The Best New Orleans Restaurants – Free Guide

Great Eats in New Orleans

I lived in New Orleans for a brief time as a teenager, and promptly fell in love with the city. My parents were constantly going out to try local neighborhood restaurants and bars and as I recall they never had a complaint about any of them. I fell in love with the old streets and architecture, not just in the French Quarter but also out in the Garden District. I loved sitting near the doors of little bars and listening to the jazz and blues, happy that I had a lemonade or a Shirley Temple while my parents enjoyed more lively drinks.

Now that I have traveled and eaten in restaurants the world over I can say without a doubt that the greater New Orleans area is home to some of the best, most authentic food and restaurants in the United States. Like many cities, NOLA has its share of restaurants made famous by decades of tourists, and some of those famous places are indeed wonderful places to eat. In many cities some of the restaurants are small places found in strip malls and tucked away in neighborhoods, and New Orleans restaurants are the same.

A Restaurant Guide Sourced By Locals

My complimentary New Orleans Restaurant Guide consists of all types of restaurants, from coffee shops to fine dining. Every single one of the listings was recommended by locals. All of the restaurants in this guide were mentioned more than once, some of them dozens of times.

My goal in publishing this guide is to help travelers who end up in the Big Easy find whatever type of dining you are looking for, and to explore the many parts of the city and its outlying suburbs and smaller towns.
