Local chefs show off some of their signature dishes.

New Orleans loves to pay tribute to its heritage. It could be safely said that no one else extols its history quite so lavishly. We play host to more parades, create more music and wear more beaded costumes than any other city in America. In addition, we also celebrate New Orleans culture every day in a very simple fashion: We sit down to a meal together and enjoy the unique flavors passed down from the first inhabitants — the city’s Spanish, French, Creole and Cajun settlers.

Here, cuisine is culture. To honor it, we’re featuring four of the area’s most exciting restaurants. In the following pages, we paired elegant accessories for your table with modern-day culinary classics from Bayona, Del Porto, Herbsaint and Lola.

We hope to inspire your own inner chef with these mouthwatering dishes and with the one-of-a-kind utensils, plates and extraordinary accent pieces from many of New Orleans’ finest home furnishing retailers.
