Restaurant Week New Orleans offers more bang for your buck

RWNO runs all week with special pricing at over 100 local restaurants.

It seems like there’s always some sort of celebration of New Orleans restaurants going on. If it’s not a hyper-specific festival, then it’s a month-long counter against the August doldrums. Even among that crowded culinary calendar, Restaurant Week New Orleans stands out.

The main draw? Discounts! Unlike the premium you’ll pay to eat all the best food in a single festival, Restaurant Week encourages dining spots across the city to lower their prices so that locals can indulge once a year.

With over 100 restaurants participating — including everything from the Grande Dames and Commander’s Palace on down to Reginelli’s Pizza — you’re sure to find some kind of deal.
