Top Places to Eat/Drink in New Orleans
A few weeks ago, I visited home (New Orleans) for a little rest and relaxation. I re-visited a few of my favorite places, and wanted to share with you my list of my spots. I usually email this list to friends who are taking weekend trips and ask me for recommendations. Below are my favorite places to dine. It's safe to say that through my 4 years of living in the city, and my entire life living in the suburbs, I've been to more than I can keep track of! These are the places I miss the most and would definitely recommend trying if you're ever in the city.
