The Dish | Keeping It Local

For me, holiday magic resides largely on Magazine Street, which unfolds over six miles from its foot at Canal Street up to Audubon Park, revealing multiple personalities through boutiques, haberdasheries, galleries, restaurants and cocktail spots along the way. The air is positively electric as people hauling shopping bags stuffed with unique goods – often locally […]

City Park at Christmas

Many of us of a – ahem – certain age who grew up in New Orleans fondly remember City Park’s “Celebration in the Oaks” driving tour. A winding path of lights that ended with the entrance to the park’s walking attractions, the driving tour was sadly one of the many things we lost after Hurricane […]

Nostalgia | E. A. Farley Florist

New Orleans native E.A. Farley started his plant nursery in Gentilly in 1911. There were no roads leading to the undeveloped cow pasture at the time, so he used wheelbarrows and later a wagon – once a wagon trail was cut through – to transport plants into the city. Over the following seven decades, E. […]
