The topic of the “Best New Orleans Restaurants” could be quite controversial here in “Nawlins.” To avoid any arguments, I’m just posting what I’ve come to understand are the “must-try” foods, knowing I haven’t even breached the surface of all the great food there is to offer. I enjoy playing tour guide when family and friends come in to town, so some of these may be considered “touristy,” but this one’s for the tourists!

When you go to New Orleans, you need to get some fresh char-broiled oysters. My favorite spot for these is Dragos. I love it so much that I wrote a whole blog on the Dragos experience. Even if you hate oysters, dipping bread in the heavenly buttery sauce that the oysters are nestled in is heavenly.
For some upscale New Orleans dishes and seafood, my favorite spot so far is GW Fins. This is perfect for a date night or a couples dinner. Maybe I’m sentimental because it was one of the first dates I went on with my now husband. All you need to know is – cheddar biscuits, and bread pudding for dessert.
Barbecue shrimp. A New Orleans dish that isn’t really barbecued at all. Guests have been known to lick, or drink, their plates to get every last bit of buttery sauces at Mr. B’s Bistro.
Fried chicken. Another big debate here in Louisiana. Who has the best? There are tons of great spots, but Dooky Chase’s is very famous, with tons of history behind it.
New Orleanian’s – What are your favorites? The list could go on forever.
