From October 6-10, NI’s food and wine editor, Mark Spivak, led vacationing foodies on a culinary tour of New Orleans. Delicious stops on the itinerary included Galatoire’s and the Acme Oyster House for po’ boys. Luckily, he updated us along the way. Here, Spivak dishes on the ingredients that make up a fabulous culinary tour through the Big Easy.
The Sazerac Bar
One of the country’s great bars, the Sazerac serves world-class cocktails in stunning surroundings.
A pair of chefs with widely divergent backgrounds have teamed up to kick the New Orleans restaurant scene up a notch with R’evolution.
Since 1905, Galatoire’s has been delighting foodies with their impeccable roll call of Creole classics, backed up by a wine list heavy on Burgundy.
The Acme Oyster House
Opened in 1910, the Acme Oyster House on Bourbon Street is packed from open to close.
