New Orleans Dining ~ March 2017: One Month, 21 Restaurants

Amuse-Bouche @ Herbsaint

Oops, we did it again. Yep, one whole month of the downright orgiastic indulgence that is also known as New Orleans dining. Truth is, we spent thirty-four days in the Crescent City and squeezed in closer to thirty restaurants, but we only considered our photos from twenty-one of the joints to be share-worthy. In addition to those included in our list below, keep in mind while visiting New Orleans these far more than respectable eateries that our photos failed to do justice: Killer PoBoys, Tal’s Hummus, La Mansion, ¡El Libre!, Mister Gregory’s, Ray’s on the Avenue and the multiple food purveyors of St. Roch Market at 2381 St. Claude Avenue. Enjoy! ~I♥DM
