Seafood | Central Business District, New Orleans

Went here for drinks and appetizers while spending vacation in town. The octopus app was the best we’ve ever had. We also got the anchovy toast and brussel sprouts which were all amazing and very different/unique from lots of the other places in town that we’ve tried. Cocktails were also delicious. Highly recommend trying this place! More

Contemporary American | Warehouse District, New Orleans

My friend and I were staying at the adjacent hotel; this was one of several meals we had at Legacy Kitchen Craft Bar over 4 days. We found the staff to be consistently friendly, courteous, helpful, and efficient. They were respectful of our dietary requirements, and the cook and kitchen staff followed through! Fresh comfort food well-prepared with great flavor and attractive presentation, true for multiple dishes we ordered. Comfortable, low-key vibe. Happy to call Legacy our "home base" place during our visit. More

French | Bywater, New Orleans

An adventure for the senses - on my birthday, nonetheless! My wife and I were lucky enough to enjoy an unforgettable meal and experience at Saint-Germain. Chefs Blake Aguillard and Trey Smith obviously take great care in sharing their inventive creations without an ounce of stuffiness. The front of house staff was friendly and attentive, and the atmosphere was warm, relaxed and intimate. The coursed tasting menu changes periodically, but anything that comes out of this little shotgun will leave you wanting more. They also offer bar fare and a happy hour, which we are excited to check out soon. We can’t wait to return! More

Discover New Orleans

French, Spanish and Creole influences evolved New Orleans cuisine into a genre all its own. Combine Gulf coast seafood, a butter-based sauce and Cajun spices, and you’re looking at a classic Nola dish. Take the famed crawfish boil, for instance, which locals advise is best eaten as a family. In the aftermath of hurricane Katrina, the restaurant industry banded together to support their city in the wake of serious devastation. New restaurants began opening their doors, and today you’ll find a wealth of cuisines that span the classics to modern reinventions to everything in between.
