The main reason why I went to New Orleans? The food of course! In my opinion, New Orleans has consistently had one of the best food scenes in the country for decades (I would say centuries, but, you know, I’m not quite old enough to know that!)
New Orleans restaurants have doubled after Hurricane Katrina. I knew I had to try the Cajun dishes that NOLA is known for, but there are so many talented chefs in the city that offer any kind of cuisine your heart desires. Try the po boys, red beans and rice and the beignets, but also don’t skip out on these modern New Orleans restaurants below that serve Southern cuisine and seafood with a twist!
