When you think "festival food," hamburgers, hotdogs, funnel cakes, deep-fried Oreos and maybe a few slices of pizza come to mind. But here in the New Orleans French Quarter we've kicked it up a notch, as NOLA chef Emeril Lagasse likes to say. The vendors of this year’s French Quarter Festival (April 13 -16, 2023) have made festival food an art form.
Prime Roast Beef Debris Po-Boys, White Chocolate King Cake Bread Pudding with Rum Sauce, Shrimp and Alligator Sausage King Cake and more will be available for feasting upon this April. Plus, you can enjoy this sumptuous cuisine with a side of sweet jazz, funk, classical, Cajun, zydeco, brass bands and gospel.
Check out what some of our favorite restaurants will be serving at French Quarter Festival 2023 – and don't forget to pack your stretchy pants!
