Laura's CandiesLaura’s Pralines and Candies

Nestled in the historic French Quarter, the Creole pralines and hand-dipped chocolates here are made fresh daily with recipes that date back to the 18th century. New Orleans’ oldest candy store is still going strong.

Johnny’s Po-boy

The oldest family-owned po-boy restaurant in New Orleans, Johnny's Po' Boys has been serving the French Quarter crowd since 1950. For Scott Conant, their Muffaletta sandwich, made with ham, salami, mozzarella and an olive mix, is a must-try.

The Old Coffeepot

Classic Cajun and Creole cuisine has been the calling card here since 1894. We’ll try the same jambalaya that Guy Fieri featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives.

Po Boy Sandwich


This restaurant was previously a Spanish armory before it started serving classic Creole dishes in an elegant setting. We’ll try their house specialty – a tender boiled beef brisket served in Creole sauce with just a touch of horseradish.
