This spring edition of our New Orleans dining guide is arranged by neighborhood, though each restaurant here is recommended for reasons that go beyond location.
Below is a map showing the locations of the Essential 100 restaurants, including contact information, hours and pricing. Use this map to find new restaurants in your neighborhood, or refer to it when choosing a restaurant in an area that might not be as familiar to you. (To see a full-screen view of the map and search by address, click "view larger map" in the upper right corner.)
