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.
