Good news from Ian McNulty, food writer for New Orleans' weekly Gambit. He's written of late about the re-opening of numerous restaurants outside the tourist districts of the city.
Some of them, such as Elizabeth's in the Bywater and Juan's Flying Burrito in badly flooded Mid-City are among my favorite places to eat.
Eating out is a key element of life in New Orleans unlike most other places, such as San Diego, where dining at a restaurant is less a social affair and more a function of biology.
