People in New Orleans are so fascinated with food that even while having lunch, they probably will be talking about dinner. Just ask locals where you might get the finest gumbo, and you probably will witness a quite dramatic debate among the city’s natives about the best place to order gumbo. Well, you might also say that food brings New Orleans together.
The various menus of New Orleans’s quality restaurants reveal the historical past and all the great cultures that have led to this fantastic culinary melting pot over the past three hundred years. You won’t have any trouble in discovering French, African, Spanish, German, Italian, and Caribbean influences in the city’s signature dishes, and the last few years we have seen an increased influence from Asia and Latin America. While walking through the Garden District these days may feel like wandering through times gone by, the neighborhood, and particularly Magazine Street, is also a thriving commercial community.
Here are the most affordable restaurants in the Garden District:
1514 Delachaise Street, New Orleans, LA 70115, 504-891-9361
