New Orleans' varied neighborhoods and ethnic influences offer a wide variety of dining experiences for even the most seasoned connoisseurs. Whether you're looking for a quiet night out or some zydeco or Dixieland with your meal, crawfish etouffee, barbecue shrimp, or a fat Italian muffuletta, this guide has a recommendation for you.
Inside you'll find New Orleans' top 200 restaurants rated and ranked. In-depth profiles of each restaurant reflect the expertise of Tom Fitzmorris, an acknowledged culinary expert and critic. A full page is devoted to each establishment, and the reviews discuss each restaurant's best dishes, atmosphere, and service. You'll also find easy-to-read ratings for quality and value, restaurants indexed by cuisine, quality, value, and location, hours, reservation, credit card, dress, and parking information, recommendations for what to order, and what not to order, a favorite-picks section that tells you where to find the "Best Burgers, " "Best Desserts," "Best Delis," and more.

Tom Fitzmorris is New Orleans' foremost restaurant critic. His first reviews of the dining scene appeared in 1972, when he was still a student at the University of New Orleans; they have continued on at least a weekly basis ever since. He is the host of a long-running daily talk show called the "Food Show" on WSMB 1350 AM. In addition to numerous restaurant guides, Tom is also the author of several cookbooks.
Brigsten¿s¿Frank and Marna Brigsten are the most illustrious graduates of the hot era at K-Paul¿s. They opened their restaurant about a decade ago, and from that day to this they¿ve kept all the little rooms in it filled with happy eaters. The style is very Creole, but with a freshness and imagination that grabs you not only in your mouth but in your mind. It¿s always agony to decide what to order here, because so many dishes sound irresistible. Because the menu changes every day and because the chef loves to experiment, you¿ll find quite a few foods here you¿ve never heard of before¿along with a predominance of more common eats. The service staff treats you like a live-in guest. The wine list is short but good and attractively priced.
