Al Fresco Dining
Dining in the Open Air in New Orleans

New Orleans tropical climate means outdoor fun. Among our many outdoor activities is dining in the open air or, as it is known in the gastronomical lexicon – al fresco.

Al fresco dining calls to mind the open-air cafes on Paris’s Avenue de Champs Elyseé, the cafes in the piazzas of Rome and Venice and elsewhere in the big cities of Europe. Here in New Orleans there are a multitude of eateries, coffee shops and pastry shops where you can dine European style – al fresco – and enjoy the sights and sounds of the Crescent City that surround you.

Below are just a few suggested places that offer al fresco dining:
