Food Scene
A quick list of required New Orleans food to try during your stay
Within walking distance. Go to the seafood line and order a couple pounds of crawfish. Don't forget to add in a couple of corn and potatoes to your order! Their crawfish boudin is amazing (not true of the pork). Grab a beer to drink while you wait for your order. Once you have your order, walk home and enjoy it on the porch using our crawfish table!

A New Orleans staple - fried dough and all the powdered surgar your bag will hold. Stop by at night when the line is quiet. Order to go and eat them up on a bench along the riverwalk. Cash only!

Some of the most amazing fried chicken you will ever eat. You may find its equal. You will not find its superior. Expect a 1-2 hour wait in line.

Order the roast beef po-boy. Sit in the restaurant, or take them to go. You can sit and eat them along the canal, or walk a bit farther to enjoy them in our beautify City Park (designed by the same man responsible for New York's Central Park)

Share a bottle of wine with your friends while listening to some of New Orlean's best local artists play live. A bit out of the way, this lovely outdoor bar has a large selection of wine and cheeseplates as well as cocktails and a few menue items. It can get busy, so we suggest going on weeknights or early in the afternoons.

Sip a hurricane (required drink if you go here) and listen to live piano music indoors, or sit outside and enjoy the lighted fountain. Pat O'Brien's is at the end of Bourbon and a great way to escape the insanity.

This circular bar slowly rotates (hense the name) and offers some of the best cocktails in the city. Sip a Sazerac (a New Orleans creation) and listen to the live entertainment available in the evenings.

This place does not offer entertainment, however you can walk around Jackson square as you drink. The Irish iced coffee is a requirement and the only reason to go here.

Elizabeth's is an excellent spot for local New Orleans brunch or breakfast. When you're done, walk accross the street to Crescent City Park. It's hidden from the street view, but allows you a beautiful walk along the river. It ends just before the French Market and Frenchmen Street.

The National WWII Museum is the top-rated tourist destination in New Orleans and #2 in the U.S., and an unforgettable way to experience World War II—from industrial efforts on the home front to the combat experience of the American servicemember abroad. An all-day experience, this is an excellent adventure for a rainy day.

A vibrant space filled with performance artitists, fortune tellers, and musicians. This is the best spot in the city to pick up some local art as a momento for your trip. We recommend pairing this with a trip to Molly's for a frozen Irish coffee or Cafe du Monde which is across the street.

A bustling open market of various nick nacks. If you plant to buy anything, this is a great time to barter. Most items are marked far higher than vendors expect to sell them for. Although it may be tempting, please don't purchase food or drink here. The quality is far better once you cross the street into the city.

City advice

Customs & culture
Pin a dollar on your shirt for birthdays
It is customary for people to pin dollar bills to the front of someone's shirt on their birthday. Usually friends or family members pin the first few dollars. Occationally a stranger may be willing to add to your collection. If nothing else, you will have many people wish you a "happy birthday"
Getting around
Never uber directly to/from Bourbon or Frenchment St.
When going to the french quarter, it is recommended to simply walk a couple of blocks instead of having a car take you directly to/from either Bourbon or Frenchmen St. You'll save time, money, and sanity by avoiding these streets in a car.
Customs & culture
Respect and Enjoy the Second Lines
Our home is located directly on one of the main community second line routes. These typically occurr on Sundays. If you walk outside and find the streets are filled with food, drinks, families, and fun, feel free to join in. Respect that many people are there to bond with their community members - this is not a tourist experience. However, you are welcome to join in the fun. You may come across second lines in other parts of town. If it is for a wedding, hop on in and start dancing. If it is for a funeral, please stand by and respect those in mourning.
Customs & culture
Mardi Gras Custums
Many families have designated spots that they stake out for specific Mardi Gras parades. They may start to bring their tarps, chairs, and ladders a couple days in advance of a parade. Please do not force yourself into their space. Politely walk farther down the street until you find a space without a tarp or watch from farther back.
