Middle Eastern Food in New Orleans

For delicious Middle Eastern restaurants that fit any budget, New Orleans locals know where to turn... Many of these establishments are located Uptown, but visitors can find a Lebanese bistro or hookah café tucked away in any New Orleans neighborhood.

Middle Eastern cuisine offers a fresh alternative to typical New Orleans fare with whole grains, olive oils, fish, legumes, pitas, and vegetables. Popular dishes also include falafel, shawarma, hummus, bread, couscous, burghul, lamb, and chicken with a variety of incredible spices. Middle Eastern restaurants tend to be a paradise for vegetarian or vegan diners in the Crescent City. From veggie-only kebabs and hummus to stuffed vegetables and salads, there are plenty of dishes people with dietary restrictions can enjoy without worry.

If you and your family are interested in treating your taste buds to Middle Eastern restaurants, New Orleans has several well-rated establishments to offer.
