New Orleans is a city famous for letting the good times roll, and the culinary scene is one that must not be missed! Recently voted the top City for Food in the U.S., The Big Easy, birthplace of the cocktail, is also where historic cafés feature the best Cajun and Creole cuisine. With so many can’t-miss dishes and drinks, we’ve rounded up our favorites to get you started.
Chef Johnny Iuzzini travelled to New Orleans, in partnership with Le Méridien Hotels & Resorts, on a mission to create exclusive éclair recipes inspired by destinations around the globe. The distinct flavors of the Big Easy inspired Chef Iuzzini to create a Coffee-Chicory Eclair, Sassafras, Pimenton, Botanicals and Pecan Pralines. Discover more through #LMeclairs.
New Orleans can boast that it has been a world center for music, culture and cuisine for 300 years, and things may even have picked up in recent years. The burgeoning music and restaurant scene in up-and-coming neighborhoods like Faubourg Marigny and the Bywater are pulling visitors out of the historic French Quarter. Despite the Big Easy’s devil-may-care reputation, attractions like the Audubon Aquarium and City Park are plenty family-friendly. Don't miss the excitement of the city's Tricentennial this year. Celebrate by creating your own "One Time in New Orleans" experience with a weekend getaway to top attractions.
