The Lower Garden District is a fairly large neighborhood that runs roughly from St. Charles Avenue to the river, and Jackson to the Expressway. It’s got several different sub-neighborhoods with their own centers and attractions - Magazine Street between Jackson and Felicity, Magazine Street between Melpomene and Calliope, and St. Charles Avenue, for example - but they all fall under the auspices of this sometimes trendy, sometimes gritty ‘hood.
Dining in the LGD includes places to satisfy most diners: vegan-friendly, locally sourced, creative, cheap eats, special occasion splurge, boozy, meat-loving. Sometimes in one restaurant. Italian, Mexican, Cajun, Creole, and... is whiskey a food style?
Some of the city’s most creative food is contained in the Lower Garden District, and eating one’s way through it is a worthy personal challenge. (And make sure to wash everything down with world class beer, cocktails, whiskey, and wine.)
