Eating your way down Magazine Street one dish at a time

NOLA Guide Icon

There are plenty of eateries and bars along Magazine Street. We wish we’d been able to try more, but we could only eat and drink so much.

To give you a sampling of various foods, we’ve compiled a list of small dishes and cocktails you can try at several places as you make your food/bar crawl down Magazine.

Note: it’s not really practical to do this crawl only on foot; therefore, we strongly recommend renting a bike to reach the various clusters of eateries. Or, take bus #11 to General Pershing Street to start your crawl working your way to Race Street. Your first stop along the way is:

La Petite Grocery Magazine Street

La Petit Grocery – This restaurant often ranks as one of the top 10 eateries in New Orleans. They offer a uniquely varied menu that’s pricier than other establishments listed here.

Blue Crab Beignets La Petite Grocery Magazine Street New Orleans

For this food crawl, we recommend their delicious Blue Crab Beignets. 4238 Magazine St.

From here it’s a 15-minute walk or an easier 3-minute bike ride to:

Exterior Dat Dog Magazine Street New Orleans

Dat Dog – This is not your typical hotdog stand. They offer a premium selection of sausages with unique flavors and toppings.

Duck Dog with Grilled Onions and Blackberry Sauce from Dat Dog Magazine Street New Orleans

Here we recommend their secret menu item: the Duck Special with grilled onions topped with bacon, homemade bbq sauce, blackberry sauce, and mustard – It’s really, really good! Wash it down with a cold Louisiana-brewed craft beer on tap. 3336 Magazine St.
