Fodor's New Orleans 2014

Although New Orleans boasts many nationally known restaurants, the locals tend to frequent their neighborhood corner restaurant. Mandina's is such a spot, and has been since 1932. This Canal Street fixture serves just the right combination of expected favorites, including étouffée, po'boys, fried seafood, and pastas. Although the restaurant has expanded over the years, nothing has diminished the full flavors of the shrimp rémoulade, crawfish cakes, turtle soup, or, on Monday, tender red beans with Italian sausage. If you're looking for the ideal bar and restaurant to spend a football Sunday, complete with flat-screen TVs and the iciest beers in town, this is also your place.
