  • Eat Your Heart Out: New Orleans

    My favorite places to eat in the best food city in America.

  • Spitfire Coffee

    1

    Coffee Shop

    People always ask where to find the best coffee in the Quarter. I haven't tested as many places as I should, but Spitfire stands out for quality.

  • Sylvain

    2

    Gastropub

    Fantastic cocktails, great bar in the front, quality food in the back.

  • Brigtsen's Restaurant

    3

    Cajun / Creole

    Quietly confident, this unassuming family-run restaurant may be the best Creole in the city.

  • Verti Marte

    4

    Sandwiches

    Like a phoenix from the ashes, rebuilt after a fire a few years back. Best muffuletta in town. Have them grill it to make it warm & crispy.

  • R & O's Pizza Restaurant

    5

    Pizza

    Never mind the pizza, what you want to order here is the fully dressed roast beef poboy, with gravy. It is ethereal, and might be the best in the city.

  • Arnaud's Restaurant

    6

    Cajun / Creole

    "Jazz Brunch" is a concept that normally sends me running. At Arnaud's, everything is perfect and done with an amazing attention to detail.

  • Stella!

    7

    American

    The other best breakfast in the Quarter. Rich and filling brunch dishes and fantastic bloody marys.

  • Dick & Jenny's

    8

    Cajun / Creole

    One of my favorite places to go for crawfish in season.

  • Lüke

    9

    French

    A straightforward spot from hero chef John Besh, the menu speaks German-inflected English: seafood platters alongside sausages, rabbit and good beer.

  • Galatoire's

    10

    Cajun / Creole

    A beautiful classic of New Orleans fine dining. Spend 3 hours at lunch on a Friday to see true New Orleans.

  • Elizabeth's

    11

    Southern / Soul

    Down home spot for breakfast, far from the maddening crowds of the Quarter.

  • Dickie Brennan's Steakhouse

    12

    Steakhouse

    Another classic, and worth the money.

  • Commander's Palace

    13

    Southern / Soul

    The first kitchen I ever got to cook at in New Orleans (no, I don't know the turtle soup recipe). A gorgeous throwback to traditional NOLA cooking.

  • Cochon Restaurant

    14

    American

    Donald Link's forever-packed shrine to the humble pig, that magical animal. Get here early if you don't have a reservation.

  • Restaurant August

    15

    Cajun / Creole

    Fine dining at its best in the city. Another worthy destination restaurant from John Besh.
