<ul><li><p>1 Compiled by Philip Anglewicz </p><p>A Restaurant Guide to New Orleans </p><p>New Orleans food is as delicious as the less criminal forms of sin. </p><p> Mark Twain </p><p>The following describes a few culinary highlights of New Orleans, organized by location. Restaurants </p><p>located in the French Quarter are all within walking distance of the Sheraton; others are a relatively </p><p>short taxi or streetcar ride away (along the Canal St. or St. Charles streetcar lines). </p><p>http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/1244.Mark_Twain</p></li><li><p>2 </p><p>Restaurants in the French Quarter </p><p>Name Website Description </p><p>Acme Oyster House http://www.acmeoysterhouse.com/ It's quality you can taste in the fresh, hand-shucked Louisiana oysters. Whether served ice cold on the half shell, chargrilled and sizzling in garlic butter or fried to golden perfection, Acme oysters are some of the best you'll ever have </p><p>Mr. Bs Bistro http://www.mrbsbistro.com/ Mr. B's Bistro, a New Orleans restaurant famous for its Creole cuisine with a focus on fresh regional products, is located in the heart of the French Quarter at the intersection of Royal Street and Iberville. This corner is a New Orleans landmark and celebrated food corner. Considered the original New Orleans gourmet bistro, Mr. B's Bistro is owned and managed by Cindy Brennan, a member of the legendary New Orleans' Brennan Family. </p><p>NOLA Restaurant http://www.emerils.com/restaurant/2/NOLA-Restaurant/welcome </p><p>Located in a renovated warehouse with a bright yellow stucco facade, large French door windows, and second floor balcony, NOLA is Emeril's casual and funky restaurant in the French Quarter. Featuring an eclectic menu of New Orleans Creole and Acadian cuisine with an occasional ethnic twist, the rustic style of cooking showcases Southern Cajun, Vietnamese and Southwestern influences using Louisiana products. Private dining rooms, a bread and pastry bakery and wine cellar are located on NOLA's third floor. </p><p>Stella! http://www.restaurantstella.com/ Stella! does things that no other restaurant in New Orleans does. Describing his style as classic meets modern, Chef Scott Boswell employs cutting-edge kitchen science in his pursuit of the next new thing. Technology gives us the ability to do a lot of neat things, Boswell says. I like to play with it, to figure out how to use it in the service of the food. His efforts are informed by cerebral technique and enhanced by unusual ingredients, and even the smallest of his plates typically presents a complex arrangement of influences, colors and styles. </p><p>Galatoire's Restaurant </p><p>http://www.galatoires.com/ The grand dame of New Orleans' old-line restaurants, Galatoires has remained committed to culinary excellence for more than a century. Under the guidance of the fourth generation of family ownership, it is her time-honored customs that still bind this renowned restaurant. Above all others, her rich tradition of serving authentic French Creole cuisine at a level that raises consistency to an art form. It is often said that the beauty of Galatoires is that things never change. Even after 100 years, ageless New Orleans favorites grace her menu just as they did in 1905. </p><p>http://www.acmeoysterhouse.com/http://www.mrbsbistro.com/http://www.emerils.com/restaurant/2/NOLA-Restaurant/welcomehttp://www.emerils.com/restaurant/2/NOLA-Restaurant/welcomehttp://www.restaurantstella.com/http://www.galatoires.com/</p></li><li><p>3 </p><p>Bayona http://www.bayona.com/ A chef-owner who is a local treasure (and the model for Chef Desautel on HBO's Treme series), perennially imaginative, superior food (after 20-plus years), and one of the finest wine lists and loveliest courtyards in the French Quarter are some of the reasons why Bayona hangs atop many "Best of" lists. When they're not at their best, service can be the sore point. Begin with the outstanding cream-of-garlic soup, a signature dish. Appetizers include grilled shrimp with coriander sauce and black-bean cakes, and delicate, flavorful veal sweetbreads sauted with scallions and diced potatoes in sherry mustard. Knockout entrees have included medallions of lamb loin with a goat cheese and zinfandel demi-glace; and a faultless grilled pork chop with polenta and roast tomatoes. Lunch brings Bayona's famed smoked-duck with cashew butter and pepper jelly. Superb desserts are fruit-forward: The rich mocha banana torte with caramelized pecans melts us. Saturday's $25 light lunch features a choice of three tapas-like plates. </p><p>GW Fins http://gwfins.com/ Step inside GW Fins and prepare to take your taste buds on a flavorful and exciting journey. GW Fins prides itself on serving the freshest and finest quality seafood available from around the world. Owners Gary Wollerman and Tenney Flynn have created a simple yet sophisticated menu philosophy. Chef Flynn incorporates cooking techniques that enhance the bright flavors of the seafood, rather than masking them with heavy sauces and other ingredients. The result is a delicious and memorable dining experience. And because GW Fins menu changes to reflect the seasonality of various ingredients, guests will always find something new and inventive to sample. </p><p>Arnauds http://www.arnaudsrestaurant.com/ Right in the heart of the French Quarter, Arnauds offers classic Creole Cuisine and exemplary service in beautifully restored turn of the century dining rooms.

Offering live Dixieland Jazz in the Jazz Bistro, romantic dinners in the Main Dining Room, cocktails in the award winning French 75 Bar and an assortment of private French Quarter fine dining rooms, Arnauds offers the quintessential New Orleans dining experience. </p><p>K-Paul's Louisiana Kitchen </p><p>http://www.kpauls.com/site.php In 1979, when Chef Paul Prudhomme and his late wife, K, opened their "modest", 62-seat K-Paul's Louisiana Kitchen on Chartres Street in the historic French Quarter of New Orleans, they had no idea the restaurant was soon to become a sensation, with nightly lines of eager diners waiting </p><p>http://www.bayona.com/http://gwfins.com/http://gwfins.com/about/owners/gary/http://gwfins.com/about/owners/tenney-flynn/http://www.arnaudsrestaurant.com/http://www.kpauls.com/site.php</p></li><li><p>4 </p><p>sometimes hours to be seated. That was back in the days when K-Paul's didn't accept reservations or credit cards! But now, under the hands-on direction of Chef Paul Prudhomme, the restaurant has gone through major changes to keep up with the growing demands of its clients and the times. </p><p>Dickie Brennans Steakhouse </p><p>http://www.dickiebrennanssteakhouse.com/ The art of beef preparation is our passion; that's why we grill our chops, sear our strips, oven roast our prime rib and broil our filets.

Join us for a delicious meal and some old-fashioned New Orleans hospitality. </p><p>Palace Caf http://www.palacecafe.com/ Our "Flavor of New Orleans" cuisine is served everyday at this upbeat and lively grand caf owned and operated by Dickie Brennan, of the famed New Orleans restaurant family.

We are as comfortable with showcasing Louisiana seafood, sausages, and local produce as we are bringing in exotic ingredients that reference New Orleans historic role as one of the greatest port cities in the world, where anything can be found. </p><p>Iris http://www.irisneworleans.com/ Chef Ian Schnoebelen and Maitre D Laurie Casebonne invite you to join them at Iris for an intimate evening filled with Chef Schnoebelens award winning contemporary American cuisine. </p><p>Caf Amelie http://www.cafeamelie.com/ Nestled in the historic 150-year-old Princess of Monaco Courtyard and Carriage House on Royal St. in the French Quarter, Caf Amelie is a rare combination of superb Louisiana fare served in a </p><p>http://www.dickiebrennanssteakhouse.com/http://www.palacecafe.com/http://www.muriels.com/http://www.muriels.com/html/aboutus.htmlhttp://www.muriels.com/html/ghost.htmlhttp://www.muriels.com/html/gallery.htmlhttp://www.muriels.com/html/gallery.htmlhttp://www.greengoddessnola.com/http://www.irisneworleans.com/http://www.irisneworleans.com/reviews/http://www.cafeamelie.com/</p></li><li><p>5 </p><p>lush, enchanting New Orleans courtyard setting. After opening in 2005, Caf Amelie quickly became a favorite of New Orleans locals and tourists alike, who faithfully flock to the caf for its delicious food and refreshing cocktails. </p><p>Port of Call http://portofcallnola.com/ The Port of Call was established in 1963 as a steakhouse located on beautiful, historic Esplanade Avenue in the French Quarter. The Port started as a quiet, small neighborhood restaurant open only at night, and has grown into an extremely popular destination for locals and tourists alike. Today the Port of Call is world famous for the burgers and steaks. The awards are many including Zagat Survey's Best Burger, Citysearch Best Burger in New Orleans and Gambit Weekly, Best Burger. Port of Call gives many thanks to the loyal customers who return again and again and again. </p><p>Coops Place http://www.coopsplace.net/ Since 1982, Coop's Place has delighted locals and visitors alike with its cozy atmosphere and great food. Just steps from New Orleans' famous French Market, Coop's Place is a great place to meet some of the local French Quarter personalities in the setting of a friendly neighborhood pub. Coop's Place is proud to offer free wireless Internet access to its customers. </p><p>http://portofcallnola.com/http://www.coopsplace.net/</p></li><li><p>6 </p><p>Restaurants along the Canal Street Streetcar Line </p><p>Mandinas http://www.mandinasrestaurant.com/ Tommy Mandina's family has owned and operated this restaurant and bar since the late 1800s, and neither the menu nor much of the staff has changed much in the last 50 years or so -- even after rebuilding from their post-Katrina hammering. This is a good thing. The daily specials are worth considering, but the tangy shrimp rmoulade and crawfish cakes make standout appetizers. Go for the greasy but yummy fried onion rings and buttery, garlicky bread for the table, and the seafood gumbo and turtle soup au sherry are always fine. The red beans and rice with Italian sausage is wonderful. We'd get that or the sweet Italian sausage and spaghetti combo, a favorite comfort food, if we could resist the brown-buttery trout meunire. But we often can't. Hardly innovative gourmet, but it's exactly the way we remember it from childhood. Bring a sweater; they're A/C enthusiasts. </p><p>Caf Minh http://www.cafeminh.com/ Cafe Minh takes those who haven't been there by surprise. In what had been old Mid-City neighborhood restaurant is a bright, sparking space designed with modern Asian themes. Panels of translucent panes allow light to move through and serve to block the wind when the front door opens. Tables are set beautifully, and the staff is omnipresent. Chef-owner Minh Bui is a brilliant chef in a number of ways, but his great talent is his deep understanding both of Vietnamese and Creole flavors. He sees how the two can be combined, using New Orleans ingredients. Fusion dishes are always a little risky, but here they always work perfectly. Beyond that, the chef works at the gourmet level in terms of his raw materials, techniques, and presentations. This is always exciting food. </p><p>Chickie Wah Wahs http://www.chickiewahwah.com/ Known more for great live music (and an excellent name) than food, Chickie Wah Wahs serves pizza, pasta, sandwiches and some vegetarian cuisine. </p><p>http://www.mandinasrestaurant.com/http://www.cafeminh.com/http://www.chickiewahwah.com/</p></li><li><p>7 </p><p>Restaurants along the St. Charles Street Streetcar Line </p><p>Herbsaint http://herbsaint.com/ Chef Donald Links Herbsaint Bar and Restaurant on historic Saint Charles Avenue features an acclaimed menu with French and Italian-inspired, yet distinctive Southern dishes and a dynamic wine list in a modern bistro setting. </p><p>Emerils Delmonico http://www.emerils.com/restaurant/3/Emerils-Delmonico/ </p><p>Emeril's Creole steakhouse is housed in an historic century-old building where locals and tourists mingle amidst an atmosphere of Big Easy glamour and hospitality. </p><p>Voodoo Barbeque http://www.voodoobbq.com/ Serves up classic barbecue (pulled pork, beef brisket and pork ribs) and sides such as corn pudding and Gris Gris Greens, slow-cooked, Southern-style mustard greens. </p><p>Vincents http://www.vincentsitaliancuisine.com/ Vincent's is located in the Uptown area of New Orleans in the heart of the Riverbend. We have been serving the New Orleans area for 20 years and continue to serve the the finest ingredients at a reasonable price. Vincent's has been voted "Best Italian Restaurant" for 10 years in a row by multiple publications. The menu is considered to be Creole Italian which consist of Italian food with a New Orleans Twist. We serve your all your Italian favorites from homemade pasta's to Osso Bucco along with many classic New Orleans dishes such as Blackened Redfish, Seafood Stuffed Porkchop, Veal Chop, Stuffed Shrimp in Pastry, Herb Crusted Salmon and Crabcakes. If youre looking for a cozy neighborhood restaurant with great food and service, Vincent's is the place. </p><p>Delachaise http://www.thedelachaise.com/ The Delachaise is the local granddaddy of serious after-hours dining, and the fact that it has been open only since 2003 speaks volumes about how long it has taken for that particular genre to build up steam in New Orleans. Youll get your fill of cheese (served at proper temperature, no less) and olives, but the kitchen forges its identity with satisfying, left-of-center dishes that fall outside the parameters of traditional wine bar cuisine: traditional smoked salmon and caviar with Johnny cakes standing in for blinis, shrimp Clemenceau reimagined as Thai curry, f...</p></li></ul>
