From Feast to Film: The Local’s Guide to Upcoming Events in New Orleans
Experience the one-of-a-kind ambiance, temperate climate and Southern hospitality characteristic of the Big Easy during an array of events that highlight the city’s unique food, music and culture.
This September, embrace what defines New Orleans and indulge your taste buds during a weeklong celebration of culinary deliciousness. We Live to Eat Restaurant Week, slated for Sept. 14-20, gives foodies the chance to try a new spot or revisit an old favorite with custom prix fixe menus highlighting the season’s best offerings at restaurants across the city. At The Grill Room, guests can indulge in Chef Daniel Causgrove’s contemporary Southern cuisine with Louisiana flare, from blue crab bisque and peach-arugula salad to country ham wrapped Mississippi rabbit loin or local market fish with corn maque choux.
On Sept. 20, enjoy one of New Orleans’ most fashionable pastimes during an afternoon Prohibition Tea in Le Salon. At this spirited tea service, sip specialty cocktails from tea cups in true speakeasy fashion. Mixologist Kent Westmoreland presents a menu of four cocktails paired with a three-course service complete with seasonal scones, desserts and small, brunch-inspired treats, like smoked salmon mini club sandwiches with dill aioli and foie gras mousse on brioche with basil and a maraschino cherry glaze.
New Orleans' Old World roots have fostered a strong foundation and long-standing appreciation for the arts. The local art scene thrives with countless galleries, performance spaces and museums, and Windsor Court boasts a museum-quality collection of paintings, sculptures, tapestries and furnishings valued at more than $8 million. At Art for Art’s Sake on Oct. 3, join more than 30,000 art lovers at one of the most chic street parties ever. Catch a glimpse of awe-inspiring art collections at local galleries and enjoy free admission to the Ogden Museum of Southern Art and the Contemporary Arts Center.
Also in October, as New Orleans’ offering of local festivals continues to expand, the New Orleans Film Festival is no exception. Celebrating its 26th anniversary Oct. 15-22, the once-local production has developed into a premier, Oscar-qualifying, film festival, attracting thousands of producers, directors, writers and actors from across the globe. Films are shown throughout the city and include full-length features, shorts, animation and music videos.
