  • Cafe du Monde

    4 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    Everybody wants to try a beignet here and rightly so. Café Du Monde is large and open 24 hrs so there really is no excuse. But be warned - three beignets are enough for two - we bought three more to take home and eat later. Still good, but not the same. In April 2013, two café au laits and six beignets cost under $12. Great place to people watch...

  • Central Grocery

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    Another sandwich that is typical of New Orleans is the muffuletta, a delicious combination of cold cuts, cheese and - the key ingredient - Sicilian olive salad served on a soft, round bread. The sandwich was created at the Central Grocery, which has been around since 1906, by its original owner Salvatore Lupo. Although most restaurants around town...

  • Acme Oyster House

    4 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    One of the handful of places that Man vs. Food has visited - while I'm not interested in oysters, the rest of the menu looked pretty promising. The start was a little rocky though. You need to wait outside to be seated, which wouldn't be bad except for the horrible stench in the alley :( Luckily, we were seated fairly quickly. The table areas are a...

  • Court of Two Sisters

    4 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    We were fortunate to sit outside in the courtyard for the Saturday Jazz Brunch. The Jazz band played throughout the restaurant and it was delightful when they played in the courtyard. The service by Troy was very attentive and we never lacked for coffee or other drinks. We sat at a table for six, and all had the buffet lunch. The variety of food...

    Famous New Orleans hangout across from Lafayette Cemetery--we walked by around 4 in the afternoon while visiting the cemetery across the street, listening to the band rehearsing for the coming night's entertainment....great local experience...the menu is the best of NO seafood and always the freshest...old style service and first class food make...

  • Brennan's

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    Open for breakfast and dinner, we had brunch here and HIGHLY recommend it. If you haven't booked, no problem if you're early - you can walk in. We had brunch at noon on a Saturday in April and were seated within 5 minutes. $36 per person for Brunch. Bananas Foster was started here - and it topped off a superb meal. You cannot come here and leave...

  • Mother's

    4 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    This is an unusual deli kinda joint. You enter, get in line, and grab a menu and wind your way to the cook area to order. You then pay and find a table. A waitperson will find you and bring your meal to you. The breakfast is supposed to be outstanding. We however enjoyed our lunch. We tasted the gumbo, a house special po'boy with debris (the yummy...

  • Gumbo Shop

    4 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    We struggled mightily on where to go our final night, and finally went to the Concierge to assist us. She suggested the Gumbo Shop, and after much deliberation, our 9-person group headed over there. It looked like we might get off to a rough start when we told the hostess 9 - but they scrambled and set up a table to accommodate us. There are two...

  • Johnny's Po-Boys

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    Apparently the oldest family owned PoBoys restaurant in the world, expect to stand in line for your sandwich. In April 2013, we did - about 20 minutes. But worth it. $9 is typical for a sandwich - think what you would like on it and they probably have it. Downstairs is often crowded - go upstairs where they also serve great ice cream and you...

  • Antoine's

    3 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    My wife and I had 3 days to spend in New Orleans and wanted to eat at 3 of its more famous restaurants; Antoine's, Commander's Palace, and K-Paul's Louisiana Kitchen. Of the 3, Antoine's turned out to be the biggest disappointment because the food certainly did not live up to our expectations. My wife had a green tomato appetizer which turned out...

  • Jacques-Imo's Cafe

    4 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    Jacques-Imo's Cafe is more than just a restaurant; it's a total experience. The name of the place is a pun on the Creole phrase "Jockamo fee na nay" (remember the song "Iko Iko"?) and the name of the owner, Jacques Leonardi. Do not come to Jacques-Imo's if you are in a hurry or want to have a quiet dinner. It's a popular, noisy, crowded place...

  • Deanie's Seafood

    4 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    You cannot make reservations so be prepared to wait. We visited on a Saturday evening in April about 7:45pm and had an hour wait. There is a bar and room to stand and drink and talk so the wait is quite manageable. Another VT member recommended the Barbeque Shrimp starter - thank you !! We totally concur - these large shrimp are beautifully...

  • Muriel's

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    muriel's is a very good contemporary creole restaurant located in the french quarter. muriel's has a refined 19 th century decor and is a relaxing place to have lunch or dinner. in my opinion one of the better restaurants in the french quarter.

  • Napoleon House Bar & Cafe

    4 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    Napoleon House, housed in a historic building in the French Quarter, has been owned and operated by the Impastato family since 1914. If you peek in the door, all you can see is the bar, but rest assured, beyond that is a lovely courtyard that's perfect for dining. The food is a cross between Italian deli and New Orleans cuisine, and they are...

  • Arnaud's

    5 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    If there is a better breakfast, you'll have to wait for Heaven. The service, ambience, wait staff, and food are nonpareil. I've eaten breakfast here twice, and the quality was superb each time. The tourists unwittingly flock to Brennan's, but this is the place to go. Perhaps I shouldn't have told. The turtle soup is outstanding. The serving...

  • Coop's Place

    4 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    Coop’s Place is a small, down to earth bar with friendliest staff we met in New Orleans. A lot of people (the locals) like to stand at the bar and have their dinner there but we preferred a table next to the wall (like most of the visitors), the wooden tables give a nice touch to this casual and definitely not fancy place, a cute place with a laid...

  • Lucky Dog

    4 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    I usually try to keep a balanced diet, even when I'm traveling. But after a night out on Bourbon Street, most resolutions tend to go out the window, and that's how we ended up grabbing a "lucky dog". You'll find the hot dog-shaped carts at different street corners in the French Quarter. They've been around since 1948, and very few visitors make it...

  • Crescent City Brewhouse

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    We arrived in New Orleans on a Monday and things were reasonably tamed at first - or at least, as tamed as Bourbon Street will ever be! - but by Thursday night you could definitely tell that weekend was just around the corner and things were coming in full swing. We had to walk for quite some time to find a place to eat where we wouldn't have to...

  • Camillia Grill

    4 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    I was told that the chili omelet was the reason to go here, so that's what I ordered---a HUGE 3 egg omelet deliciously overflowing with spicy chili! MMMMM! The chicory is a plus as well, My mama used to make Luzianne Chicory coffee when I was growing up, and learned to love it then. This place is right at a big turn in the streetcar, which is a fun...

  • Cafe Beignet

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    I just wandered into the Café Beignet by happen chance. I was just looking for a place to eat that was not too expensive. Well I got what I paid for because the food here was not good. Nor was the jazz band that played lame old jazz and blues songs. The Café Beignet I visited was very busy, largely because of the two conventions in town and its...

  • Red Fish Grill

    4 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    My husband and I dined at Red Fish Grill two years back and we both thought the dishes we got were bland. Not worth the money at all. I remember one of us got the chicken dish which was tasteless and I think we also got a seafood entree. Nothing memorable and I'm not very picky.

  • Emeril's

    4 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    The beloved daughter of my friend was graduating from Tulane Law, and her "ungodly parents" had come to New Orleans to witness the momentous occasion. As a fitting celebration for the achievement, they took us all to dinner at Emeril's. I have to admit that it was a fabulous evening. The restaurant itself didn't knock my socks off with its decor,...

  • K-Paul's Louisiana Kitchen

    4 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    I first visited K-Paul's in the 80's before Food TV made Chef Paul Prudomme a superstar. The wait was long even though we got in line an hour before it opened, and we had to dash for a two-top table because we didn't want to share a 4-top with strangers. The place was a tiny dump and the lousy house wine was served in a mason jar, but the moment...

  • Port of Call

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    New Orleans Restaurants

    Port of Call looks like a dark little dive bar, but I had heard that it serves the best hamburgers in New Orleans. After eating lunch there, I would add, "...and possibly in the whole country." Omigawd, that burger was good! Normally, I can finish only about half a burger, but at Port of Call I ordered a half-pounder and INHALED that sucker. Even...

  • Alex Patout's - CLOSED

    New Orleans Restaurants

    The first thing we needed to do when we got to New Orleans eat - we were starving!! We checked in at the hotel and then just went walking. We knew we would find something in a city like this. On Bourbon Street, the first place we saw was people eating outside on a balcony - it looked perfect and it was! Patouts had a live band playing inside by...

    New Orleans Restaurants

    We love Margaritaville! A fun time, good food, and stellar Margaritas! They offer a generous military discount, so if you are active service or retired, be sure to ask. We loved eating out on the balcony - so very New Orleans - and it was a beautiful day. I had the shrimp po-boy with fries (which was big enough to share). My sister had the roast...

    While in New Orleans we celebrated our anniversary at Emerils Delmonico. We called a few hours before and just tried our luck. Luckily for us we were able to get in as there was only one reservation left. We walked here from our hotel. It was an easy walk a few miles away. To our surprise as we were eatting our dinner Kevin Costner comes in with a...

    Had a rehearsal dinner cancelled after having it confirmed, and had the date given to another party. Terrible service, nobody in charge, and left without a reservation after having a confirmation by phone. Never even got to eat at the place, but if you are serious about the event you are booking, stay away from the Palace Cafe. There are many good...

    Cafe Mespero is relatively cheap, but you get what you pay for. I ordered the French Onion soup for lunch that arrive luke warm with the cheese pretty much a solid block. My wife ordered a hamburger, my son ordered the chicken sandwich. Both were dried out and cold - and this was at 12:30. My advice - pony up the extra money and go somewhere else....

    New Orleans Restaurants

    We visited Market Café one morning when we were looking for a place to eat something after a long walk around French Quarter early in the morning. Places like this are ideal for breakfast because of the outdoor sitting. The patio is partly covered but watch out for the birds :) For $20 we had cappuccino coffee and we ordered a huge muffuletta (pic...

During one of these adventures, he becomes a shrimp boat owner with his buddy Captain Dan and his former Army buddy, Bubba. From the movie, restauranteurs took note of the...

    New Orleans Restaurants

    I am a Hard Rock Cafe junkie - I seek them out, they are part of my travel destination criteria. That being said, I love this location. That it is my local Hard Rock makes me a bit biased, since I have visited this one more times than any other. The St. Peters Street location moved in December 2012; it is now located in the heart of the French...

  • Deja Vu

    Deja Vu is a bar with a good selection of beers and decent food located a block from Bourbon Street in the French Quarter. It is not fancy, but had a decent menu of burgers, sandwiches and local dishes such as gumbo, jumbalaya, and catfish. It's a nice place to get an hour or two of relief from the noise and craziness of Bourbon Street. It also has...

    Galatoire's is New Orleans, especially on a Friday afternoon when the locals come for lunch and stay through the afternoon drinking Champagne. Anything Creole can be excellent at Galatoire's from fried foods, to fish papilotte to their chops. Diners can pick and choose from a selection of sauces for their food. Bernaise on your steak...no problem....

I called as I never trust the web. I was told they were...

    The resturant is done up very nice. Looks like a very classy place. Very clean and bright on the insider. We had breakfast Bayou omelettes. We were very disappointed. The food wassub par and the service was just as bad. The waiteress didn't seem to really care about her job. For the price we paid, it really started our day off in a bad way.

    New Orleans Restaurants

    Located in the Garden District, Winnie's is owned by two local artists. The menu is pretty simple, but the food is wonderful. You will not leave hungry. The interior is decorated with unique artwork and bright colors. The Create-Your-Own Breakfast Burrito is fantastic. Very fresh and more than enough for one person.

  • Frank's

    New Orleans Restaurants

    New Orleans like all tourist towns has its share of institutions cum tourist traps. When it comes to food doubly so. The Muffuletta is New Orleans answer to Philly's Hoagie, an Italian sandwich made with cold cuts and a very tasty olive salad. The Central Market right in the French Quarter gets credit for inventing them as well as serving the best....

  • Pat O'Brien's

    New Orleans Restaurants

    When you walk in the place has low lighting but it also has a lighted fountain (2 actually). It can be a romantic place an night. The music, the lighting and the food make it all worthwhile. The main area is actually a courtyard. There are 3 bars and a resturant part. We just had burgers and drinks. They were very good.

    During the research for this trip, I used many sources, including TripAdvisor to scope out the spots to eat.

Several "foodies" recommended the omelets at the Cafe, so I thought I would test their credentials....
