The Best of New Orleans, Louisiana
Much like it's multicultural architecture, NO is also bursting with different cooking styles and a vibrant restaurant scene, but it is more famously known for it's Louisiana (LA) Creole cooking. Most of us, including myself, have heard the term before without knowing what it means. LA Creole is a style of cooking inspired by French, Spanish, German, Portuguese, Greek, Italian, Irish, Indian, Canarian (of the Canari Islands), West African, Caribbean, Latin American and Amerindian cuisine, reflecting the population of NO at the time, before its sale to the USA in 1803. With all the history on the infamous street, it's no surprise that Galatoires has had a Bourbon St address since 1905.
