An entertaining guidebook celebrating the food and people of New Orleans, highlighting nearly 250 eating spots, from sno-cone stands and food carts to famous restaurants.

When Mario Batali was asked his favorite food city, he responded, “New Orleans, hands down.” No city has as many signature dishes, from gumbo and beignets to pralines and po boys, from muffuletta and Oysters Rockefeller to king cake and red beans and rice (every Monday night), all of which draw nearly 9 million hungry tourists to the city each year.

Eat Dat New Orleans is a guidebook that celebrates both New Orleans’s food and its people. It highlights nearly 250 eating spots―sno-cone stands and food carts as well as famous restaurants―and spins tales of the city’s food lore, such as the controversial history of gumbo and the Shakespearean drama of restaurateur Owen Brennan and his heirs.

Both first-time visitors and seasoned travelers will be helped by a series of appendixes that list restaurants by cuisine, culinary classes and tours, food festivals, and indispensable “best of” lists chosen by an A-list of the city’s food writers and media personalities, including Poppy Tooker, Lolis Eric Elie, Ian McNulty, Sara Roahen, Marcelle Bienvenu, Amy C. Sins, and Liz Williams.

Review:

Library JournalMurphy has written an engaging history of more than 200 New Orleans restaurants. Through readable, appealing profiles, the author depicts the food culture of the city. Interspersed throughout are single pages devoted to products or foods such as Barq's Root Beer or hot sauces. Finally, several appendixes list the ratings of the restaurants by a panel of New Orleans food experts. VERDICT A great read for travelers planning to eat in New Orleans or those interested in a special city and its food.--Christine E. Bulson
