Barbecue Shrimp

Baked Alaska 

Yellow Wavy Line

Restaurants to try Baked Alaska: You have to get Baked Alaska at Antoine’s! Make sure as soon as you sit down. You put your order in for it because it sells out very quickly! 


Where to get a cup of Gumbo: Nothing is better than homemade gumbo, but if you are out and about, check a bowl of gumbo from High Hat Cafe on Freret Street. 


Yellow Wavy Line

Where to get Muffulattas: Everyone will tell you to try a Muffuletta at Central Grocery – even though theirs are delicious – take a ride out to Metairie and grab a Muffuletta from Nor Joe’s. If you are local or staying somewhere with an oven – ask for the Muffuletta cold and toast it in the oven for a real treat.
