I’m finally getting around to finishing this post about our food experiences on our recent trip to New Orleans. There are SO MANY fabulous restaurants there. It is a foodie’s dream world. Below are pictures of some of the great meals we enjoyed.
Enchiladas and a margarita at Maggie Rita’s on Magazine. This restaurant happens to be across the street from our condo and therefore a convenient place for our first meal in New Orleans following a long drive.

Another restaurant I’d been dying to try is Galatoire’s. The 100+ year old restaurant has quite a reputation but since they require men to wear a coat and tie, we had not previously been there. We usually fly and David doesn’t bring his suit. This time, since we were driving, I figured it was the perfect time to pack the suit and give it a try. It did not disappoint. I could feel the history of the place as I sat at our linen covered table, eating with sterling silver utensils and gazing about the lovely dining room.

This last photo wasn’t taken in New Orleans but at the Shreveport location of Ralph and Kacoo’s. We ate there on our way home. I had the grilled fish over crabmeat stuffing topped with crab and hollandaise sauce.
