Restaurants in New Orleans

Rio Mar, “where the river meets the sea,” is the restaurant of award-winning chef Adolfo Garcia, who fuses his Spanish and Latin American roots into a seafood-based menu.

This Australian-themed dive bar may seem out of place in New Orleans’s Central Business District, but the pub has a loyal following of locals thanks to its laid-back atmosphere and affordable, no-frills menu.

The Bywater restaurant doubles as a gallery space for local artists and has a genuine bohemian charm.

A local institution for more than a century, Commander’s Palace was first established in the Garden District in 1880. The authentic Creole restaurant, now owned by the Brennan family, is housed in a white and turquoise Victorian building with striped awnings and gingerbread detailing.
