Seafood | Warehouse District, New Orleans

This was our last dinner in New Orleans, and honestly we only ate here because we had a Groupon (prior to this we ate at Commander’s palace for lunch and Atchafalaya for breakfast to give context). We had the scallops over grits and the blackened redfish which were both good but a little pricey relative to creativity and portion. In addition to the food being good, our server was fantastic! We would recommend this restaurant on a deal, but not as an full price option. 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.
