Hop on the #11 bus Magazine St.& get off at Washington St. Be prepared for a lively decorated, locals place that serves the best Creole dishes. Fried green tomatoes, jambalaya, red beans & rice and have a local Abita beer…Dee-lish! Go early, Magazine St. has lots of shopping and is close to the Garden District.

Centrally located on Magazine Street, the lunch/dinner spot is a perfect New Orleans diner spot. Casual atmosphere with daily specials such as meatloaf, turkey and stuffing, lamb shanks to die for (on Tuesday), white beans and rice, and everyday seafood dishes and sandwiches. The cobbler for dessert or the brownie pie should be shared - order both is you dare!... More

Traditional New Orleans home-style cooking in a historic building on Magazine Street, close to boutique shopping with plenty of street parking. Staples like red beans and rice done well, also with po-boys, salads and heartier dishes like pork chops and white beans, fried eggplant stack with shrimp, fried chicken, green beans with bacon, etc. High ceilings and local art with...

I was walking down Magazine St. and happened to see this restaurant. The name sounded familiar so I went in. Large menu with all kinds of cooking styles and a lot of comfort food. I went in for lunch. I decided on the Eggplant Napoleon, which was just an appetizer, for $11.00 It was delicious and there was so much... More

We got there Saturday afternoon 5:00'ish. Had been told to sit in the front section by some locals. I had the steak and Glenda had a hamburger. We ordered an appetizer of onion rings which came out after almost finished with steak. Other than that the food was great. We split a blackberry cobbler topped with ice cream. It was... More

We were recommended this place by our hotel guys but we only had time to stop for a drink but would have loved to have had lunch here as the food looked delicious and very reasonable. We had white wine Sangria's which took me by surprise as they were fantastic and despite being given the recipe, I can't create like... More

5 min walk from Lafayette number 1 cemetery. service efficient and friendly, food tasty and fresh - nice ambience with a mix of locals and tourists. Would have scored 5 but the coke was a little flat and watery, I have no hesitation in recommending this place

Stopped in to get out of the heat and to grab a quick bite to eat after a tour. Daughter had the kids chicken tenders, Son had the bread pudding and I had a cup of gumbo. All were excellent. Got a bit crowded by 1PM.

Great restaurant in a unique part of town. Their Shrimp Magazine entree (large butterfly shrimp lightly floured and pan fried, then sauteed in olive oil, garlic, artichoke hearts, ham and green onions, served over pasta) is simply out of this world!

Staying in Garden District

Neighborhood Profile
Garden District
Head to the Garden District for the full-on New Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions, picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give yourself ample time for admiration at a languidly slow pace befitting such gentile strand of riverside living and to allow you to maximize each opportunity to stop and smell the roses – and whichever other blooms you might come across. While taking it all in, you’d do well to dine at one of the city’s most beloved destinations for regional cuisine. Gourmands from far and wide (and right round the corner) swear the age-old Commander’s Palace is the best restaurant in town – and have been doing so since it opened back in 1880.
