New Orleans series part 5/5

By Richelle Harrison Plesse

New Orleans is famous for its stellar dining scene, with the locals fiercely proud of the city's unique Creole culinary heritage: a melting pot of French, Spanish, Italian and Afro-Caribbean influences. When Hurricane Katrina made landfall in 2005, every aspect of the city's daily life was brought to a standstill and forced to reset - including the restaurants. But today, the city's iconic dining institutions are a lesson in defiant survival, while a dizzying crop of new restaurants have opened up, winning an army of loyal foodie fans. This, as new talent rises up through the kitchens and more and more chefs from outside New Orleans move to the city. Richelle Harrison Plesse meets the city's tastemakers.
