The Best New Restaurants in New Orleans

The Knuckle Sandwich, Wayfare

JEFFERY JOHNSTON

Usually over lunch, sandwiches brought to the office, our food writers and members of the editorial staff gather to determine the year’s group of best new restaurants in New Orleans. Such a conversation could easily stretch into dinner because there are always so many to consider. The scene is lively with new faces and new places, as well as old faces moving to different places. Plus, there are always a few places opening that are so new that we just haven’t had time to adequately judge them. From all that, however, emerges a list. While one could quarrel over our decision of which is the very best – a quarrel we’ve sometimes had among ourselves – there’s no argument that these are all worthy restaurants. Get out and try them, because there’s always a new crop coming.
