Eating Our Way Through New Orleans

The people of New Orleans take their food seriously.  They love food. They love to eat. They love to fry. And when it comes to frying, they do it better than anyone! It is just as easy to eat your way through New Orleans as it is to drink your way through it. And eat our way through it, we did!  Here are some food highlights.
