TRAVELING IN OUR FABULOUS GAY WORLD: Best Restaurants in New Orleans

Published Date Author: , March 11th, 2017

On our recent trip to New Orleans we had the opportunity to dine at some really great restaurants. Each one was different and that is always a good thing.

VacherieFor fine dining we enjoyed VACHERIE, 827 Toulouse Street, and is located in the historic Hotel St. Marie.

For reservations, call 504.207.4532. Vacherie Restaurant is named for the town of Vacherie, Louisiana, a small community situated on the banks of the Mississippi river just west of New Orleans. Laura’s Plantation, which is the only plantation that we highly recommend visiting is nearby. Chef Jarred Zeringue grew up there amid the sprawling farms, grand live oaks and antebellum plantations. They are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and they also have a large bar for those who just to stop in for a drink or two.

Eat New OrleansFor our appetizer, we enjoyed the Alligator Tail Etouffee with Jasmine Rice which was really tasty. For our entrees we had the Pan Roasted Duck Breast with Steen’s Cane Syrup Glaze which was a real treat and the Crab Cakes Remoulade with Corn and Creole Green Beans which melted in your mouth. And for dessert what else but the Louisiana Pecan Pie. Paul was our very attentive and professional server.

He also has another fabulous restaurant called, EAT, 900 Dumaine Street, . We especially enjoyed talking with the Manager, Erik. He and his husband are what makes us very proud about young Gay men. We wish them the VERY BEST in their lives together and with their family!

Mona Lisa's New OrleansFor wonderful Italian we enjoy: MONA LISA’s, 1212 Royal Street, We enjoy this restaurant because it is FUN place to dine.

Even though you don’t know any of the other guests, everyone talks to one another. The owners, Tom and Farrow are extremely FUN and on top of everything.

Cheezy Cajun - New OrleansFor true Cajun cuisine we enjoy: THE CHEEZY CAJUN, 3325 St. Claude,

Here you will find some of the best Cajun in New Orleans. Actually most of their guests say that it IS the best Cajun food in New Orleans. The owners, Doug and Michael are wonderful guys.

Don and RayAlways remember to have fun when traveling, meet new people and talk to everyone!
