Restaurants in New Orleans

Located in the Magazine Street antiques district, Lilette’s has been repeatedly named a top restaurant in New Orleans. Award-winning Chef John Harris, who apprenticed at restaurants with two Michelin stars in France, specializes in Contemporary American cuisine.

The roots of the Old Absinthe House date back to 1807, when the small building served as an importing business and, subsequently, a grocery store.

In the heady mix that is New Orleans, Mimi’s celebrates the Gulf Coast sound and all the smoky, sweaty soul that comes with it.

This 1919 landmark in the Garden District is acclaimed for its seafood gumbo, soft-shell crabs, signature "pan bread," and fresh-shucked Gulf oysters, just $8.50 for a dozen. Casemento's thrives on being exceedingly good at what it does and charging reasonable prices.

Celebrity chef, Susan Spicer's restaurant in Lakeview features an eclectic, globalized menu: a ceviche with fresh tortilla chips and guacamole; Thai shrimp and pork meatballs; pizza from a wood-burning oven; deviled eggs.

Operating under the motto "Anyone can put the heat to the meat, but only a few can barbecue" since 1983, A & R is perhaps the pinnacle of BBQ in Memphis.

Don’t let the modest, rustic appearance and off-the-beaten-path location of Domilise’s Po-Boy & Bar on Annuciation Street fool you. The food here is well-worth a sidetrack. Once inside you’ll find simple tables and wood-paneled walls, and possibly a line.
