21 Best Restaurants in New Orleans
BY PAUL OSWELL
Housed in a relatively anonymous-looking building in the Central Business District, the dining room is disarmingly casual and, as such, feels like a democratic venue to sample some of the city’s best food. You don’t become a well-loved New Orleans restaurant without some degree of homage to the classics, and the dirty rice and chicken, tasso, and andouille gumbo remain as popular as ever. Herbsaint may not have the swagger of some of the city’s more famous restaurants, but this plays to its advantage.
