New Orleans & Company invites New Orleans residents and nearby visitors to explore their city and support the local restaurant industry by taking advantage of dining options through COOLinary New Orleans, New Orleans & Company’s annual summer campaign. Unlike previous years, the campaign has opened participation to include delivery and take-out options, as well as counter service restaurants. COOLinary encourages locals to experience their hometown more affordably than any other time of year while assisting the businesses that make New Orleans one of the most culturally authentic destinations in the world.
The 16th annual COOLinary New Orleans (August 1- September 13) returns this summer in an updated format, offering special two- and three-course lunch menus for $20 or less and three-course dinner and brunch menus for $39 or less at a variety of restaurants across the city. The campaign showcases inventive menus created by award-winning chefs, highlighting the authentic cuisine of New Orleans.

We hope this is a time where we can rediscover New Orleans’ authentic spirit and fall in love with our hometown again.”
