    omg, I love shrimp and grits, too, so I totally made a shrimp and grits list for my latest trip to NOLA! I was only able to make it to two of the spots on the list during my weekend trip (one of which I went to twice!), but I will gladly share my list of top-rated shrimp and grits spots that I found through Googling and Yelp searches.

    The restaurant that I went to twice, once for shrimp and grits and once just for the cheese grits is Surrey's Juice Bar, which is like a hip yet very casual Southern diner that has two locations. The shrimp and grits were perfection! The other one that I went to was Luke Restaurant, which is a very, very popular restaurant that's more on the fancy side. Personally, their shrimp and grits was a tad saltier than I would've liked, but it was worth trying and they have great southern cocktails and other fantastic dishes as well.

    Here are the other restaurants on my radar for shrimp and grits:

    I know the list is overwhelming, but if it's any help, the first nine are widely considered to be the must-go restaurants of NOLA in general, plus Surrey's and Luke.

    Bon appetite! :)
