Liuzza's By the Track
Famous BBQ shrimp po-boys and other classics
Casual breakfast and brunch spot
They serve a mean breakfast sandwich and you can't come here without getting an order of their aebleskivers. Expect to wait on weekends, but you can grab a bloody mary at Jockey's next door while you wait. They also have locations in the French Quarter and Uptown.
Robert Bache III
Vintage items by Black artists and designers
This cozy store features a curated selection of art, books, clothing, home goods and other new and vintage items by Black artists and designers. Not only is Carla the sweetest woman, she also has a clear passion for what she is doing, which shows throughout her shop. She also manages to track down some rare pieces, so comb through all her treasures carefully. When you are finished here, be sure to check out the rest of Bayou Road.
Bullet's Sports Bar
Fun dive with live music most nights
This popular hole in the wall is the spot to see great local brass and jazz bands. This hidden gem is filled mostly with neighborhood regulars with a few well informed visitors who love good music and a good time. Treme Brass Band plays here every Wednesday for a show that you won't want to miss.
McHardy’s Chicken & Fixin’
Peppery fried chicken for takeout
Don't be fooled by their low prices, this welcoming spot serves up some of the best, if not the best fried chicken in the city. Pair your dark, peppery fried chicken with some of their sides. Fried okra, mac & cheese, and red beans and rice are some fan favorites. It can get really crowded during peak hours, but you can call ahead to make an order.
Intimate French bistro with a tree growing through it
This New Orleans institution, just down the street from where Edgar Degas stayed during his months in the city, serves French cuisine in a dining room that has a pecan tree growing through it. This romantic spot serves up all the French classics beautifully, including the escargot and French onion soup. Reservations are recommended.
