The mercury’s well into the 90’s and stepping outside can be as inviting as a wrapping yourself in a warm, wet blanket – but don’t despair, COOLinary time is in the air!
An August tradition, COOLinary New Orleans is the way many of the city’s dining establishments give respite to an overheated public in the form of otherwise unheard of meal-deals: three-course lunches at $20 or less and three-course dinners at $35 or less at over 50 award winning restaurants.
What better way to beat the heat than tucking into New Orleans’ signature vittles at some of the region’s best eateries?
COOLinary’s unparalleled list of participating restaurants reads like a who’s who of must-see venues for visiting foodies. New Orleans-style Creole and Cajun cuisine cheek by jowl with fine, International culinary styles, and traditional, seafood and steakhouse fare. Just writing about it’s killing me.

And after you’ve nibbled that last little tidbit off the bone and undone that top button, what finer feeling in the world than to mosey back to the kind of homey and unique accommodations the big hotels and little motels can’t even conceive of but which the local, New Orleans bed and breakfast’s never stop striving for?
