This luxurious photography book on New Orleans restaurants celebrates the city’s love affair with food. From the legendary Tujague’s to the down-home Uglesich’s, these beloved establishments are shown off in all their glory for residents and visitors alike.
From the antebellum legacies of grand old restaurants like Antoine’s, Commander’s Palace, and Bruning’s to the newcomers like Jacques-Imo’s, Bayona, and Clancy’s, not to mention the legion in between, the countless stories of establishments dedicated to the je ne sais quoi of dining form part of the essential history of New Orleans. This rich mix of history and evocative photographs documents an unparalleled majesty of the senses, a decadent revelry in the past, and the daily marking of pleasure.
