More Louisiana Restaurants
Let the soul of Louisiana reveal itself to you as you dine. Trying Louisiana’s fabulous cuisine is one of the greatest pleasures that the state offers. Each meal, including breakfasts that often include ice cream for dessert, is meant to be savored. Exotic Cajun and Creole flavors prevail. Po Boy sandwiches, tasty crawfish, jambalayas (spicy rice with chicken or meat) and hearty gumbos are just a few of the treats that await. Of course, you can begin the meal with a special Louisiana cocktail. Ramos Gin Fizz, a Sazerac or a Hurricane are the way the locals go.
If you have a sweet tooth, beignets (Louisiana’s version of doughnuts), pralines and bread pudding only touch the surface of the decadent sweets you can enjoy. Sign up for a one day cooking class to learn how to bring Louisiana flavors back home. Excess and indulgence never felt this good!
