Brass-band jazz and BBQ joint

Serving up Cajun and Southern cuisine, Cochon on Tchoupitoulas Street is owned by James Beard award-winning chefs Donald Link and Stephen Strykewski. The spacious dining area boasts high ceilings, large windows, handmade modern wood-plank chairs and tables, and a bar made of etched steel.

From the homemade sangria to the vibrant, come-as-you-are atmosphere, Lola's is everything a Spanish joint seated in New Orleans should be.

A Mid-City neighborhood favorite, Mandina’s has been a local tradition and run by the same family since 1932. Open daily, this family-friendly eatery on Canal Street serves up both Louisiana and Italian favorites.

This is a local’s hangout first and tourist stop second, despite its close proximity to the convention center. For no-nonsense barbecue, Ugly Dog Saloon excels with a barebones menu: beef brisket, pulled pork, rotisserie chicken, smoked sausage, and burgers. All sandwiches wallop 1/4lb.

The debate over who serves the best po’ boy in New Orleans still rages, but one candidate lies just off the Jefferson Highway in the west end of the city.
