A Homecoming at the Sazerac Bar

The revived Sazerac Bar inside the revived Roosevelt Hotel.
Ian McNulty

New Orleans, La. –
The historic Sazerac Bar is special to a lot of New Orleanians, though it's extra special for one of my best friends. Let's call him Keith since, well, that's his name. He had a first date there with a young medical student named Eva one night in 2002, when the hotel where the Sazerac is located was called the Fairmont.

The Year in New Orleans Restaurants

Mondo, pictured, was part of a rich harvest of new restaurants in 2010.
Ian McNulty WWNO

If some people out there still don't yet appreciate the heritage of our cuisine and the natural abundance that fuels it, I really wish they would get with the program already. After all, I don't think our region can stand another brutal lesson in just how much it all means.

The French Quarter's French 75

Arnaud's Restaurant

The holiday season is my favorite time to be in the French Quarter. The Old World architecture and the narrow streets seem especially evocative.
