Toups Meatery in Mid-City serves modern Creole food with a strong focus on all things meat. Foie gras, wagyu steaks, and chicken confit are all on the menu, along with local staples like boudin balls and plenty of Gulf seafood. If you’re with a group and want to do it right, start with one of their cocktail pitchers and the Meatery Board, which includes a variety of house-made fresh and cured meats. If you don’t feel like making the trip to the original, Toups South is located just west of downtown and serves delicious things like fried chicken and goat tamales, along with many of the Meatery’s greatest hits as well.

Jacques-Imo’s in Uptown is part-restaurant, part-party, and one place in New Orleans that could never exist anywhere else.
When you want a taste of true, classic New Orleans, grab lunch and 25 cent martinis at Commander’s Palace in the Garden District.
Cane & Table
Cane & Table is either a restaurant with excellent drinks, or a cocktail bar with great food. Either way, it’s one of the best escapes in the Quarter.
Suggested by our writers
Galatoire’s is an old school spot in the French Quarter known for tuxedo-clad servers, classic Creole food, and their very boozy Friday lunch.
The wood-fired oysters at Cochon are one of the single best things you can eat in New Orleans, and their cocktails are pretty good, too.
Next door to the restaurant is Cochon Butcher, which is way more casual than its neighbor, but still serves great sandwiches and drinks.
