Commander’s Palace Restaurant

This venue, with its ironic architecture, will provide you with a quintessential New Orleans dining experience. Serving traditional creole food, loved by locals and visitors alike. This is a more expensive place that expects you to dress up a bit but it is well worth it! Commander’s is recognised by James Beard’s awards for food and service as well as winning the Wine Spectator’s Grand Award. Enjoy the combination of the owner’s, the Brennan family, brand of Southern hospitality combined with the exemplary chefs they hire to create the fantastic food.


Head to the Warehouse District for fine dining-levels of quality but a charmingly casual atmosphere: Meril. Chef Emeril Lagasse’s newest restaurant in New Orleans, Meril’s laidback restaurant- evidenced by the classic open style kitchen and, of course, large bar area- is a great place to try a range of cuisine. This restaurant was created for Chef Lagasse to showcase and share all of his favourite food in one place, featuring an array of geography and style with Wood Fired Flatbreads, Gulf Fish Tacos, Korean Chicken Wings and Fettuccine Nero. This chef wants to share his love further by offering meal kits and cocktail how-to’s so you can even have a go at making some of this at home.
