About New Orleans, LA Restaurants


People the world over come to New Orleans to eat. Whether its gulf seafood, po'boys, gumbo, jambalaya, crawfish, shrimp etouffee or andouille sausage, New Orleans has something to please  every palate.

The restaurant scene in New Orleans is diverse and extends beyond the French Quarter into every neighborhood. There is an obvious lack of chain restaurants and a rare abundance of mom and pop, chef-owned eateries.  High profile chefs, including Emeril Lagasse, Susan Spicer, Donald Link and John Besh, oversee multiple restaurants throughout the city. 

The interesting blend of people that populated this great river city, a mix of African, French and Spanish, helped meld the food scene into what it is today. Some cities you go to with a full itinerary of activities planned out. When visiting New Orleans, your days revolve around meals at specific restaurants, often with your order ready before you even open the menu.
