Top 5 Restaurants in New Orleans

  • Dooky Chase's Restaurant sign in New Orleans — American Butler Dooky Chase's Restaurant

What began as a modest sandwich shop and lottery corner has transformed into a local civil rights organization.

After store owners Lee Chase and her husband Dooky inherited their father's store, Dooky Chase became one of the first African-American restaurants in America.

The walls here are adorned with art by African-American artists, and Chef Chase regularly visits with old and new guests. If you don't have a New Orleans mom to make you gumbo, Chef Chase is a culinary foster mother you'll surely adore.

In addition to the legacy brought by the visits of Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, as well as a long list of high-profile celebrities, you will find the best Creole food here. It is not for nothing that the institution has earned itself the nickname "Queen of Creole cuisine".

  • Emeril's New Orleans

For newcomers to New Orleans, a stop at the flagship location of the "Father of New Orleans Cuisine" is a must.

Emeril's is a world class restaurant founded by renowned chef Emeril Lagasse. Chef Lagasse's passion for culinary arts began when he was young and watched his mother cook. He began to travel and cook French dishes.

Now he has restaurants all over the US, but his favorite location is New Orleans. Emeril's in the city center was named "Restaurant of the Year" by Esquire. Chef Lagasse received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the South Beach Wine & Food Festival.

There are always seductive flavors on the menu, highlighting the cooking style of the famous restaurant.

Try dishes such as fried fish from the bay and local vegetables or shellfish with crayfish, and add the signature banana pie to your meal.

  • Herbsaint

Eighteen years and two James Beard Awards later, chef Donald Link, owner of the rustic restaurant, is still actively working on the concept of a French-Southern flagship restaurant.

With the freshest local ingredients, Herbsaint was one of the pioneers of the modern farm-to-table movement.

The dining room, located in the business district, looks casual and democratic, has simple lighting and unpretentious wooden furniture, but it is here that you can taste the best dishes of the city's cuisine.

Sample elegant casual Creole dishes such as duck leg with brown rice and citrus, Louisiana prawns and fish with cucumbers and pepitas seeds.

It's a cozy dining room, and the staff move around the tables with ballet grace. The staff know the menu and wine selection very well, so feel free to chat about the dishes.

  • Compere Lapin

Not all local traditions start at the source. Chef Nina Compton was born and raised between St. Lucia and London. However, the former Top Chef contestant is one of the brightest new faces in the New Orleans kitchen scene.

Drawing on her Caribbean roots, she seamlessly fuses tropical flavors with classic Creole flavors to create something completely inventive. It's no surprise that she won the 2018 James Beard Award for Best Chef in the South.

A menu full of personality, colorful dishes that gently irritate the taste buds while offering soothing sets of familiar flavors. Despite modern technology, there is also comfort here, allowing you to enjoy delicious food and communication. Joy in food - isn't that the whole point?

  • Muriel's Jackson Square

Muriel's Jackson Square is located in a building that served as a home from the 1800s until the beginning of the new millennium. Along with the history of this place, there is one unique feature that makes the establishment stand out from other restaurants.

A large menu of regional dishes includes etufe crayfish, gumbo and jambalaya, fish and nuts and grilled shrimp.
