The New Orleans Smoothie King Center is ground zero for concerts, shows, conventions and sporting events. It's a safe bet that if you're heading in that direction, you're going to need to graze. Situated on the edge of the Central Business District, the arena is surrounded by restaurants of all stripes, from casual sports bars to French bistros, all within walking distance.
What are you craving? From tacos to po'boys, sushi to burgers and fries, it's game on at these area eateries.
The wildly popular Pelicans are playing hoops at the arena these days. After a great win, or good game/close loss, head on over to Walk-On's. There, you can commiserate with fellow fans while catching up on the remaining sports action and highlights on the literally hundreds of screens that circle the bar.
If you happen to be staying at the Hyatt Regency or Loews New Orleans, satisfying your hunger is even easier at the excellent restaurants onsite.
