly renovated restaurant, with its eye-popping art and handsome bar, is a hidden gem, polished beyond expectation. Chef Ganesh Ayyengar pays homage to his homeland with red curries from the South of India, along with spicy vindaloos popular in the west and tikka masala creamy with ghee. Heat can be adjusted to your taste, with a choice of chicken, or veg, all value priced. There's a super veg platter (tamarind chick peas, lentils, curried seasonal vegges) and also a slew of local faves like blackened drum and jambalaya.

SEAFOOD - The Mid-City Yacht Club is the ultimate neighborhood bar and come Fridays starting at 4pm during the season, around 320 mudbugs go into the boil. Order a heaping plate of crawfish for $6 with plenty of fixings on the side. There is a wide selection of beers on tap on in the can, ideal pairing with these spicy bites. If there's a game being played, it's on the flat screens and the crowd is always friendly. There's not yacht in sight, by the way, although for a brief time this place was waterfront property after Hurricane Katrina. Look up neighborhood bar in the dictionary, and chances are Mid-City Yacht Club will be there

DANCE - MONDAYS ARE BEST Before St. Claude Avenue was "cool," before there were restaurants opening every other week along this Bywater stretch, the Saturn was there.

Put on some lashes, tease the hair and done your best pucci knock off mini-dress, and you'll fit right in. The view from the upstairs balcony is killer.

WINE - This Garden District spot for sipping is relatively new to the scene and oh so worth discovering. The place is intimate, and ideal place to break from strolling and shipping for a glass or three. Wine flights and half-glasses give the curious drinker plenty of options for discovery. Small plates are fun to share. Try the avocado toast, charcuterie, roasted heirloom cauliflower and grilled Alaskan salmon, with a dark chocolate cake sure to tempt with your favorite red wine. When the weather is fine, sit in the romantic courtyard. Besides about 15 wines by the glass you can buy a bottle to open at the bar or bring home

WINE SHOP - This forward thinking little wine shop and lounge is a bright spot of vin culture along the emerging artsy St. Claude corridor that flanks the Marigny, Bywater and the Seventh Ward. Specializing in high quality, small production wines from around the world, Faubourg (say FO-burg) calls itself a "friendly and fearless" neighborhood wine shop and that's not an overstatement. You don't find the mass produced brands carried in supermarkets here, in fact you might not recognize many (or any) of the labels on the shelves. Just ask the informed and friendly staff to point you in the right direction and you'll be happy. Locally made bread along with cheese and pate is available

WINE - MUSIC - BEER - FOOD MONDAYS ARE BEST Bacchanal isn't like any other spot in town. Definitely off the beaten path, Bacchanal is a hybrid hang out that attracts artists, foodies and locals to chill, graze and listen to live music on the edge of the Bywater. The vibe is nonchalant whether you nibble cheese and charcuterie in the ramshackle courtyard or tuck into more substantial eats in the gastro pub upstairs. And of course, befitting its namesake, Bacchanal serves a decadent selection of wines by the glass or bottle. There's also a wine store up front if you need to stock up. On a sunny weekend day, there's no better hang in town.
