Food
Great places to eat around town, for all tastes and budgets. I have personally tried all of these places.
Hip neighborhood spot for homemade breakfast and brunch offerings served out of a converted old laundromat. Outdoor seating only so go on a nice day. Limited menu during the summer months.

Home of America's best fried chicken! This is an iconic neighborhood spot. Their name has really gotten out, so expect long lines of tourists waiting to get in.

Small French Quarter convenience store with a food counter in back preparing delicious, affordable, and plentiful plate meals and sandwiches. The bread pudding here is not to be missed! No seating but grab a seat on the curb or take your food to enjoy on the river. Open 24 hours. Cash only.

Fantastic Mediterranean cuisine in an intimate setting off beautiful Esplanade Ave. Order "The Feast" and you will not be disappointed. Vegetarian and vegan friendly options. No reservations, but you can grab a beer at the supermarket next door to enjoy outside while you wait for your table.

My favorite restaurant in the city. Creative, contemporary takes on southern cuisine, served in a friendly and unpretentious setting. I highly recommend the blind tasting menu. It's great for special occasions or if you just want a meal that will totally blow you away. If you're looking for something more budget friendly, head there for brunch and order some family-style fried chicken! Reservations always recommended.

Quintessential New Orleans dining experience and an institution in the city's restaurant scene for many many years. While their dinner menu is definitely pricey, head there for brunch or lunch to get a real taste of refined creole cooking at a good price. During weekday lunch they serve 25 cent martinis too! Reservations always recommended. And dress up for this one, no shorts allowed.

If you're downtown and need a pick me up, this is a great spot to grab a cup of coffee! They have a simple, focused menu and are expert in preparing all their drinks. One of the best pour-overs in the city too! Be warned that they have recently raised their prices to what I would consider a bit unreasonable, but if you don't mind paying for a quality cup of coffee you're in good hands.

Part convenience store part restaurant, Cleo's is one of your best bets for late night eats after a night of fun in the French Quarter/downtown. If you're unsure what to get, I highly recommend the eggplant platter, garlicky and delicious! They also have a huge selection of non-alcoholic beverages, with some really surprising flavors (buffalo chicken soda anyone ?!?). Open 24 hours. BYOB.

In a city spoiled for choice when it comes to delicious Vietnamese food, I find myself constantly back at Lilly's to get my fix. This is a great spot for a quick lunch or casual dinner, and the staff is very efficient and consistent. Everything on the menu is outstanding, but I'm particular to their pho, spicy Saigon spring rolls, and spicy tofu.

New Orleans' BBQ scene has really come into its own in recent years, and there may be no better example of this thank Blue Oak. This place is the real deal (brisket lean or fatty, sliced or chopped), and beyond the expected fare you will sometimes find some creative offerings on the menu. Do NOT pass up on the Brussels sprouts!

The Blind Pelican is pretty standard bar/restaurant fare, the REAL reason to go there is for the daily oyster special from 4-8pm. $3 for a dozen raw oysters -- and that is not a typo. The one "catch" is that you need to order and adult beverage for every dozen oysters to get the deal. But you were going to get a beer anyway, so enjoy! The restaurant is conveniently located right on the St Charles streetcar line, and I recommend getting there early for the oyster special.

This place has recently exploded in popularity, even gaining lots of recognition on the national food scene. But it's not the fine dining restaurant you'd expect based on the accolades. Instead, they serve very playful takes on childhood comfort foods (yes they have a bologna sandwich). Worth a try if you're in the area for lunch.

You've heard about Willie Mae's, but if you're looking for a much less touristy experience and equally delicious fried chicken check out Manchu Food Store. This is a neighborhood landmark and extremely popular with locals. There is no seating here (it's a convenience store with a kitchen), so your best bet is to take your order to nearby Armstrong Park or the French Quarter to enjoy an impromptu picnic.

A timeless New Orleans dining experience. Upperline is an unpretentious neighborhood restaurant that gives you a true taste of New Orleans cuisine and hospitality. Their 3-course dinner is the way to go, and this is a great place to celebrate a special occasion or just treat yourself to a damn good meal. The fish meunière is unparalleled.

I don't recommend many places in the French Quarter because they're either tourist traps or just overpriced, but Dian Xin is a solid bet if you're wandering the Quarter looking for good Chinese food. I highly recommend the soup dumplings, and their menu has a huge variety of other offerings that is more "traditional" than your typical Chinese-American restaurant. Get their early to put your name on the wait list as this small restaurant fills up fast!

If you're looking for that "taste of New Orleans" look no further than Gabrielle Restaurant. This institution took a 10 year break after Hurricane Katrina before reopening nearby on Orleans Avenue. Their gumbo is consistently rated one of the best in the city. While it is a little more upscale, they offer a great value for the quality of food. A neighborhood gem.

If this is the first time you've heard of "Slavic Soul Food", do yourself a favor and get over to the Green Room. If you're indecisive, or just don't want to bother with the translations, try the Slavic Sampler.

The Elysian Bar is housed in the magnificent Hotel Peter and Paul, a renovated and repurposed catholic church and school. It's worth stopping by this place just to see the building, as it's one of the finest property renovations in the city. While you're there, grab a coffee in the afternoon, a drink during "aperitif hour", or enjoy an excellent selection of well-composed dishes for lunch or dinner. Do not leave without seeing the gorgeous bar.

While New Orleans has a great selection of quality Middle Eastern eateries, Saba is surely the crown jewel. This upscale, modern Israeli restaurant has a mouthwatering menu of new and familiar favorites and offers tons of small plates so you can try a bit of everything. The housemade pita bread will change your life. Tip: Do NOT confuse this with "Shaya", another Middle Eastern restaurant on the same street. Definitely go to Saba instead :)

Drinks & Nightlife
The craft brewing scene has recently exploded into New Orleans. But with all the new breweries in town, I always find myself back at Courtyard. I believe this is technically a "micro-brewery", but they always have a huge selection and variety of consistently delicious brews. It's mostly outdoor seating, so go on a nice night. And it's a surprisingly relaxing spot tucked away in an unlikely location. They have rotating food trucks come through each night. If I had to define how New Orleans "does" craft beer, this would be it.

Ready to escape the craziness of the French Quarter? Check out City Park! This massive city green space (bigger than Central Park in NYC!) is a great place to take a leisurely stroll among old oak trees and beautiful water features. The park also has tons of activities including a free outdoor sculpture garden, mini golf, swan boat rental, an art museum, golf courses, a coffee and beignet stand, and much much more!

I cannot recommend this museum enough. Even if you're not a history buff, the National WWII Museum is a truly impressive experience and world-class attraction. The museum is huge and includes a range of different exhibits and activities. You could easily spend 2-3 days exploring everything, so pace yourself accordingly depending on how much time you have and what you want to see. Do not miss the US Freedom Pavilion which houses a jaw-dropping collection of aircraft and other vehicles.

While a bit overpriced, Mardi Gras World is a fun and interesting experience that gives you a behind-the-scenes look at "how Mardi Gras is made". They offer tours of their working float workshop. Visit during the weekdays, when they're busy creating and working, to see the place in action. They also house tons of Mardi Gras floats here during the off season, which makes for great photo opportunities!

Looking to catch a movie? The Broad Theater is a 15-20 minute walk from the apartment and my favorite movie theater in the city. Their four screens show a wonderful variety of films from the current blockbusters to indie films and everything in between.

Located right at the top of the French Quarter, Louis Armstrong Park is one of the most culturally and historically significant locations in the city.

If you want to take in some nature during your visit you can't do much better than the Jean Lafitte park and preserve. This national park is free and open to the public, and they offer several miles of easy walking trails through pristine swamp and marsh land. If you go during the right time of year you will probably see some alligators! You will need a car to get there, but there is parking available at the park.

If you're looking to hear some local music Frenchmen Street is a safe bet. There are over a dozen music clubs clustered around the first few blocks of Frenchmen Street (starting from the east side of the French Quarter). While some of the clubs charge a cover, many do not so you can come and go as you please. If you've found Bourbon Street to be a bit too much, you might feel a bit more at ease on Frenchmen Street (though it still gets pretty crazy!).
