Participating restaurants will offer exquisite dishes that are representative of our city’s food culture,” said Kim Priez, Vice President of Tourism for the New Orleans CVB.

Here’s your chance to delve into the delectable creations by two award-winning Executive Chefs John Folse and Rick Tramonto.
