2. Central City/Garden District
The stretch of Magazine St between Napoleon Ave and the Interstate alone is, block by block, just jammed full of so many fantastic places to eat and drink, from fancy cocktails at Bouligny Tavern to dives like The Club Ms Mae’s and The Rendezvous Tavern, and cuisine spanning from tapas to Greek, Mexican, po' boy shops, Caribbean, sushi, pizza, and the refined fare of restaurants like La Petite Grocery, Lilette, and Coquette. You also have that same stretch along historic St. Charles Ave, where you’ll find places like the Avenue Pub, the Irish House, The Delachaise, and so on. It’s all pretty wonderful.
