Willie Mae's Scotch House

View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

Beignets, oysters, and gumbo are all on the Mt. Rushmore of New Orleans’ greatest dishes. The fourth spot is reserved for the fried chicken at Willie Mae’s Scotch House. Located in the Treme, this place is vintage NOLA at its very best and feels more like you’re eating in someone’s house than an actual restaurant. It closes at 5pm daily and waits can be upwards of two hours during the lunch rush, so we recommend going for a late afternoon snack around 4pm.

Meauxbar

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.

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.

Green Goddess is a picturesque outdoor spot hidden down an alley in the French Quarter, with plenty of vegan and vegetarian options.

Cane & Table

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.
