New Orleans is packed with tons of fantastic restaurants. Even as a local, it sometime seems impossible to narrow down the appetizing choices. But don’t fret foodies, August is the month to dine out and let your taste buds explore the city. This is because over 80 award winning restaurants will be serving up some of their famous dishes at unbelievably affordable prices all month long.
