In New Orleans, dining is a way of life. At breakfast we talk about lunch, at lunch we ask what's for dinner and at dinner we are dreaming about Bananas Foster French Toast or Eggs Benedict the next day. Simply put, in New Orleans, "We Live to Eat."
During this weeklong celebration of New Orleans cuisine,participating restaurants in the New Orleans metro area will offer special prixfixe menus, a two-course lunch for $20 or less and a three-course dinner for$39 or less.
The We Live to Eat campaign was designed to raise awareness of New Orleans' unique culinary industry, which is at the heart of the city's identity. In New Orleans, we don't eat to live-we live to eat. Cuisine is a part of who we are. This movement's theme is therefore centered on supporting local restaurants and exploring the art and enjoyment of our dining scene, so central to life and culture in New Orleans.
