2014 New Orleans Dining METRO EXPLORER EDITION: A Guide for the Hungry Visitor Craving an Authentic Experience by Steven Wells Hicks

Most visitors to New Orleans, whether they're in the city on business or for a little well-deserved playtime, don't wander too far from the French Quarter or the downtown hotels. That's a shame, really, because outside the "Visitors District" are some of the Crescent City's finest restaurants, coziest bistros, historic saloons and eateries that are as casual as they are eccentric.

Now there's a guide that's been written for the mobile visitor about to discover that in New Orleans there's always something interesting just down the road. Focused totally on cafés and restaurants beyond the Visitors District, New Orleans Dining is designed for the adventurous food lover willing to go the extra mile to discover what makes New Orleans one of America's premier culinary playgrounds.

For nearly forty years, the city has been the home away from home for novelist and epicurean essayist Steven Wells Hicks and in all that time he's taken notes, taken names and now he's kicking butt. Inside this fourth edition of his best-selling New Orleans guidebooks, visitors will find everything from white tablecloth places to six-napkin poor-boy joints, all expressly written for the visiting food lover with more taste than time. Some of the restaurants are famous, some not and some are even called out as the tourist traps they are. Candid, curmudgeonly, occasionally flippant yet always thought-provoking, the book's leisurely essays covering more than three dozen intriguing restaurants are designed to steer guests toward the city's best...and away from the rest.
