Even though this restaurant is only 13 years old, it’s history in the making. Chef and owner John ... read more
Harris’ dream restaurant, dubbed by Travel and Leisure magazine as “the sexiest dining room in New Orleans” features a menu that boasts such items as Bone Marrow Toast, Marinated Anchovies, and Passion Fruit Butter Alaskan Crab Cakes. They also host one of the city’s best pastry programs, as run by the award-winning Pastry Chef Beth Biundo, churning out desserts that other restaurants try (but always fail) to copy.
Go during lunch and get the stuffed lobster or grilled oysters, no exceptions. If you can, trek out ... read more
to Metairie, and dine at the original location, and you might get served by the owner. However, if you go here, you might have to put up eating with celebrities, though I know that's such a hardship.
Phenomenal restaurant in New Orleans, famous for a very good reason. One of the places with a dress ... read more
code, so if you don't feel like dressing up a lot, you should consider coming for lunch. The food is just as good, but you'll be more comfortable. And, you should really order the bread pudding (I don't even LIKE bread pudding but the one here is outstanding).
Loved the food and the atmosphere! Lots of menu options showcasing classic New Orleans seafood ... read more
dishes, with several dishes unique to Deanie's. My friend and I both thought the complimentary baked potato appetizer (instead of bread) was a nice touch, and it helped keep our hunger at bay while waiting for our really tasty Bucktown Boil Pizza. Liked the place so much that we went twice!
Oh, the brunch at Stanley! When a good friend left town, one more Stanley! brunch was a final order ... read more
of business. The more affordable counterpart to the jaw-dropping Stella!, this half of Tennessee Williams' screaming pair features personalized variations on the classic eggs Benedict, which are the tallest I've ever seen. It's bustling (with a long wait) on weekends but quiet during the week, and not at all a tourist trap despite its prime Jackson Square real estate.
Upscale, elegant, and worth every penny. Antoine's serves "old line" Creole cuisine in an atmosphere ... read more
which is both elegant, yet unpretentious. All dishes on the menu are served a'la carte, but the gumbo here is the best I sampled in New Orleans. If you're short on time, stop by the Hermes bar for a bite to eat to experience some of what Antoine's has to offer - you won't be sorry to drop a few extra dollars here.
Mmmmm. Everyone who visits New Orleans should try this, at least once. And since they have no ... read more
seating, it is the perfect stop before you head out in search of a picnic spot. There's plenty to be found!
This is the place to be! Gotta have the alligator cheesecake. Cool vibe and awesome food in a laid ... read more
...top-notch place to swill craft brews in New Orleans. Located in a very cool heritage building, ... read more
the food menu features ultra-fresh seafood and hearty pub-grub done up gourmand-style, though I've always come here mostly for the beers: an unfiltered weissbier goes down perfect after a hot day wandering the Quarter.
Another New Orleans classic standby. Home of the Hurricane cocktail, a Kool-Aid red concoction that ... read more
can knock you on your ass if your not careful. The fountain-graced courtyard is lovely and popular with the tourists, but I prefer the smaller inner bar area that feels like a classy pub. Drinking Kool Aid in an Irish pub? Heck, it's New Orleans. Do it.
On a three day trip to New Orleans, I ended up coming to Mother's twice. That's right. Twice. With ... read more
their amazing Po' Boys (enhanced with the burnt bits of roasted beef), "world's best baked ham," and a bowl of beans and rice, you may find yourself coming back for seconds too. Check out their website and familiarize yourself with what you want before coming. I've heard you'll be frowned upon if you don't order efficiently.
We had chargrilled oysters and the soft-shell crab po boy. The food was outstanding and the server ... read more
we had was so friendly!! I had never tried a raw oyster before so she brought me one (and didn't charge me for it) and then taught me how to eat it. It was a great experience and we will definitely be returning to Acme on our next visit to NOLA.
There are a million places to eat po'boys in New Orleans, but this might be the one I liked ... read more
best--big fat, fried oysters wedged inside pillowy bread, nice creaky, wood-floor kinda vibe, and outdoor seating.
Chef John Besh's version of a French Bistro with some German and Creole influences. They throw a ... read more
fine happy hour from 3-6 pm with half-priced alcoholic beverages and 50 cent oysters. The charcuterie is equally amazing and furthers the growing reputation that New Orleans definitely knows their charcuterie.
Very interesting and eclectic menu. More alcohol than food, and since I don't drink that much ... read more
probably won't go back for anything other than a unique local breakfast.
