New Orleans Restaurant Guide
Browsing: Courtyards Restaurants
On a beautiful day in New Orleans there's nothing better than sitting outdoors and enjoying a gourmet meal surrounded by the sights and sounds of the city. Just imagine yourself surrounded by lush folliage with the sounds of trickling fountains floating through the air while you sip a cold drink and nosh on local fare from some of the best chefs in the Big Easy. Make this image a reality and try one of the restaurants below that offer al fresco dining.
Unlike many plantations, Houmas House doesn’t feel like a museum but rather a grand old home – and that hospitality extends to meal time. You can dine like a sugar baron at your choice of Café Burnside, The Carriage House and Latil's Landing, and enjoy a cool libation or a glass of wine at the Turtle Bar and the Wine Cellars. There’s nothing like it on the Great River Road. And it’s all just an hour from New Orleans!
Steps from Bourbon Street, Oceana Grill's authentic Creole and Cajun delicacies, offers satisfaction for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Along with classic New Orleans dishes you have to try, their chefs can get pretty inventive (try the Redfish Oceana). And we think every meal at Oceana should be kicked off with a dozen raw oysters although some just can’t say no to the Gator Tail Bites.
Tucked away on Causeway Boulevard in Metairie, just a short drive from New Orleans, Gumbo Stop features comfort food using locally grown ingredients for a delicious and refreshing taste. The restaurant serves freshly made award-winning gumbo daily along with other New Orleans favorites such as po’ boys and red beans and rice.
