Restaurants in New Orleans, LA

America’s most extraordinary food city, New Orleans offers a vast range of dishes, some of which are fundamentally Creole (red beans & rice, muffulettas, beignets & cafe au lait, calas cakes, jambalaya), others more widely familiar but unique or at their best in the city (roast beef po boys, bread pudding with whiskey sauce, shave ice, pasta bordelaise, oysters in every way, shape, and form). One of the best things about eating around New Orleans is its wide range of dining styles, for here are virtual palaces of fine food serving customers in a manner all but disappeared everywhere else as well as plenty of holes-in-the-wall that look bad but taste good.
