New Orleans Restaurants

Restaurant Video Preview

Travel + Leisure Best Food City Award 2016Family recipes that date back 100 years, bread pudding beckoning from a bed of decadent caramel sauce, fresh Redfish topped with jumbo lump crabmeat - if one thing's for sure, it's that food in New Orleans- from gumbo to grits- is a serious affair. In New Orleans, food is an art form and chefs are rock stars. And with more than 1,400 restaurants to choose from, everyone is sure to find meals to make their taste buds sing.

New Orleans restaurateurs and renowned chefs are passionate about their craft, and it shows in their achievements that are rarely, if ever, replicated outside the Crescent City. New Orleans racked up an impressive six James Beard nominations this year, and after your visit you'll understand why.

The city's Creole, Cajun and French signature dishes are just the tip of the menu. While exploring New Orleans' culinary wonders, don't forget to explore the offerings of other cuisines, including Latin, Mediterranean, Asian and Italian fare which infuse traditional preparation with an amazing array of South Louisiana spices, produce and seafood.
