Must-Visit Restaurants in New Orleans
Imagine a delightful, music-filled brunch with the most delicious food you can imagine. Brunch in New Orleans is festive and gets to the heart of the city’s pulse: food and music. Enjoy down home New Orleans southern classics such as fried green tomatoes, entrees with a New Orleans twist, to one of the scrumptious New Orleans desserts, pecan pies.
Besides getting a Po-Boy sandwich in most of the restaurants around New Orleans be sure to try the Gumbo. This dish is full of history and flavor. Each chef has his own recipe (most say the secret is in the roux) for gumbo. There are okra gumbo, chicken and sausage gumbo, seafood gumbo and filÃ© gumbo just to name a few. All make a nearly perfect traditional New Orleans gumbo.
If you haven’t tried crawfish yet, you must try it here. Louisiana is known for their mud bugs or crawfish “a delicacy” you probably can’t find in your hometown. Crawfish etouffee is thicker than gumbo and full of flavor. And do not forget to taste Jambalaya, a dish full of seafood, chicken, sausage, spices with hit of hot sauce.
