Restaurants in New Orleans
Brass-band jazz and BBQ joint
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.
Prominent amid the colorful and detailed architecture and ornate street lamps of the French Quarter is the global-modern restaurant Stella.
Opened in 2001 by James Beard Award-winner and New Orleans native John Besh, August has become a fine dining favorite in the Central Business District.
