Screen Shot 2016-05-30 at 1.05.18 AMFrom Jambalaya to Beignets, New Orleans is the place to be when hunger hits! There is a long history of food, influenced by the place’s people and culture; you’ll find French and Spanish flavors mingling with Cajun and Creole.

Brunch at LMNO Le Meridien

La Petite Grocery and Bar

In March of 2004, La Petite Grocery opened its doors in the same building built almost 100 years earlier to provide the neighborhood with exotic teas, locally roasted coffee and fresh produce. Lunching here is a real treat; fried green tomatoes and gulf shrimp & grits are two specialties.

Lüke by chef John Besh

This renowned restaurant is a homage to the grand old Franco-German brasseries that were once so popular in New Orleans. You haven’t experienced New Orleans’ culinary scene until you’ve tried Crawfish Bisque at Luke’s!

Cafe Adelaide & Swizzle Stick Bar

Head over to Cafe Adelaide & Swizzle Stick Bar to enjoy hand-crafted cocktails and fresh parmesan russet potato fries. This restobar is a “playful take on Creole cuisine with a side order of Big Easy bacchanalia” served by the Brennan clan’s new generation. Named after Adelaide aka “Queenie” who could have more fun in a single day than any other person her age. Café Adelaide & the Swizzle Stick Bar is a tribute to her unique take on living the good life.
