Creole | Carrollton, New Orleans

I love this restaurant! The menu has something for everyone. And everything I’ve ever had here is delicious. The onion rings are fabulous. The wedge salad is huge and so delicious. The toffee pudding cake is to die for. The sides are amazing. It’s casual and fun. Right next to rock and bowl. (The same people own them both.) Service is great. This is a go to place for us. And it’s reasonably priced too! More

WarbucksWarbucks
$$$$
Contemporary American | Uptown, New Orleans

Warbucks is an ultra-magnetic neighborhood restaurant that mixes technique and creativity in equal measure. Located on Magazine Street in New Orleans' historic Uptown neighborhood, Warbucks is the brainchild of Executive Chef Todd Pulsinelli, former Executive Chef of August. Here, Chef Pulsinelli takes the commitment to quality and the techniques of a fine-dining restaurant and reinterprets them for a playful and laid back environment with a casual selection of small plates, sandwiches, and salads. Chef Pulsinelli’s menu and décor harness the essence of 90s rap, skateboarding, and hip-hop culture to serve up imaginative and eclectic dishes. In true New Orleans fashion, Warbucks features to-go cocktails and frozen drinks, as well as a full bar. More

Discover New Orleans

French, Spanish and Creole influences evolved New Orleans cuisine into a genre all its own. Combine Gulf coast seafood, a butter-based sauce and Cajun spices, and you’re looking at a classic Nola dish. Take the famed crawfish boil, for instance, which locals advise is best eaten as a family. In the aftermath of hurricane Katrina, the restaurant industry banded together to support their city in the wake of serious devastation. New restaurants began opening their doors, and today you’ll find a wealth of cuisines that span the classics to modern reinventions to everything in between.
