The city of New Orleans in Louisiana is renowned for its parties, music and of course, its food. From dishes like gumbo and jambalaya to its famous turtle soup, the Big Easy is quite the culinary delight for visitors from all over the world.
It is not just the classic New Orleans dishes grabbing the attention of foodies though - new restaurants are popping up all over the city, offering that extra something that is attracting food lovers from across the globe. While dishes such as gumbo and turtle soup are still prevalent, there are a handful of restaurants marking their territory and paving the way for new food trends in the city.
Restaurants such as Serendipity, that recently opened up on Orleans Avenue, are attempting to bring food from around the world to the tables of New Orleans. Chris de Barr, head chef at Serendipity, has brought food from Japan, Italy, Malaysia and Greece to his restaurant in the Big Easy. Serendipity is just one of the many restaurants around town setting the standard for new cuisine in the city.
R’evolution is another restaurant that has recently set up shop in New Orleans, this time in the more upmarket part of the city. Bienville and the area surrounding it is packed with great restaurants full of traditional New Orleans food but R’evolution is determined to put its stamp on the area. You can expect a completely different dining experience at R’evolution, with a menu of staple New Orleans dishes that all have a modern twist, to bring the food up to date with the ever-advancing world of gastronomy.
