Where Y'Eat: Red Beans, Po-Boys And A Hearty Greek Heritage

Greek Fest is held each year on Bayou St. John at the Holy Trinity Cathedral.
Ian McNulty

Tracing the roots of a widespread network of New Orleans restaurateurs back to one Greek island and one shared American story.

“Opa!” that’s the universal Greek exclamation of joy, and you’ll be hearing it a lot this weekend as the Greek Festival returns to the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral in Lakeview. But for some of those sharing in the opa spirit, the toast is about more than just the revelry of the moment.

Where Y'Eat: A New Look For Asian Flavors In New Orleans

Kung pao pastrami at Red's Chinese in New Orleans.
Ian McNulty

You can chalk up the fiery burn of some dishes at Red’s Chinese to potent chiles. And that fleeting tingle across your tongue? That’s the work of Szechuan peppercorns. But what really gets the blood pulsing at this new Bywater restaurant goes beyond individual ingredients, and gets to something on the rise for restaurants around New Orleans.

Where Y'Eat: To Celebrate Spring, Bring On The Boil

As crawfish season peaks, so do the occassions that draw people together in southeast Louisiana.
Ian McNulty

There are lots of ways to prepare crawfish, but it’s the boil that brings out their best qualities, and these are not limited to flavor. Served in massive quantities, dumped upon a table where friends and strangers feast alongside each other, crawfish are the ultimate social food. And as it happens, the annual crawfish mania across this state hits its stride just when Louisiana itself is at its most social.

Where Y'Eat: Food Museum Proves Appetizing, Evocative

The Southern Food & Beverage Museum in New Orleans marks its grand opening this weekend, April 17-19.
SoFAB Institute

Some museums offer a chance to connect with the highest achievements of art and ingenuity, to gaze over priceless wonders or to better understand pivotal moments of human history.

At the Southern Food & Beverage Museum, some of what resonates most richly may be artifacts you once had in your pantry or old brand names whose jingles are still stuck in your head.

You’re less likely to swoon over some rarified treasure as to delight in the recognition of something tied up with your own traditions and ties to the region’s food culture.

Where Y'Eat: The Ever-Expanding Tortilla Wraps Around New Orleans

A trio of tacos from Del Fuego Taqueria in New Orleans.
Ian McNulty

Mention Mexican food and many people think they already know the score. They start picturing tacos and burritos, chips and salsa, gobs of sour cream and rivers of melted cheddar. These are the touchstones of Tex-Mex cooking. That’s what many of us were raised on when it came to Mexican food. And, for the record, I love that stuff still.

But consider how the differences stacked up during a meal at Del Fuego Taqueria, a Uptown eatery that is part of a wave of new Mexican restaurants arriving in New Orleans.
