I lived there for years. Firstly, avoid Bourbon Street like the plague.

The best stuff is where the locals go, not where the tourists go.

If you want music, go to Preservation Hall, or http://goneworleans.about.com/od/nightlife/tp/JazzinNo.htm

For food, go to Nola, Emeril's, or http://www.frommers.com/destinations/neworleans/20_inddin.html

or http://www.neworleansrestaurants.com/restaurants/

Again, avoid any place that are tourist driven, they are still better than any other place in the country, but not to die for great like others.

I forgot, another good restaurant in the Quarter is The Pelican Club, or http://www.restaurantaugust.com/, but the latter may be hard to get into since it is new and trendy
