Important Info: The City of New Orleans is currently under a COVID-19 mandate which requires proof of vaccination or negative test result upon entry into any inside establishment. While NOLA has many outdoor dining options, we understand many unvaccinated folks prefer to be indoors. Therefore, we suggest some amazing alternatatives in addition to our everyday New Orleans favorites. The mandate only applies to Orleans Parish businesses, and there are so many wonderful restaurants and bars in neighboring parishes, less than 10 minutes away. For further information about this mandate, please refer to NOLA.gov.
