No place loves its food quite as devotedly — or as indulgently — as New Orleans. Some people eat to live, but New Orleanians live to eat. As a result, the city offers one of the most incredible — and incredibly diverse — concentrations of exceptional dining and unforgettable cuisine in the world. The menu ranges through classic Louisiana cuisine such as roast duck to the celebrated Cajun specialties of crawfish etouffee, jambalaya, muffulettas, beignets, gumbo, po’boys and that humble staple, red beans and rice. For an overview, check out the new home of the Southern Food and Beverage Museum (SoFAB) in the old Dryades Street Market in uptown New Orleans’ Central City Historic District. There you’ll find the Museum of the American Cocktail, the Galerie d’Absinthe, cooking demonstrations by famed chefs and special exhibits: www.southernfood.org.
