- MMMichaelMvipNew Orleans / Louisiana •32 reviews5.0Dined 1 day agoOnce again, great service & great food. Skiff Bay oysters had good size, salinity & texture. I’d put their seafood gumbo up against any other, not only from a flavor aspect but also from the amount of seafood, sausage & okra in it. If you’re a fan of Brussels Sprouts, they have really good ones. My only disappointment was that the Schnitzel seems to have been taken off of the menu (hopefully not permanently). Bar is well stocked & cocktail selection is good. It’s hard to just nail down one absolute favorite place in NOLA, but if i could only have one, this is it.More infoLuke$$$$Price: Moderate• French• Central Business District•4.6
- OTOpenTable DinerNew Orleans / Louisiana •5 reviews5.0Dined 1 day agoOne of our favorite spots! We usually come by a few times a year and are NEVER disappointed. This time we chose apps instead of mains. And of course cocktails! Bacon Braised Collard Greens from the daily specials. We also chose Smoked Fish Dip, Crispy Cod Sliders, Deviled Eggs, Korean Fried Chicken Wings and Pad Thai Cauliflower. For cocktails we started with English Turn, Tchoup and Albariño. All so good! It was also our 11 year anniversary and they surprised us with some cotton candy and a sparkler! Perfection!More infoMeril$$$$Price: Moderate• Contemporary American• Warehouse District•4.7
- FFoodie4evervipLos Angeles •14 reviews5.0Dined 2 days agoExcellent meal! From the pre dinner cocktails all the way through to dessert at the end, we really enjoyed our first dining experience from Mr B’s bistro. The mahi mahi was excellent & the seafood jambalaya delicious. We shared the strawberry cake for dessert & loved it! Everything was delicious and well prepared. I would definitely recommend Mr. B’s & we will be back the next time we are in New Orleans!More infoMr. B's Bistro$$$$Price: Expensive• Creole• French Quarter•4.6
- BHBlainHNew Orleans / Louisiana •2 reviews5.0Dined 3 days agoBreakfast at Brennans is one of the legendary things one must do in New Orleans. This Monday that what we planned to do. From arrival through departure our experience was excellent. The service was professional yet friendly and thorough. Coffee was poured when one quarter cup was reached. Water was filled the same. We ate in the courtyard which did not feature white tablecloths, but the service was just that: white tablecloth! The food, as expected, was perfectly prepared and presented. It was also very tasty! The sunny side-up duck egg on the duck confit hash was perfectly prepared and made the dish perfectly photogenic. The seafood gumbo was also well presented and the biscuit was huge. To dine at Brennan’s without the legendary Bananas Foster would be a sin and we were sinless. The table-side preparation and story were amazing. The resulting dessert (for breakfast, no less) was wonderful. Legend we have met you and your name is Brennan’s!More infoBrennan's$$$$Price: Expensive• Creole• French Quarter•4.7

Superior service continues to set New Orleans’s restaurant scene apart. Among the standouts, there’s a brand-new izakaya helmed by a meticulous executive chef who spent time in Japan and a Mid-City tapas bar that churns out a one-of-its-kind, afterhours brunch for the midnight munchies. Book one, book all, and be warmly welcomed at these four new restaurants, representing the best of New Orleans right now.
The Carrollton neighborhood of New Orleans, located near Canal and Bienville, is a melting pot of various nationalities serving delicious food to the public. Diners have been coming to this neighborhood since before 1929 to find great food. More recently, a move to renovate the establishments in the area began with the opening of an Italian restaurant in 1979. Soon, chefs preparing other cuisine types, including Spanish and Latin American, joined the Italian restaurant in Carrollton. After Hurricane Katrina hit the area, many fast-food chains began businesses in this neighborhood because of the number of college students moving here. These establishments were soon joined by New American bistros and iconic Cajun eateries.
