Local New Orleans Restaurants

 
 

Feasting is a big part of Carnival celebrations—and we don’t just mean king cake! Before Lent, get your fill of fresh seafood, po-boys, gumbo, jambalaya and other Cajun and Creole specialties. It wouldn’t be listed below if we didn’t recommend it.

Featured Restaurant

The Court of Two Sisters

The Court of Two Sisters


Second line through the Charm Gates at The Court of Two Sisters and feast in the courtyard. One of the French Quarter’s most famous restaurants, it offers live jazz brunches and a menu where you can sample all the iconic New Orleans dishes you’ve always read about. There’s nothing like Carnival time at The Court of Two Sisters.

Felix’s Restaurant & Oyster Bar

Felix’s Restaurant & Oyster Bar


You haven’t been to the French Quarter if you haven’t been to Felix’s. Come take a seat at the oyster bar at this iconic seafood eatery and let the shuckers entertain you. And don’t let its location fool you. This is where the locals go, not just during Mardi Gras time but all the time.

Crescent City Brewhouse

Crescent City Brewhouse


This krewe knows their brews! The only microbrewery in the French Quarter is home to a fabulous oyster bar and an inventive menu, too. We recommend anything served on their pretzel bun, and the Boudin Grilled Cheese on sourdough is pretty awesome, too. Plus, they offer live jazz nightly.

New Orleans School of Cooking


In between parades, why not take in a little “food, fun and folklore” at the New Orleans School of Cooking, named the #2 Food Experience in the World in Trip Advisor’s Travelers’ Choice Awards.

Olde NOLA Cookery

Olde NOLA Cookery


Bourbon Street is more than bars—it’s home to some really slammin’ restaurants like Olde NOLA Cookery. Stroll on in for some Louisiana Crabmeat Cakes, Redfish Cookery, or “Knife & Fork” BBQ Ribs. On chilly parade days, eat outdoors by their firepit.
