In New Orleans we don't just eat to live: "We Live to Eat." Our cuisine is a part of who we are and what defines the city’s unique culture.
For one week in September, some of the best restaurants in New Orleans are offering special discounted prices, so you can fully experience all the cuisine that makes this city so special.
During the week of September 14-20, the Louisiana Restaurant Association's Greater New Orleans Chapter is sponsoring the 5th Annual Restaurant Week under the banner theme stated above: “We Live to Eat.”
During this weeklong celebration of New Orleans cuisine, participating restaurants throughout the New Orleans metro area will offer special prix fixe (fixed price) menus, giving diners the opportunity to try items at 25% off the regular price. The restaurants that are taking part in this promotion will be offering two-course lunches for under $20 and three-course dinners for under $39.
Participating restaurants range from fine dining establishments in the French Quarter and downtown New Orleans to favorite neighborhood bistros scattered throughout the city and surrounding region. Between them they represent an eclectic mix of cuisine styles including Cajun, French, Italian, Asian, Middle Eastern and many more, plus specialty restaurants offering fresh seafood, sizzling steaks and other exotic culinary delights.
Louisiana Restaurant Weeks in recent years have been huge successes, with as many as three dozen participating LRA member restaurants offering locals and tourists alike special values at the tastiest spots in town.
Commitments of participation for 2015 have been received from many of the city's top-dollar restaurants, including:
