5030 Freret St, New Orleans, LA 70115, USA
Dat Dog is a local hotspot that serves top quality hot dogs with a NOLA twist. You can get classic pork or beef wieners, kielbasa, and bratwurst—but you're encouraged to be adventurous by trying something more usual like the crawfish or...
307 Exchange Pl, New Orleans, LA 70130, USA
Sweet and salty, creamy and crunchy, full of caramel and smoky roasted tidbits, the bacon sundae at the Green Goddess is worth all the hype. In addition to unusual desserts, the Green Goddess offers a menu combining Asian, Latino, and Creole...
930 Tchoupitoulas St suite a, New Orleans, LA 70130, USA
Bourbon St. is the most (in)famous street in New Orleans, but I would argue Andrew Higgins Blvd has the most to offer in the Crescent City. A few blocks away from the French Quarter, you can find the National World II Museum and the amazing Cochon...
310 Chartres St, New Orleans, LA 70130, USA
I wasn't sure what to expect from SoBou, a restaurant from Commander's Palace, but it wasn't gold-and-black interiors, walls of illuminated glass bottles, and an almost Scandinavian aesthetic. This sleek spot, whose name refers to its South of...

3218 Dauphine St, New Orleans, LA 70117, USA
Tattooed, yoga mat-toting hipsters frequent this Bywater haunt for its locally roasted coffee, kale salads, and just-pressed juices. And on select weekday nights, the space plays host to a pop-up called Twilight Tacos. The succinct menu includes...
7318, 2900 Chartres St, New Orleans, LA 70117, USA
Chef Ian Schnoebelen made a name for himself (and earned a Best New Chef nod from Food & Wine) with Iris, originally located in a tiny Creole cottage in Uptown, and now thriving on the ground floor of the Bienville House Hotel. His latest venture,...
617 Piety St, New Orleans, LA 70117, USA
The pizza pop-up started by New York-born Tulane grads now has permanent digs in the Bywater—plus more crispy, thin-crust pies, pastas, wines, and microbrews. There's dessert too, but, by lucky coincidence, the new location is across the...
