Antoine's Restaurant | French Quarter Restaurant Since 1840

Antoine's - oldest family established restaurant in the US, invented Oyster's Rockefeller. Super fancy though - and we'd probably need a reservation.

Dooky Chase's restaurant.  A New Orleans institution! A great soul food lunch buffet.  Leah Chase's fried chicken is some of the best you will ever eat!

French Quarter Festival | I've done so much in #NOLA but French Quarter Fest was probably one of the best days of my life. I defended my thesis that morning, ran home and changed, went to the Fest, and celebrated all day. The music was incredible as always and the food was some of the best from around the city. Probably one of the top 10 best days of my life EVER.

How to talk like a New Orleanian.  This is a fun video that makes me feel good, hearing a voice from my homeland.  Remember, though, accents and dialects, like in most other places, vary from neighborhood to neighborhood.  F'rinstance, I do pronounce my "R"s, and I've always called my town "New OR-lee-anz".  There are other differences as well.  But this is one of the best discussions on the subject I've found yet. A "yat" accent is Downtown.  My accent is Uptown.

I'm shocked nobody has done a New Orleans Yat accent yet, especially since we are rather very proud of our distinct accent and dialect that sets us apart fro.
