Dining in New Orleans

It's been some time since I spent my spring break in New Orleans, and it was only recently that I found some of the pictures that I took during that foodie trip. Unfortunately, with my bad memory, I no longer remember the names of the dishes that I ordered, nor the restaurants that I ate them in. Whatever notes I may have scribbled on scraps of paper have also been lost. This is all too bad, because New Orleans is seriously a great city in which to be dining.

The food I ate in all the restaurants was excellent, with the exception of some blackened catfish I had in one place (the name of which I can't remember, of course) that was too salty. Here are some of the dishes I had in that city, which I will always think of as a slice of food heaven.

This is a simple mushroom omelet I had for breakfast one lazy sunny morning, when I just wanted to sit to have a leisurely meal and lots of coffee at a hotel lobby.

I ordered the following dishes in the first restaurant I went to when I arrived in the city. It was a great way to start my trip, and a good preview of meals to come.

Blackened salmon

Crab salad

Crab cakes

Hi Ruvee, I would love to go back to New Orleans. I did not have time to eat in all the restaurants on my list when I went there. Hopefully next time I will be able to stay longer. I will look for W Hotel and try your seared scallops. I love scallops!

Unfortunately I do not eat reptiles, so I will not be able to try the city's famed alligator dishes.

Thanks for dropping by!
