About New Orleans, LA Restaurants


New Orleans food culture is internationally renowned with people traveling to the city specifically to eat. Whether its po-boys, gumbo, jambalaya, crawfish, shrimp, etouffee or andouille, New Orleans has something unique for every palette type. 

The restaurant scene in New Orleans is spread out and diverse. There is an obvious lack of chain restaurants and a rare abundance of mom and pop, homegrown type of joints. There are also celebrity chef establishments in every neighborhood, with superstars Emeril Legasse and John Besh having multiple restaurants they oversee throughout the city. 

The interesting blend of people that established this great river city (French, Creole, 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, you plan your days around meals at specific restaurants, knowing exactly what you will order before you step foot in the building.
