From jambalaya to gumbo, from oysters to crawfish étoufée, from pralines to beignets, from muffalettas to po’ boys, no visit to New Orleans is complete without sampling some of New Orleans’ mouthwatering cuisine.  The embodiment of comfort food, the offerings of the following restaurants are sure to please. Here’s where to eat in New Orleans.  Bon appetit!


Arnaud’s – Located in the French Quarter, New Orleans’ largest restaurant offers the quintessential dining experience. The restaurant’s live jazz, French 75 Bar, and Sunday brunch are highly recommended.

Gautreau’s – This lovely Uptown establishment blends traditional French cuisine with modern influences. I’ll have the sautéed cobia with champagne beurre blanc, s’il vous plaît.

Commander’s Palace – The ambience and creative menu are what you’d expect from an upscale dining experience in New Orleans. From creole bread pudding soufflé to griddle seared fish, the presentation is impeccable.


Langlois – This Cajun and Creole restaurant offers hands-on cooking classes and is a great place for light fare, such as creole mustard potato salad and blackened shrimp Marseilles.

Napoleon House – Housed in a 200-year old building that was supposedly intended as a residence for exiled French emperor, Napoleon Bonaparte, this French Quarter establishment is well known for its muffalettas. Its shrimp remoulade stuffed avocado is out of this world!

Meals From the Heart Café – Located in the historic French Market, this café serves made-from-scratch and healthy options, including organic, vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free dishes. The crab cakes are its pièce de résistance.


Dat Dog – This quaint spot makes any type of hot dog you can imagine with all the Louisiana fixings.
