It's time to update the Eater 38, your answer and ours to any question that begins, "Can you recommend a restaurant?"
This highly elite group of destinations are the places that you should go to tonight, tomorrow, and again and again. These are places that we think must exist, places that have impacted or represent the constantly evolving culinary canon of New Orleans. Looking for the hottest places in town? Turn to the Eater Heatmap instead.
The Eater 38 is updated quarterly, and are listed geographically rather than ranked. This time around, two restaurants join the list: Casamento's, Magazine Street's 1920s era oyster bar (now back from its summer hiatus); and Lilette, John Harris' seductive Uptown sparkler.
To make room, it's time to say goodbye (for now) to Sylvain and Pizza Delicious.
All restaurants must have been open at least six months to appear on this list. Send your tips and your nominations right here, or feel free to share thoughts in the comments.Read More
