New Orleans Jazz Fest Weekend
There's a certain timelessness to New Orleans... making even the most ordinary meals extraordinary. The city's most famous sandwich, the Po Boy, has made a big come back since Katrina ravaged the Gulf state some years back. You'll find the history-drenched staple on nearly every menu from small take-out shacks to high end fine dining spots.
Louisiana cooking is considered world over as flavorful and soulful with Cajun and Creole influenced dishes like Jambalaya, Gumbo and Crawfish. New Orleans has some 900 restaurants and we're confident that it would be hard to find a bad one. In addition to fabulous food, the city over flows with beverages... the French Quarter allows visitors to stroll with a yard of beer or a frozen concoction of choice all the while looking for a fun place to match your mood.
Here's some of our favorite eateries and hangs (so far):
RED FISH GRILL
MAHONY'S PO BOY SHOP
OLD ABSINTHE HOUSE
