Central Grocery’s famous muffaletta
| Central Grocery/Official

The French Quarter is the oldest square mile in New Orleans and home to more restaurants and bars per square block than any other neighborhood. And while visitors to the Quarter typically seek to experience those establishments in person, there’s a whole slew of takeout and delivery options available for residents of the neighborhood and beyond — now more than ever.

This guide is a cross section of food available for takeout or delivery in the Vieux Carre, from historic places that sell iconic dishes (Central Grocery and Galatoire’s) to newer, hipper spots (Killer PoBoys) to over-the-top special occasion restaurants (GW Fins, Doris Metropolitan) for a splurge meal at home. As always, check restaurant websites and social media to confirm current hours.

Dian Xin has answered the French Quarter and the entire city’s prayers for excellent, traditional dim sum.

Order online for curbside pickup on lower Decatur (an option that’s currently a whole lot easier than it’s ever been before) every day except Monday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
