Bourdain in New Orleans

During his 36-hour layover in New Orleans, Anthony Bourdain slurps down a giant Styrofoam cup of judgement-imparing goodness at one of NOLA’s signature frozen daiquiri shops, visits one of the city’s first (and best) food trucks and shoots the s**t with writer Lolis Elie, chef Donald Link and musician Davis Rogan … just to name a few.

Sounds a lot like your typical trip to the Big Easy, right?

Ok, so it’s rather unlikely that on your next trip to N’awlins you’ll snack on BBQ shrimp on the shore of Lake Pontchartrain with the famed chef of Cochon, but that doesn’t mean you can’t replicate Mr. Bourdain’s trip. See where Tony eats and sleeps while in New Orleans (plus some more recommendations) in our Travel Guide, or download the Layover app to create an itinerary on the go.

Check out behind-the-scenes photos of Tony and the crew, and tune in tonight, Jan. 28 at 9|8c to watch as he eats and drinks his way through New Orleans with the locals … and avoids the French Quarter at all costs.

    Mr Bourdain, Thank you and your team for the excellent show on New Orleans. For those of us who live here, we collectively cringe when the city is presented as an adult Disney World. You touched on so many great place for food and music. I found myself wanting to show you so many others that we locals cherish and support. Thank you, thank you.

  2. I'd never heard of the Layover app until now, so thanks Allee.
