The Definitive Guide of Where to Dine During Tales Of The Cocktail, No Matter What the Situation

View as Map

Tales of the Cocktail starts tomorrow, and if you're in town for the world's most spirited event, welcome. During this week, all Tales-attendees will be faced with many choices of where to dine while inebriated, hungover, or you know, just plain hungry.

Say you have a friend who is gluten free, another is vegetarian, another is vegan AND gluten free, you'll all be dining late or want comfort food or breakfast at four in the morning. Here is a map that covers dining for all situations. It covers dietary restrictions, different meals, strange times of day, crazy cravings, highbrow to lowbrow vibe and finances, and assorted food styles. And these places are all within walking distance, or short cab ride, from Tales' headquarters, The Hotel Monteleone.

This is, of course, not an inclusive list of the awesomeness of the New Orleans food scene, but it's a great place to start.

No one will judge you at Popeye's, and some nights you really need that. Get yourself some fried chicken and a biscuit to soak up all the booze of the day.

Felipe's Taqueria

Copy Link
For when you need a cheap, filling, and tasty meal to start the night (or afternoon) with, Felipe's is great to get all the food groups (cheese, sour cream, pork, and salsa) in one swoop. You can grab it to go or sit at the bar and partake in a surprisingly inexpensive and impressive cocktail program. Several vegetarian options, too.

Meauxbar

If you're feeling fancy, check out the bistro fare at Meauxbar on N, Rampart Street, near Bar Tonique. Great service, fantastic food, open till midnight on the weekend (11pm during the week.)

Cleo Mediterranean Cuisine & Convenience

Copy Link
For vegans, vegetarians, gluten free folks, and anyone who digs on hummus, falafel, kebabs, and baklava, check out this convenience store-slash-well regarded Mediterranean restaurant in the CBD. It's open 24 hours a day, is located a block past Canal, and perfectly situated to hit after the Sazerac Bar in the Roosevelt Hotel at any time of the day or night.

Gene's Poboys and Daiquiris

Copy Link
Open 24 hours, on Elysian Fields and St. Claude, this blazing pink building is the place to go for New Orleans poboys. The hot sausage and roast beef varieties are the most popular. Stumble up here from the music clubs checking out shows on Frenchmen or St. Claude. Get a free soda with your sandwich!

Sylvain

Copy Link
Great cocktails, great food, great atmosphere. This is for when you have a little time and want to experience a little low-key but high-quality New Orleans food. Ingredients are sourced locally and the food hews true to Creole and Gulf Coast traditions.

Camellia Grill

Copy Link
Breakfast all day, diner style food. Hash browns, chili, eggs, bacon, burgers, and all manners of hangover helpers and pre-drinking breakfasting. Investigate.

Three Muses

This is the place to hang when you want to listen to live music while you eat. And drink delicious tequila (and other) libations made by Kimberly Patton-Bragg.
