Dining
where to eat

CAFE DU MONDE
Nothing says New Orleans like beignets! Be sure to enjoy these with a fresh cup of cafe au lait for a daytime - or late night - snack.

COMMANDER'S PALACE
Nestled in the middle of the Garden District, this restaurant has been a New Orleans landmark since 1880. A steady parade of renowned chefs like Emeril Lagasse, Paul Prudhomme, Jamie Shannon, and now Tory McPhail have made Commander's Palace the world-class restaurant it is today and its leading-edge Haute Creole cuisine reflects quintessential New Orleans at its best. Can't miss items include the Pecan Crusted fish and bread pudding souffle!

MURIEL'S
In the heart of the French quarter, this restaurant presents classic Creole fare in a 19th-century building with old-world elegance. Be sure to check out the seance room and balcony upstairs!

RESTAURANT REVOLUTION
Nestled in the Royal Sonesta Hotel, Restaurant revolution offers modern, imaginative reinterpretations of classic Cajun and Creole cuisine. The ambiance is to die for, making it perfect for dinner.

SOBOU
Located inside the W French Quarter Hotel, this eatery & lounge serves elevated Creole bar food, plus cocktails & self-serve wine. Who can beat that? Perfect for daytime small plates and cocktails - be sure to order the sweet potato beignets and Sobou Burger!
