New Orleans:  I crave the taste of you on my lips.

Leaving the Big Easy is always difficult. I always wish I had just one more day …my soul always yearns for another night there. A mixture of savory food and soul moving music, there is no other city in the world with the ambiance of New Orleans.

But visits to New Orleans can’t just be about the food.  It can’t just be about the music or the culture.  Trips to the Big Easy must include all three.

With that said, my favorite way to savor New Orleans is to go to a restaurant or bar, order their signature cocktail, share an appetizer, and listen to the band.  Then go to the next stop and do the same, over and over and over until my soul is satisfied.  

Every establishment in New Orleans has a signature cocktail.  And almost every establishment has a signature appetizer.  (Just ask the wait staff for recommendations.)  And no two music acts in NOLA sound the same.  Ever.

My recommendations?  

Start at the first establishment near the corner of Bourbon Street and Canal Street: Redfish Grille. Order the gumbo.

Redfish Grill also offers a solid wine list.

Don’t even think about sharing this Alligator Sausage Gumbo with anyone else…you will want to keep this Redfish Grill specialty all to yourself.

Next, proceed a couple of doors down to the Bourbon Street Drinkery. Always a good musical act there.

Then venture off of Bourbon Street and explore.  The Royal House is sure to have a fabulous band, mouth-watering oysters…and a tempting cocktail.

But after that, allow your soul (and your ears) to draw you to the next spot.  No plan.  No agenda.  Fly by the seat of your pants.  Allow the Spirit of New Orleans to guide you to where you should go.
