Oysters and Pearls: Luxury NOLAFeatured Guide
New Orleans is set amid a gulf, a river, and a lake. The city has had a sometimes contentious relationship with bodies of water, but it also relies on their generous bounty. Whether served fried on a po' boy or chilled on the half shell, the humble oyster is an unforgettable part of New Orleans cuisine. The creature's byproduct, the precious pearl, appears everywhere from well-appointed antique shops to Mardi Gras museums. One of the most inviting bodies of water may well be your hotel pool, set on a rooftop and ideal for a postprandial rest.
