Where to Eat in New Orleans Right Now
The gist: Situated at the top of the French Quarter, it’d be easy to walk right past Palm & Pine, but you’d be making a mistake. Stop in for the fusion of Louisiana and Caribbean, Mexican, and Central American flavors, and stay for the mezcal selection.
The food: Dig into a crab claw cocktail, beef picadillo-stuffed yuca fritters, and the chile butter tacos, but don’t forget to check out the latest specials like the Upper Quarter Pounder, which became a veritable pandemic staple.
The cost: Small plates $8 - $14, mains $21 - $26.
