Food and dining in New Orleans is unique and varied, with a vibrant culinary tradition that covers everything from fried alligator to creole diners, turtle soup to burgers and fries. Check out Coterie for the alligator sausage or visit the Court of the Two Sisters for upscale dining. Get the Ferdi Original with Debris (pronounced "DAY=bree") at Mother's, where it all started for a classic Po'boy.

To find some of the best live local zydeco music and good food to match, check out Mulate's. Finally, a visit to Café du Monde for café au lait and beignets is a must.
