In New Orleans our cuisine is a part of who we are and what defines the city’s culture. For one week a year, some of the best restaurants in New Orleans offer special discounted prices, so you can fully experience all the cuisine that makes this city so special.
During this weeklong celebration of New Orleans food sponsored by Louisiana Restaurant Association's Greater New Orleans Chapter, participating restaurants throughout the New Orleans metro area offer special fixed-price menus, giving diners the opportunity to try items at about 25 percent off the regular price.
Participating restaurants range from fine dining establishments in the French Quarter and downtown New Orleans to favorite neighborhood bistros scattered throughout the city and surrounding region. Between them they represent an eclectic mix of cuisine styles including Cajun, French, Italian, Asian, Middle Eastern and many more, plus specialty restaurants offering fresh seafood, sizzling steaks and other exotic culinary delights.
Louisiana Restaurant Weeks in recent years have been huge successes, with as many as three dozen participating member restaurants offering locals and tourists alike special values at the tastiest spots in town.
The Louisiana Restaurant Association is one of the largest business organizations in the state and the restaurant industry in Louisiana is one the state’s largest private employers.
