10 "Date Night" restaurants in New Orleans.
Cafe Sbisa serves classic creole food, but really you come here for the great second floor patio, or to grab drinks at their restored bar.
Sylvain in the French Quarter is the neighborhood spot you wish was on your block, with some classic dishes and a back patio perfect for a drink.
Go to Meauxbar in the Quarter to eat French food, talk to some locals, and have a drink or two that isn’t served in any kind of bucket.
Cane & Table is either a restaurant with excellent drinks, or a cocktail bar with great food. Either way, it’s one of the best escapes in the Quarter.
Bacchanal in the Bywater is a wine-fueled utopia, with nightly live music, a huge backyard, and an atmosphere that could never be duplicated.
The wood-fired oysters at Cochon are one of the single best things you can eat in New Orleans, and their cocktails are pretty good, too.
Galatoire’s is an old school spot in the French Quarter known for tuxedo-clad servers, classic Creole food, and their very boozy Friday lunch.
La Petite Grocery is where to go in the Garden District for great modern Creole food, and the best bowl of turtle ragu you’ll ever eat.
N7 is hidden away on a side street in the Bywater, serves fancy canned seafood, and feels like a secret dinner party you randomly stumbled across.
