Cafe Beignet

Cafe Beignet

in Cafe, Restaurant

Serving up the quintessential New Orleans pastry (pronounced ben-yays) with coffee, as well as essential local cuisine, the Café's two locations make perfect stops for a fine bite in an old Big Easy atmosphere. Jambalaya, red beans and rice, gumbo--all the Cajun classics. At the Bourbon Street location in the Music Legends Park, live jazz starts at 10 a.m. Prime spots for breakfast, as well.

Krystal

Krystal

in Restaurant

True, no one has to come to New Orleans to enjoy Krystal, but let's face it: Those little burgers and sandwiches just hit the spot, no matter where you are. These days try the new BBQ, with Floyd's Sweet and Southern Sauce. One of the freezes or shakes--try the banana pudding--will cool you down in the New Orleans heat. But don't take our word, trust the locals: Krystal's is a favorite spot for chow.

Historic New Orleans Collection

Historic New Orleans Collection

in Exhibit, Cultural, Historic

Whether at their headquarters on Royal Street or their old New Orleans building on Chartres Street at their research center, the Historic Collection speaker, exhibit, program or Friday evening Concert in the Courtyard will be first rate. The focus tends to be on the city's connections to Europe, Africa and the Caribbean, but they also offers fine material about our local history, jazz culture and the like.

American Italian Museum and Library

American Italian Museum and Library

in Cultural, Educational, Historic

The American Italian Cultural Center and the museum inside it offer a rich and enjoyable overview of the Italian contribution to a city more associated with the French, the Caribbean and Africa. Who knew that at the origin of jazz hornmen like Nick LaRocca were holding their own with the likes of King Oliver and Louis Armstrong. The Italfian flair for jazz, by the way, lives on with the likes of Pete Fountain.
