Gulf to Table New Orleans

New Orleans chefs and restauranteurs tell the story of Gulf to table cuisine in the Crescent City.

Not long ago, there was a scientific study that ranked Louisiana as the nation’s happiest state. Many reasons likely led to this distinction, but we’re pretty sure our incredible Louisiana cuisine played a role. Bite into a beignet and see if a smile doesn’t break out.

Here, we don’t just eat. We dine with gusto. Our foods connect us to our diverse heritage, one that includes French, Spanish, African, and German influences. It is over a meal that we come together in celebration, whether it’s a Mardi Gras gumbo or simply a Friday night crawfish boil.

We’d love for you to join in our fun, so we’ve created eight culinary trails that cover the entire state. Use our helpful site to find quintessential Louisiana flavors, such as our famous boudin. With fine dining establishments, mom-and-pop diners, and everything in between, there are stops for every budget. As you explore, you’ll also meet the people behind these great dishes, people like Chris McMillian, one of New Orleans’ best bartenders. And for every trail you’ll find suggestions for culinary experiences to take your trip to a new level.
