Overall the city is accessible with reasonably smooth sidewalks and curb cuts. There might be a few places where you might need to go an extra block or so and a few buildings with steps and no ramp but overall in the tourist areas (French Quarter, Convention Center area, Garden District, Central Business District) are accessible.
Enjoy your time there, it's perhaps the most unique city in the entire US with an atmosphere that is energized, laid back, and a bit eerie all at once.
There's a restaurant called Grande Isle a block or two from there, great food. Get the chicken, best I've ever had. I couldn't finish and my friend finished my plate and agreed. Reasonable prices and casual atmosphere.
