One of the loveliest places to dine outdoors in New Orleans is Café Degas on Esplanade, a short stroll from the New Orleans Museum of Art. If you want proof that New Orleans is indeed the Paris of America, Café Degas is it.

The Riverboat CITY of NEW ORLEANS, sister vessel to the Steamboat NATCHEZ, is about to go into the history books as the newest floating palace on Old Man River. Like New Orleans riverboats of old, the cuisine will be magnificent, the music soul-stirring, and the adventure one you will remember for a lifetime.
Porter & Luke’s offers an authentic menu with fresh ingredients. From Fried Green Tomatoes and Shrimp Remoulade to Cowboy Ribeye and Fettuccini Alfredo, there’s nothing this restaurant doesn’t make well.

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.
