Restaurants in The New Orleans Area

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.

Located about an hour outside of New Orleans, La Provence brings the flavors of France to rural Louisiana. Owned by celebrated local chef John Besh, the restaurant evokes the French countryside with its hardwood floors, exposed oak beams, and stucco walls hung with bucolic artwork.
