New Orleans is a cultural mixing pot of French, Creole, Southern low country, and African roots—and you can see each of these reflected in the city's cuisine, making it a must-visit for any food lover. Bourbon Street is a major draw, with loads of restaurants and bars—but smaller neighborhoods like the Garden District and Faubourg Marugny are dripping with Creole touches, like old oak trees and jazz clubs. With over 1,000 restaurants in the city, it can be hard to narrow down the top restaurants in New Orleans. But where are the smartest, savviest diners eating out? Welcome to our Tastemaker List.
