New Orleans, LA

What To Do

Bourbon Street Experience

No explanation needed. Just be safe and know your limits.

What I Ate

Pat O’ Briens – @patobriens

Very cool atmosphere with a nice courtyard for dining. The hurricane is the popular choice here. I’m not a fan of the overly sugary drinks but this one isn’t that bad. Food is decent, gonna need multiple visits to test more options.

Cafe Du Monde – @cafedumonde

Located in the French Market, this is a very touristy attraction. The line is likely to be long and in my opinion not worth the hype. Nothing special about the actual beignets, seems to be more of an experience for the mess you’ll make.

Deanie’s Seafood – @deaniesseafood

This is your place to go if you are looking for a healthy helping of fried goodness. I ordered the HALF Seafood Platter (soft shell crab on top, shrimp, catfish, and crawfish balls).. yes what you see is a half order.

Acme Oyster House – @acmeosyter

Another popular tourist spot. Doesn’t matter what time of day you go, be prepared to stand in line. The popular dish is the chargrilled oyster platter. I’ve never been a fan of oysters but these are very good. Be sure to try them with the variety of tabasco sauces offered.

Other Places To Check Out

Big Easy Daquiris – more sugary drinks

Dat Dog – creative hot dogs with flavor

We Dat Chicken and Shrimp – very flavorful wings

The Swamp – cool club with indoor/outdoor vibes

Stanley – cool breakfast spot
