New Orleans is one of the world's most fascinating cities. Steeped in a history of influences from Europe, the Caribbean, Africa and beyond, it's a brilliant mosaic of culture, food and music. You'll find brimming bowls of gumbo, late nights in jazz clubs, strolls through historic neighborhoods and tantalizing festivals throughout the year. Come down and experience one of America's most culturally and historically rich destinations.
Family recipes that date back 100 years, bread pudding beckoning from a bed of decadent caramel sauce, fresh Redfish topped with jumbo lump crabmeat - if one thing's for sure, it's that food in New Orleans - from gumbo to grits - is a serious affair. In New Orleans, food is an art form and chefs are rock stars. And with more than 1,150 restaurants to choose from, everyone is sure to find meals to make their taste buds sing.
New Orleans restaurateurs and renowned chefs are passionate about their craft, and it shows in their achievements that are rarely, if ever, replicated outside the Crescent City. New Orleans racked up an impressive six James Beard nominations this year, and after your visit you'll understand why.
The city's Creole, Cajun and French signature dishes are just the tip of the menu. While exploring New Orleans' culinary wonders, don't forget to explore the offerings of other cuisines, including Latin, Mediterranean, Asian and Italian fare which infuse traditional preparation with an amazing array of South Louisiana spices, produce and seafood.
Art & Culture
New Orleans' Old World roots have created a strong foundation and long-standing appreciation for the arts. Early residents of the city often traveled back to Europe for musical instruction or training in the visual arts. And operatic performances took place in the city as early as 1796.
Today the scene thrives via countless galleries, performance spaces and museums. But perhaps what sets our cultural institutions apart from other cities is their ability to embody the joie de vivre (joy of life) mentality so prevalent in New Orleans. So whether it is a Ralph Brennan restaurant in the New Orleans Museum of Art or Thursday night musical performances at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, New Orleans' unique culture and love of food, music and fun blends perfectly with our vibrant arts scene creating experiences you can't find anywhere else.
