Not to miss places in New Orleans?

Heading to NOLA for Jazzfest in a couple of months. Wondering about any of the beaten path places to visit or eat at. I have been before and seen the main touristy places but I would love some fresh ideas.

Hi Sloan!

Cochon Restaurant is a laid-back restaurant with amazing food - reservations can be hard to come by, but you could get there early and grab a seat at the bar.

If you'll be there on a Friday, check out Restaurant August for lunch, they have a ridiculous prix fixe deal.

If you've been to NOLA before you may have already been to Commander's Palace Restaurant, but it's always a must for me-another great spot for lunch with 25cent martinis!

District Donuts Sliders Brew has killer doughnuts and is a cool spot to grab coffee in the AM, but sliders are also great for lunch.

La Petite Grocery is perfect for a nicer dinner and The Company Burger is a great low-key spot for a burger. 

Tivoli & Lee has an unlimited Bloody Mary bar on the weekends that is great!

Treme - Lafitte is a historic neighborhood to check out and you can grab some authentic fried chicken from Willie Mae's Scotch Houseor Dooky Chase's Restaurant while you're there!


I was just in New Orleans at the end of February and had a blast, enjoy Jazz Fest!

addendum to previous answer.  If you are not renting a car, use the street car to go to la Madeleine.  It stops at the front door.  also, purchase a pass for the street cars instead of paying every time.  it is cheaper and more convenient.  You can purchase these at several places.  we get ours at Walgreens.

Take a stroll down Magazine Street starting around Washington Ave or further uptown depending on how much walking you enjoy. Stop at Bouligny Tavern for some small plates and delicious drinks. Then continue to Le Bon Temps Roule which is where you'll find the locals hanging out (especially on Thursday night when the Soul Rebels do their weekly set).

Went to Jazz Fest a few years ago.  Had a wonderful time.  Visit New Orleans once a year for past 10 years. A not to miss place is the famous Café du Monde. Enjoy street music in the outdoor cafe and their beignets.  For music go to Frenchmen Street-http://frenchmenstreetlive.com/  

For a wonderful breakfast try la Madeleinehttp://lamadeleine.com/. To get there, travel all the way down St. Charles avenue to the corner of Carrollton. Worth the drive. Hope this helps. Enjoy, nothing like NOLA.
