As New Orleans reopens, it means that restaurants are once again able to welcome diners back into their dining rooms and patios. There are, of course, some restrictions and guidelines in place to keep everyone safe, including reduced capacity, reservations (or the gathering of contact information), and recommendations around mask usage. You can find additional information about the guidelines here.
Enjoying meals in restaurants is certainly one of the most cherished experiences one can have in New Orleans, and while it’s exciting to return to our favorite places, it’s also important to remember that restaurants are operating in a very new landscape and learning how to adapt during this critical time. Therefore, days and hours of operation, menu items and the availability of reservations are all subject to change–we recommend calling ahead with any questions and, as always, being patient as everyone from customers to restaurants owners and staff become acclimated to the new procedures.
Below you’ll find the list of restaurants open now for dine-in service. Be sure to check back frequently, as this is sure to grow in the coming days and weeks.
