Welcome to New Orleans!
That's a phrase I heard over and over again when I first moved down here; now, it falls naturally out of my mouth when I encounter someone visiting what has come to be "my" home town. We will have a LOT of visitors to our city over the next few months, with various sporting events, Mardi Gras, and the usual spring festival calendar.
We've put together a partial list of our favorite restaurants, along with a map of the different neighborhoods of the city. Browse through, and pick a few places to eat, and let us know what you think. Add your own favorites in the comments section.
