La Petite Grocery

One of the best free things you can do in New Orleans is walk through the Garden District on Magazine Street. The whole stretch is lined with restaurants, bars, and shops, so you can snack and drink as you go. But one place you’ll want to save room for is La Petite Grocery. It’s a modern take on Creole fine dining and while the whole menu is excellent, we’re especially big fans of the blue crab beignets and pasta with turtle ragu. If you make it in for brunch instead, make sure to get a Bloody Mary, which comes topped with shrimp, crab, and pickled vegetables, and is basically a meal by itself.

The Carousel Bar at Hotel Monteleone is indeed a bar on a moving carousel, and while it can feel a bit gimmicky, you should still grab a drink here.
