Restaurants in New Orleans

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.

Named for the traditional Louisiana hog slaughtering celebration, Boucherie was established by Commander’s Palace and Stella alum Nathanial Zimet. Zimet first brought inventive fine dining to the masses with his purple food truck, Que Crawl, which eventually led to the creation of Boucherie.

A small round sign advertising warm beer, lousy food, and poor service marks the location of this lively uptown eatery.

This new eatery on Jackson Square in the French Quarter is local chef Scott Boswell's wake up call.
