Our Friends’ and Family’s Fave Restaurants: New Orleans

fullsizeoutput_3b5e.jpeg

I saw on Facebook recently where a friend was asking for dinner recommendations for New Orleans.  I didn’t even respond, because there ARE SO MANY GOOD PLACES! So, you definitely have to narrow it down to neighborhood and your choice of cuisine.

I did a similar post here on Dallas and one of Highway 30-A here.  I got such a good response, that I thought I would do a post with two of my favorite people, Kyle and Rachel, who are the ultimate go-to couple for the best NOLA cuisine.

Obviously, all four of us agree we LOVE all of the restaurants by Alon Shaya.  Above and below, the four of us are eating at his latest venture, Saba. IMG_2512.JPGIMG_2514.JPGIMG_2515.JPGIMG_2517.JPG
