Throughout the last year many events have brought tourists to New Orleans from the Sugar bowl to the Rock ‘n’ Roll marathon. Mardi Gras events and the Super bowl are on the minds of many Americans and New Orleanians this week.

As I take a trip on the streetcar line, I meet and talk to people from all over the United States. These tourists often remind me of captivated spirit during the first few months of my freshman year. Venturing from the Chicago area to New Orleans, I was amazed by many things including certain places, monuments, and restaurants throughout the city.

New Orleans is well known for the great food and restaurants available here.

The Food Network has a plethora of shows combining tourism and great restaurants like Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives hosted by Guy Fieri. This show inspired me and my family to visit the featured restaurants.

At the top of my list ranks:

Joey K’s located on Magazine St.

The Old Coffee Pot located on St. Peter Street

Mahoney’s Po-Boy Shop located on Magazine St.

La Pines Café located in Slidell, LA

Katie’s restaurant located on Iberville St.

Surrey’s Café located on Magazine St.

Sammy’s Food Service & Deli located on Elysian Fields Ave.

Parasol’s located on Constance St .

The Joint located on Mazant St.

Every place listed here, I have enjoyed eating and trying different dishes. Guy Fieri gives great recommendations, and I will continue to visit many great restaurants in New Orleans.

What is your favorite place to eat in New Orleans? How did you find it?

    We have enjoyed Café Beignets on Royal St. And we can’t visit New Orleans without going to Central Grocery or Jimmy Buffett’s Margaretaville for the best Nachos in town.
