We are SO excited to head back to New Orleans this weekend for the Rock n Roll New Orleans Half Marathon. This will be our first trip back to the Big Easy since we said I do there a few months ago!
Root New Orleans
Willie Mae's Scotch House
Cochon Butcher and traditional at Central Grocery. Both places always have lines out the door. If we go to Cafe du Monde for breakfast, we typically walk across the street to Central Grocery to get a muffulatta to go, saving it for lunch or dinner later that night. Cochon Butcher serves their sandwich hot, which takes on a whole different flavor.
J's Seafood Dock, Acme Oyster House, Tableau, Red Fish Grill just to name a few. I strongly suggest getting crawfish and oysters while in town.
Do not think about coming to NOLA without getting Beignets at Cafe du Monde. Light fluffy deep fried pillows covered with powdered sugar - enough said.

Oak Alley Plantation holds a special place for us, as we had our engagement photos done there. They also have an amazing restaurant and mean mint juleps. I have a cookbook from their restaurant and I love making their signature dishes!
Steamboat Natchez. It was a great experience, amazing food and live jazz.
