An old Mafia roadhouse in a swamp. A fried chicken joint at the heart of an historic ghetto. The Italian grocery where the original muffuletta was created. A 92 year-old neighborhood oyster bar. A vampy, campy greasy spoon. The Creole bistro that stopped the clock a century ago. These and 25 more places make up the second edition of the only guidebook expressly written for the adventurous New Orleans visitor with more taste than time. Written for conventioneers, traveling executives or just folks coming for a playful weekend, this guidebook whittles over 1,000 restaurant choices into more than two dozen establishments where food, service, room and vibes add up to New Orleans experiences as authentic as coffee with chicory or Dixieland jazz. From stylish white tablecloth dining rooms to six-napkin muffuletta dives, "New Orleans Dining" offers in-depth previews of the city's truly homegrown restaurants. Both candid and curmudgeonly, occasionally flippant yet always thoughtful, the book's leisurely essays are designed to steer guests toward the city's best...and away from the rest.
