Looking for some of the best restaurants in New Orleans to visit during Sage Summit that will take you away from it all?
Whether you are getting in early, staying late after the conference, or just want to get away during the conference, I’ve researched the best rated restaurants in New Orleans that you might want to give a try.
Cochon Butcher – Yes, it’s a butcher shop that serves sandwiches. Seriously, though – 4.5 stars has got to be worth trying out. They are open from 10AM to 10PM. People rave about the Duck Pastrami Slider, the Hot Dog “all in” and the Buckboard Bacon Melt. The wait is long but worth it. Price range $$.
Emeril’s New Orleans – Would it be wrong to go to New Orleans and not go to one of Emeril’s restaurants? If you have never been, I highly recommend it based on Emeril’s specialty three-waiter table system which allows for very specialized attention to each table. They are open for lunch 11:30-2:00 PM and for dinner from 6:00 to 10:00 PM. I personally have had the banana cream pie and I have to say – it has ruined all other banana cream pies for me. Other favorites of yelpers are the BBQ Shrimps, the Who Dat Burger, Chicken on Waffles and the BBQ pork chop. Price range $$$.
Luke – If you have a craving for some seafood, perhaps this is the conference get-a-way for you. The Happy Hour special here is 50 cent oysters (yum). French in flair, you will find the Croquet Madame and Monsieur on the menu alongside shrimp étouffée and shrimp and grits. Open from 7:00 AM to 11:00 PM, they focus on breakfast and lunch. Price range is $$.
Restaurant R’evolution – If you are looking for something that will be a high end experience, this may be it: a Cajun/Creole restaurant with a yelp rating of 4.5 stars. Among favorite dishes here are crab beignets, gumbo and scallops. They are open from 5:30-10:00 PM and be prepared to perhaps break the bank – prices are $$$$.
Commander’s Palace – Nestled in the middle of the Garden District, this historic restaurant has been a New Orleans landmark since 1880. Known for the award-winning quality of its food and the steady parade of renowned chefs including Emeril Lagasse, Paul Prudhomme and others, Commander’s Palace is both an excellent restaurant and a historic treasure. The delicious options include crawfish étouffée, turtle soup, Creole gumbo and Creole bread pudding soufflé. The Jazz Brunch is not to be missed if you have a chance. Open 11:30 – 2:00 for lunch Monday-Friday, 6:30 for dinner, and 11:30 Saturday and Sunday for Jazz brunch. Reservations required, and prices are $$$$$.
These are just a few of the special eats that you will be able to find near the convention center—I hope you enjoy trying at least a few.
