Contemporary Italian | Central Business District, New Orleans

I live in NOLa and have many options of where to dine. JE has become a relaxing, Enjoyable get-away after a long day or week. The staff knows me by name and knows my preferences, ie no salt, bottled water, Boyd & Blair Gimlet, black napkin if needed, Efficient service if before a show at the Saenger... The food is another raving opportunity. If you want to actually ‘taste’ the individual Ingredients every dish is perfectly prepared! Can’t wait to go back! More

American | Uptown, New Orleans

Bistro Daisy remains one of my very favorite restaurants in New Orleans for a long time. The food is always excellent. You really cannot go wrong with any of the dishes or specials. Great appetizers and salads. Excellent seafood as you would expect in New Orleans. If you are a meat eater the steak, duck and even chicken are fantastic. A vegetarian choice as well. A very good bar, and some of the best and friendly service anywhere. Locals love it, and visitors should try it. 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.
