One of the big draws of New Orleans is the amazing local cuisine. I obviously ate a ton and left no calories to spare so had to share some highlights of all the fabulous food I tried, so if you ever go, make sure to check these places out. I promise you won’t be disappointed since all our food choices were curated by tried and true NOLA veterans. Just seeing it all again makes me hungry – hope you have a snack handy!
