French Quarter Festival has added some new vendors to the party this year. Here are five new restaurants that will be featured:
1. Café Dauphine
Café Dauphine serves delicious seafood at an affordable price. Their menu includes stuffed fish and shrimp, ribs, hamburger steak, creole pepper fish, fried stuffed bell peppers, and oysters. Located in the Lower Ninth Ward on Dauphine Street, the restaurant’s mission is to create clientele from those can’t pass on a good meal, and an even better deal.
2. The Company Burger
The Company Burger has been opened since 2011 and serves more than your traditional beef burger. They also have lamb burgers, turkey burgers, chicken sandwiches, hotdogs, and—if you’re looking for a quick sweet treat—milkshakes in five different flavors. The restaurant has a Freret Street location uptown and an O’Keefe Avenue location downtown.
So Bou sells Louisiana street-inspired small plates and is open seven days a week, with a menu that changes throughout the day. Their menu includes Andouille deviled eggs, boudin balls, pork crackling, and bourbon braised ribs. SoBou has a main dining room, a semi-private pool room, a beer garden with self-serve wine machines and tables with built-in beer taps, a bar with a bar chef table, and another semi-private room for up to 10 people. They also offer limited complimentary parking in the W Hotel in the French Quarter.
4. Café Beignet
Café Beignet is based around New Orleans’s European tradition of beignets and coffee, but this place serves a much more than its name! They serve breakfast and many New Orleans-style entrees including poboys, muffulettas, jambalaya, and gumbo. The restaurant has three downtown locations —Bourbon Street, Royal Street, and Decatur Street.
5. The Daily Beet
The Daily Beet is a juice bar and café that provides healthy dining options, including salads, smoothies, cold-pressed juices, and light breakfast options. The restaurant is located on Girod Street but provides an option to order online at thedailybeetnola.com
