Local Experts: New Orleans, Hadi Ktiri

Hadi Ktiri is a food and drinks expert who lives in New Orleans. A seasoned traveler very early on, he grew up eating curry, couscous, and escargot. So when he moved to New Orleans in 2009, devouring crawfish by the pound seemed natural. He currently serves as the assistant director of food and beverage at Four Seasons New Orleans. Outside of his work in hospitality, he writes for Napkin Local, a website devoted to giving a local’s perspective on where to go for the best in food, drink, and culture. When Hadi's not scouring NOLA for new adventures, he likes smoking cigars and sipping rum in his quiet French Quarter courtyard.

• 13+ years of experience living in New Orleans
• Received a bachelor’s degree in accounting and business management from McNeese State University
