Creole | Covington, New Orleans

We had our family(eleven total) Thanksgiving at this beautiful plantation. The service was great and the food was delicious. Most of us chose the turkey dinner(with oyster dressing,sweet potatoe,and green beans). The oyster stuffing was our favorite. Everyone raved about their desert. The bread pudding and cheese cake were a hit. Would do this again next year. Great food without any fuss. More

Discover New Orleans

French, Spanish and Creole influences evolved New Orleans cuisine into a genre all its own. Combine Gulf coast seafood, a butter-based sauce and Cajun spices, and you’re looking at a classic Nola dish. Take the famed crawfish boil, for instance, which locals advise is best eaten as a family. In the aftermath of hurricane Katrina, the restaurant industry banded together to support their city in the wake of serious devastation. New restaurants began opening their doors, and today you’ll find a wealth of cuisines that span the classics to modern reinventions to everything in between.
