The Kale Heatmap: Where To Eat Kale Right Now

View as Map

Yesterday evening you may have noticed all of your friends on Facebook and Twitter going off about a particular New York Times article that quotes recent hipstery-type transplants saying things like "New Orleans is not cosmopolitan. There's no kale here," and "So many of the cool places here are really rundown. And not because a stylist designed them that way."

It wouldn't be so bad if these transplants weren't eating in places that actually do serve kale. But fret not, dearest readers, New Orleans is no Brooklyn South, and there is kale to be had for all this very weekend. So, here now, Eater gives you The Kale Heatmap: Where to Eat Kale Right Now.

Don't see your favorite kale dish on the map? Leave a comment or send us a tip, and have a great weekend.
