New Orleans’s Best Outdoor Dining Spots
Outdoor dining spaces have become increasingly popular over the past few years, but New Orleans’s restaurant scene already boasted plenty of al fresco options—in courtyards, patios, and sidewalk spaces. Some restaurants took the opportunity to expand or add to their space, adapting it for a longer season with shade coverings, misters, and heaters. Thankfully, there are more options than ever to enjoy a meal under New Orleans’s sunny or moonlit skies. Here are 12 possibilities, some casual, a few fancy, but each one offering the chance to take a delicious break from the ordinary.
Celebrate your special occasions at these top 13 New Orleans restaurants
New Orleanians tend to mark time by food seasons rather than the standard calendar flip. The hottest months belong to frozen daiquiris and technicolor snoballs. Spring brings families and friends together over spicy spreads of boiled crawfish. In a city that puts food and drink at the center of its life and not just the center of the table, eating and drinking is always a special occasion. When it comes to celebrating a birthday, graduation, or just feeling alive in the Big Easy, the stage is set with buckets of seafood, cocktails shaken and stirred in James Beard Award-winning bars, and grand dining rooms that have hosted generations of milestone events and special occasions. These are the 15 best restaurants to book across the Crescent City for many different celebrations.
