BEST New Orleans Restuarants


Recommended Posts

There are lots of them. What neighborhood? What cuisine?

New Orleans home cooking. True Orleans style and soul food. 

We are staying at the Hilton Riverside.  Anywhere within a mile or two.

A non-exclusive list follows. Most have web sites with menus. Some are walking distance and some a short UBER ride. These places come and go, so make sure they are still open. None are touristy. Lots of locals. Except for Bayona, none are expensive.



Willie Mae's

Lil Dizzy

Willa Jean

Dooky Chase

Praline Connection

Suzie's Soulhouse

French Toast

Bennechin (African)

Bayona, for an expensive but memorable meal.

Others are welcome to add to this list.

There are lots of restaurants in the Warehouse District, close to where you will be staying, so take a look at those too.

Grand Isle has great fried seafood. Think oysters or shrimp, and a prize-winning  Po-Boy.

The restaurants I listed are not far from the Marigny. Praline Connection is on Frenchmen Street, the heart of the Marigny. Also on Frenchmen is Adolfo's. Never been there but have heard good things about it.


Lots of good music clubs in or near the Marigny:
